Frankie is NOT dating Aston.

Frankie Sandford and Mollie KingDon’t worry boys, Saturdays star Frankie Sandford is still young, free and single!

I got to the bottom of rumors that the sexy singer has been shacked up with JLS wee-man Aston Merrygold (pictured top right) by asking the lady herself to spell out the truth.

Not only did she say reports of her “union” with hunky Aston are a load of cobblers, she also told me of her sadness following her split with McFly dish Dougie Poynter (right).

Frankie told me at the Lee Jeans launch party this week: “It’s inevitable that Aston and me do get pictured together because Rochelle is dating Marvin from JLS.

“It’s already ­happened with all this stuff about us dating – it’s false. It’s crap. And the stuff about me and Calum Best was crap too.

“Calum literally sent me a Tweet and that’s where that story came from.

“He’s a nice guy but I’m not going there… I’m not stupid! I’m just friends with Aston – he’s a nice guy. It can be really annoying if you’re falsely linked to other people.”

Frankie was clearly in the mood to talk and she admitted that she’s yet to get over McFly boy Dougie Poynter after their split last month.

“I didn’t think anyone would care about Dougie and I splitting up,” she revealed. “I was so surprised by the reaction to it. We are staying good friends.

“I know that’s what everyone says but I don’t bulls**t. We need time apart and that’s what we’re doing now. I needed to get away from everything so that’s why I took myself off Twitter and had a holiday.

“It’s hard enough splitting up with someone but when you’re in the public eye it’s so much harder. I had no idea and I’m learning about it. If you split up with your boyfriend, you wouldn’t then see him ­pictured out with other girls in the paper.

“He’s going to start dating other girls, and I’m fine with it, but I don’t want to see it and learn about it in the papers. It’s going to be hard.”

Frankie, currently in the studio with the rest of the Saturdays recording new material for a repackaged summer version of their album Wordshaker, sounds desperado for a relationship of some kind.

She told me: “I haven’t been out on any dates since we split.

“But I really want to be taken out on a date! I’m not good at the whole dating scene and I just want a boyfriend. But I don’t go out on a date for the sake of it.

“First I need there to be a spark and hint that it might turn into a relationship.”
