Mollie King wants to date Calvin Harris.

The 29-year-old singer only separated from her on/off lover David Gandy earlier this year but it seems she's not wasting any time moving on as she's desperate to snag a date with the DJ following his recent split from Taylor Swift.

She told the MailOnline of the talented star: ''Body aside, he's definitely got the banter. I have seen some of his Snapchats, and he's got a good dry sense of humour like myself.''

And, although she's got her eye on the 32-year-old hunk, Mollie is considering taking up speed dating to find a beau.

She explained: ''I was watching a film the other day and there was a scene where there was speed dating and I thought, 'Oh my god, that looks like an absolute ball.' I think that would be really fun. I haven't had any time to go on many dates.''

Meanwhile, The Saturdays star should have no trouble bagging a famous boyfriend now that she's befriended Kesha after meeting her at a songwriting camp in Cannes, France.

She said: ''We hung out all the time. She's always an absolute hoot. At one point she asked if she could give me a tattoo. I was tempted ... She's the kind of girl everyone needs as a friend. She's got a real soft side too.''

Mollie dated 36-year-old David on and off for five years - during which time they also romanced other people - but things came to a permanent end in January this year after a blazing row, believed to be over their future together.

Her forthcoming debut solo single 'Back to You' details the relationship which she knew ''wasn't working''.
