Girls Aloud star Kimberley eyes West End career

Girls Aloud [I]singer[/I] Kimberley Walsh has admitted that she would consider getting into musicals whenever the band breaks up.

The 26-year-old singer, who lands a part in the West End hit Les Miserables in new ITV2 series The Passions Of… Girls Aloud, said she would ‘definitely enjoy’ a full-time career on the stage.

Kimberley said: “At the moment, my heart’s completely in Girls Aloud and I think we’re all seeing it as ‘we’ll just take the journey as far as it will go’ – but obviously it’s going to end at some point and we’re all going to want to try and carry on working and I think that’s definitely something that I’d really enjoy doing.”

But she added that her brief stint in Les Miserables for the TV show had made her realise how tough it is to star in musicals.

“They do eight shows a week, they only have one day off and some days they do more than one show and it’s a three-hour long show.

“It’s not an easy job at all – but I think if you love something enough you really enjoy it.”

The Passions Of… Girls Aloud, which starts on ITV2 on March 14, also sees Nicola Roberts launch a make-up range, Sarah Harding play polo and Cheryl Cole learn street dance.
