Frankie Sandford is a "gay idol".

The Saturdays singer is delighted she has such a wide variety of fans, adding she and her boyfriend, McFly bassist Dougie Poynter, and lucky to be so popular.

She told Britain's Heat magazine: "I do seem to attract gay people. I think one of my number one fans is gay. Lots of gay guys like Dougie too... We're like a gay idol couple!"

Frankie added she and Dougie - who have been dating for around eight months - are blissfully happy together, and are so comfortable with each other they have even shared their celebrity crushes.

She said: "He's the sweetest guy I know. He always goes out of his way to make sure I'm happy, and I think that's the most important, romantic thing.

"I have a crush on Robert Pattinson from 'Twilight', but Dougie knows about that, so it's totally fine!"
