Strictly Come Dancing's Kimberley Walsh talks debut solo album

Kimberley Walsh (Strictly Come Dancing 2012)

Strictly Come Dancing’s Kimberley Walsh has been busy recording her debut solo album in between training, and here’s a behind the scenes look!

With two dances to learn this week and the pressure building as we head towards the final, we’re really not sure where Kimberley finds all the time.

However having scored a perfect 40 points from the judges last week it’s clear that all the work isn’t hurting her dancing.

Kimberley’s debut solo album, called Centre Stage, will feature covers of famous musical tracks and will be released on February 3rd on Decca Records

Kimberley said: “I’ve always loved musical theatre and doing Shrek! The Musical definitely re-ignited the passion in me.

“I really wanted to share the love I have for musical theatre by taking some classic songs and completely reinventing them.”

Speaking about her record in the behind the scenes video below, Kimberley continues: “We’ve definitely got a concept for the album and all the artwork. It’s that whole story of a performer and all the stories you have to go through to get to that point of being on the stage.

“There’s a lot going on right now but I am loving every minute and can’t wait for people to hear these songs I’ve recorded.”
