Why did Kimberley Walsh get tested for COVID?

Ahead of its run, Kimberley took to Instagram to update followers on the strict measures currently in place.

Filming herself as she walked into the theatre, she said: “We have officially been told we can open Sleepless the musical on the 25 August. I’m just walking through the door.

Kimberley was tested by a worker in the foyer of the theatre, revealing the procedure was “quick and painless”.

She continued: “We get a COVID test as soon as we arrive at the theatre then we put our masks back on and social distance until we get out results.

“It’s working brilliantly.”

She concluded the safety briefing by giving fans a tour of the toilet, proving there’s more than enough room to social distance.

Will Kimberley Walsh return to Girls Aloud?

Back in March, Kimberley admitted that while the band does have an upcoming anniversary, any kind of reunion is still “a long way off”.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: “Everybody is busy at the moment but I have a lot of love for all the girls. I’m proud of all of them.”

The musical star also went on to reveal she was back in touch with her former band member Nadine Coyle.

Kimberley and Nadine had not spoken to each other since 2013, the Mirror reported, amid rumours of a massive falling out.
