The 29-year-old British star shot to fame in pop group Girls Aloud, alongside Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Nadine Coyle.
Kimberley loves the festive season, so has been adorning her home with decorations to get her in the holiday mood. The talented star prefers sticking to customary Christmas colours, rather than attempting anything too modern.
“Christmas is just around the corner and I’m so excited! My flat looks like Santa’s grotto as I’ve put up all the decorations,” she wrote in the British edition of OK! magazine.
“I go for traditional colours of red, green and gold and I decorate everywhere. I think it looks a bit try-hard when people match their decorations to their colour scheme – that’s not what Christmas is about!”
The gorgeous star’s sisters helped her with the decorating as her boyfriend Justin Scott was away working. Kimberley thinks it’s probably for the best Justin wasn’t present as he isn’t a fan of the festive carols she likes to play to get in the yuletide spirit.
“Justin was probably glad he wasn’t there, he always tries to change the music after the third repeat of Silent Night!” she laughed.
Kimberley Walsh & Ne-Yo – Hate That I Love You – One Night Stand [10.12.10]
Last night, we saw Kimberley Walsh join Ne-Yo on his show ‘One Night Stand’ to sing a duet with him called ‘Hate That I Love You’.
If you missed it, watch it above on our video site, or download the hires on the forum thanks to snoop. We also have the audio and some HQ pictures from the performance on the links below.
The duo, who appeared on the show last year, told Metro that they have their own unique reason for disliking the ‘Promise This’ singer.
“We don’t like Cheryl Cole because she’s too hot,” John Grimes admitted. “She makes all the other girls not look as hot.
“Simon Cowell always sits there looking at her, like, ‘Yeah, I’ve got a date’. She’s like his mascot.”
The twins also confessed that they don’t believe that their former mentor Louis Walsh does not get on with Cole.
“I think they’re both friends,” they said. “But they both really want to win.”
Speaking in this week’s issue of the magazine, on UK newsstands now and available digitally worldwide, the musician confirmed the collaboration but did not say when the songs would see the light of day.
“She’s incredibly talented, she wrote a lot of melodies and lyrics and stuff,” he said. “I’ve done a lot of this kind of thing with different people and it’s been most enjoyable to work with her.”
Metronomy are due to release their new album ‘The English Riviera’ in spring 2011.
Here is The X Factor Finalist’s Press Conference 2010 in full.

CHERYL Cole reckons Dannii Minogue’s X Factor 2010 multi-tasking has been outstanding.
Speaking at the X Factor 2010 press conference this afternoon, Cheryl Cole said she admired Dannii Minogue hugely for combining being a new mum with being a judge.
She said: “I’ve got a huge amount of admiration this year for Dannii just having a baby.
“She’s literally breast feeding one second and on set the next and I think she looks absolutely incredible and she is a gorgeous woman and I admire her a lot.”
An embarrassed Dannii said she wished she had a button so she could disappear under the table but added that she’s had a great time being a judge and new mum to Ethan.
She said: “It has been a real laugh and yep the baby is backstage the whole time.”

It looks like Kimberley Walsh is about to step into the style void left by her Girls Aloud band mate Cheryl Cole if the X Factor takes Cheryl to the States. Like Cheryl, Kimberley has been trying to establish herself as a TV presenter since Girls Aloud announced they were on a break last year.
And also like Cheryl, who works with L’Oreal Elnett hairspray, luscious locked Kimberley is working with the Schwarzkopf Supersoft haircare range on their new shampoos.
When Very met Kimberley at the British Fashon Awards, after we had complimented her outfit she revealed that we’re going to see a lot more of her on the TV screen in 2011.
But as well as the light-hearted pop stuff, Kim has planned a couple of serious documentaries.
“I love learning new things, so if I can combine that with work I’m really happy,” the hard-working pop star told us.
Kimberley also revealed she would be supporting Cheryl every step of the way and would be attending the X Factor final, hopefully to see Cheryl achieve victory with her girl contestants.
“I love both Rebecca Ferguson and Cher Lloyd,” Kim admitted.
And talking of love, Kimberley has been with her boyband boyfriend Justin Scott for six years and there are rumours he will pop the question at Christmas.
Hopefully 2011 will be the year for a Girls Aloud wedding or three, as the girls’ band mate Sarah Harding is also settled with her DJ boyfriend Tom Crane and Nadine Coyle is engaged to American footballer Jason Bell.
