'I love the girls': Former Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh chats to HELLO! Online

HELLO! Online enjoyed an intimate dinner with former Girls Aloud member Kimberley Walsh on Monday night to launch her edit of the new Very.co.uk collection.

"I loved picking my edit," said the blonde beauty, who was showing off her stunning hourglass curves in a bodycon purple dress.

"I wanted to pick something for everyone. I know a lot of different shaped women, so I've tried to think about them."


Chatting to us about her rise to fame, after appearing in Popstars: The Rivals where her band Girls Aloud was formed over 10 years ago, Kimberley revealed that she thinks it's "crazy".

"I was out the other night with Cheryl [Cole] and Nicola [Roberts]," she said, "and we just looked at each other while we were doing our make´-up in the bathroom and said we just can't believe it's turned out like this.

"But it's fate," she added. "I think we were meant to be together."

She also discussed the bond between her and her former bandmates. "I love the girls. We've stayed so close and we see each other all the time," she said.

"It's a little bit more difficult with Nadine being in L.A., especially now that she's pregnant and will soon find flying quite difficult, but we all really do love and support each other."

Speaking about her plans for the future, Kimberley, who enjoyed great success for her role in Shrek the Musical, revealed that musical theatre is still on her radar.

"I really love it," she said. "It can feel a lot more intimate and personal than performing in Wembley or a huge arena. "Plus, I was trained in singing, acting and dancing so it's amazing to be able to use the three."

Kimberley's 23-piece edit combines this season's key trends and includes a monochrome lace pencil skirt, piped blouses, an array of floral prints and bright block, body con dresses.

The collection is available online now at Very.co.uk.
