Kimberley Walsh is proud to have been chosen to "fly" on this week's 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Kimberley Walsh will "fly" on this week's 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The Girls Aloud beauty will perform a steamy salsa with partner Pasha Kovalev and the routine will see her lifted above the dance floor on special wires.
Sources told The Sun newspaper that Kimberley is "proud" to be only the second celebrity dancer ever to attempt the stunt, following in the footsteps of 2010 contestant Ann Widdecombe.
While Kimberley is looking forward to her routine, she will be hoping none of her Girls Aloud bandmates come to watch as she recently admitted having people she knows in the audience makes her nervous.
The 30-year-old singer - who was recently joined by Nicola Roberts and Nadine Coyle in the audience - explained: "It's easier when no one's there - I focus more and I'm not waving at the audience! But it was nice that they were there and I'll definitely get Sarah [Harding] and Cheryl [Cole] to come when I'm ready.
"Last Saturday Cheryl was like, 'Shall I come, shall I come?' and I said, 'Give me a few more weeks to settle into it', so she watched it at home. I feel I need to focus on what I'm doing - it's hard to remember everything."
