Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh is proud of her womanly shape as it makes her more confident and helps her feel sexier.

The singer, who got to the final of Strictly Come Dancing 2012, is known for her stunning figure and although she finds it “hard” to see herself as a sex symbol, she does appreciate the fact that “womanly” shapes are more attractive than those of supermodels and believes that confidence is all in the mind.

She explained: “I find it hard to talk about myself being sexy, but I guess my shape is more womanly than the model look, and that’s sexier. I go with it; that’s how I am!

“But sexiness isn’t about how you look; it definitely comes from within. Yes, when you get dressed up you feel sexier, but it’s not like putting on a dress suddenly makes you feel sexy.

“You need to feel good about yourself first. And I do - physically I’m really fit, and I’m really happy.”

The 31-year-old beauty’s body is so popular that her bottom even has its own Twitter page called Kimberley’s Bum, which has nearly 3,000 followers, and her bandmate Nicola Roberts can’t resist a cheeky “squeeze”.

She joked: “It’s got a life of its own! Something about my bum was trending on Twitter recently and I was like, ‘Oh my god, you lot are crazy!’ Nicola loves to give my bum a squeeze too. She’s very toned and a completely different shape so she’s like, ‘It’s a sponge!’”
