Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Kimberley Walsh enjoying busy schedule

Kimberley Walsh (Strictly Come Dancing)

Kimberley Walsh has admitted she's loving her busy Strictly Come Dancing schedule, even if it is leaving her with little personal time!

The singer has had a hectic two weeks training for Strictly and doing her day job as Girls Aloud.

The girl group released their new single this week, with Kimberley performing with her bandmates on Children In Need, Strictly itself and the Royal Variety Show.

It's left Kimberley with very few hours in rehearsals, logging only 12 hours of official training this week, the fewest of the remaining the celebs.

In order to get in the extra hours, the 31-year-old has been taking pro partner Pasha with her to practice at every free moment.

Kimberley told the Daily Mirror today: “I have been really busy,” she admitted. “Last week, I was rehearsing with the girls then rehearsing for Strictly, so I was dancing from 8am until 10pm.

“It was full-on. I get through it with Berocca, coffee and willpower.

“But I’m really enjoying everything I am doing, so I take each day as it comes and put as much work in to each thing as I can.

“Once I’m with the girls I focus on that and when I’m with Pasha I focus on Strictly – and it seems to be working so far.”

The Bradford beauty, who scored an impressive 34 points on last night's show, insisted she was also "on top" of her injured knee and hip.

She said: “I’m on top of the injuries. I climbed Kilimanjaro and did a tour a week later, so I think I can cope. I have faith in my body to get me through.”

Meanwhile, despite all the effort, Girls Aloud are set to miss out on the number one spot tonight.

However Kimberley insisted: “I’d be gutted if we didn’t sell a lot of singles for Children in Need, but we have."
