Frankie Sandford thinks it is "romantic" that her boyfriend finds time to see her.

The Saturdays singer has been dated soccer star Wayne Bridge for nine months and admits their busy schedules mean it can be difficult to spend quality time together.

She said: "It's going really well. We're trying to manage us in between my work and his training, so the fact he makes time to see me is what I consider romantic."

Frankie admits she feels "embarrassed" to be dating a soccer star because she hates to be thought of as a 'WAG', the nickname for the wife or girlfriend of a soccer player.

She said: "If people ask me what my boyfriend does and I say he's a footballer, I still get embarrassed.

"I can't help it, because I know what people are thinking. Technically I am a WAG, because I'm Wayne's girlfriend - but I have a job."

The 'All Fired Up' singer split from McFly bassist Dougie Poynter last year but she insists she doesn't compare her current and past relationships.

She told LOOK magazine: "I see them as totally different. The main thing I've learned is that you never know what's around the corner."
