Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Kimberley Walsh must win! (says Nicola Roberts)

Kimberley Walsh (Strictly Come Dancing)

Kimberley Walsh has to win Strictly Come Dancing 2012, the completely impartial Nicola Roberts has declared.

The Girls Aloud singer unsurprisingly backed her bandmate when speaking on It Takes Two last night.

Nicola reckons that being in the bottom two all those weeks ago has what's propelled Kimberley to the top.

"I think in a sense, she didn't need that, but it really shook her up," she told Zoe Ball. "I remember when she was in the bottom two and she was crying. She was so upset. She's thrown everything into it. I feel it spurred her on and she came back amazing."

Kimberley's transformation - or journey, to use the correct reality show terminology - has been quite an amazing one.

From being in the bottom two, the bendy beauty has scored two perfect 40s from the judges for the past two weeks.

For the final Kimberley has chosen to re-create her Waltz to When Doves Cry, and Nicola approves the selection.

"I just think she looks so elegant. I think the reasons she's chosen this is that her showdance is to Beyonce (Crazy In Love) and this shows a totally different side."

Campaigning for Kimberley to win, Nicola said: "Kimberley has to win and I believe in the nation to do the right thing and crown her the winner his weekend"

You heard the redhead, folks...
