“I have such fond and happy memories of working in the wardrobe behind the scenes on costumes and on set with Regal Entertainments that it will feel like a homecoming.

“I’m happy to see all those nice, friendly faces again.”

It’s something of a homecoming for the actress, who previously worked as a seamstress in the Theater Royal’s costume department.

“It’s going to feel a little strange being up front on stage and looking at the audience instead of taking care of all these incredibly stunning costumes – but now I’m going to wear them, so it’s the best of both worlds,” she added added.

“Performing is my passion, but I also love fashion.

“I’m a big believer in vintage clothing and garment reuse. Playing Cinderella is going to be quite an experience and I can’t wait.”

Cinderella will be on view at St Helens Theater Royal from Saturday 3rd December 2022 to Sunday 8th January 2023.

Kimberly recently cleared things up about her stay with Corrie.

She shared on Instagram: “Okkkk let’s answer this because it’s heavy in the inbox.

“So it’s not about leaving Corrie. It’s more like I came back for a story that’s finished for now.

“If you watched Friday’s episode, you’ll see there wasn’t a big exit scene, so you never know what the future holds, but what I do know is this…”

She added: “I owe so much to Corrie and I absolutely love it there – the people – the vibe – the street.

“Life unfolds in chapters – and I’m already looking forward to the next part.”
