Mollie King's grandparents have shown her true love can last.

The Saturdays singer is currently single and while she has had her heart broken in the past, she still believes in love because her grandma and grandad are happy together despite being together for years.

She said: ''I've become more cynical about finding the fairy tale as I've grown up, I admit. But then I think about my grandparents, who are my favourite couple in the whole world. They're 87 or something, and I've never seen a couple more in love.

''They drive each other up the wall but the way my grandad looks at my granny is enough to tell me that there is someone out there for everyone, and that love can last.''

Mollie's parents split up when she was eight but she is pleased they can put their problems behind them and be together as a family on special days.

She told Cosmopolitan magazine: ''Everyone thinks I must come from the perfect family where we all just bake cakes, because I'm so upbeat and positive about love. But I'm not; my parents split when I was eight. I think it affected my sisters - who were 10 and 12 at the time - more. I was too young to understand it, and to be honest, I can't really remember my parents being together, which is sad.

''But what I love is that even though my mum is with someone else, for birthdays and Christmas we all still spend the day together. They are my favourite days of the year by far.''
