The 'All Fired Up' singer has joked about an embarrassing incident involving g-strings and cheese strings.

The Saturdays star Mollie King says her granddad once accidentally bought thongs for her and her sisters.

The 'What About Us' singer recalled the embarrassing incident in a recent interview, admitting it was "so embarrassing" when he misheard their request for some Cheese Strings snacks.

"I have a funny story about Cheese Strings," Mollie said, while opening up to Popjustice. 'so my grandparents were looking after me and my sisters when we were younger and they went out to the supermarket and were like, 'OK girls, is there anything that you guys want for the fridge', and my sister was like 'Cheese Strings'.

"So my granddad, off he walks to Waitrose […] and he came back with these G-strings and we were like, 'Oh my god, we can't believe granddad has bought us G-strings!" Mollie revealed. "This is so embarrassing. I was starving as well, so he wasn't in the good books, poor granddad."
