Kimberley Walsh is following in the fashionable footsteps of her Girls Aloud bandmate Cheryl Cole and releasing her own album.

Kimberley, who's currently rocking the dancefloor on Strictly Come Dancing, has announced that she'll embark on a solo music career, with her debut album 'Centre Stage' being released in February.

How exciting!

The 30-year-old has made no secret of the fact that she loves musicals, so her album will consist of a bunch of West End hits.

She says: "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.

"The melodies in so many musical songs are so brilliant I knew we could create something special by experimenting with the production and I really feel like we've come up with some interesting takes on classic songs."

This will make her one busy bee in 2013, as she'll also be touring for Girls Aloud's ten-year reunion, alongside Cheryl, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Nadine Coyle.

She adds: "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." 

We can't wait to hear Centre Stage! RM
