Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Kimberley Walsh admits Girls Aloud tour is distracting

Kimberley Walsh (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Kimberley Walsh has confessed that Girls Aloud's upcoming tour has been a bit distracting for her.

The group announced last week that they would be going on a comeback arena tour next year, following a new album this month.

The singer confessed to the Daily Mirror that she's having to focus a lot on Strictly in a bid to make it to the final in December.

"I don't know if I'm going to win, I'm just trying to get through each week," she said. "I've got so much going on with the girls that I need to focus on each week and do the best that I can."

Kimberley wowed the judges at the weekend with a saucy salsa, and thanked her boyfriend Justin Scott for her speedy recovery from a bad knee injury.

She said: "My boyfriend looked after me so well. He had ice packs at the ready and was feeding me up. He's quite a good dancer as well. He should be on the show."

Kimberley added: "I'm on lots of painkillers when I need them. It is quite sore.

"I've been dancing for six weeks now and my body is feeling it more. It is tough but you've got to try and improve every week."
