Mollie King has said she and Prince Harry are "friends".

The Saturdays star and the British royal are rumoured to be dating and for the first time the blonde beauty has spoken about their relationship.

Mollie and Harry, 27, first met at a polo match in 2010 and in recent weeks the pair have been partying together at Public nightclub and karaoke bar Bunga Bunga in London.

During a Q&A session between the girl group and fans on twitter on Tuesday (24.04.12), the 24-year-old singer was bombarded with questions about the prince but she insisted they are not an item.

She wrote: "Guys I'm getting a lot of tweets about Prince Harry but ... i'm not dating him & we're not in a relationship. We're just friends. (sic)"

Mollie - who split from male model David Gandy in February - and Harry were allegedly set up by his cousin Zara Phillips, who is a friend of the pop star's Saturdays bandmate Una Healy.

Meanwhile, The Saturdays have signed a development deal with E! to star in a reality TV show.

The five-piece band - which consists of Una, Mollie, Frankie Sandford, Vanessa White and Rochelle Wiseman - have agreed terms with the network to have their personal and professional lives documented on camera. - Bang Showbiz
