Pansexuality refers to those who are not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.

Kimberly said: “I have dated people who are male, female, transgender…Gender is completely irrelevant to me.

“It’s about the person, not what sex they were born. I just fancy everybody,” she continued to The Mirror.

The star fancies Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon, and TV hosts Reggie Yates and Jeff Brazier.

Speaking on the reason for her joining the programme, she said: “I’ve joined the agency because I’m 33, I still live with my mum and don’t know why I’m still single.

“I’ve been putting myself out there, and joined pretty much every dating app going, so not sure what I’m doing wrong.

“[I’m] hoping Anna [Williamson] and Paul [Carrick Brunson] will help me figure that out and find my perfect match [whatever gender].”

Kimberly has previously appeared in Hollyoaks and recently exited Coronation Street.

Her character Nicky left the cobbles after Daniel Osbourne [played by Rob Mallard] helped her pay off her debts so she could have a new life by the sea with her daughter.

However, a source told The Sun: “Nicky’s proved really popular with viewers and the bosses absolutely love Kimberly.

“The character has gone off for the storyline to develop but the door is very much open for her return.”
