Strictly Come Dancing contestant Kimberley Walsh reveals she's been coached by Cheryl Cole
Kimberley Walsh has revealed that she's been coached by Cheryl Cole for her upcoming stint on Strictly Come Dancing.
The 30-year-old, who will be seen on the hit BBC talent show for the first time tonight, told The Sun that her Girls Aloud bandmate has been a huge help when it comes to brushing up on her dance moves:
“Cheryl’s never been asked to do Strictly but she wouldn’t be allowed — she’s too good.
“She has been helping me with some steps. I asked her to show me an absolutely basic waltz, but even then I forgot after about five minutes.
“If I’m struggling with my routines she’ll be able to give me some SOS lessons.”
The Shrek The Musical star, who was encouraged by Cole and Nicola Roberts to join the show, admitted she feels a bit more pressure because of her on-stage experience:
“I’ve not had much technical training. If you tell me a step I can copy it.
“But I expected people to say ‘Oh, she dances already’. It does put more pressure on me and will make things tougher.
“I need to make sure every routine is technically tight because that’s what people expect. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
