During the interview, the actress talked about a dress she designed for her best friend and former Hollyoaks star Jessica Ellis.

It was a rainbow-themed design which Jessica wore on the red carpet. Kimberly explained that it was a really important moment for her as she is also a part of the LGBTQ+ community.

She said: “It was during pride month as well, so it was really important that we were representing the LGBTQ community and I’m part of that as well.

“I represent the B so for me to do that was really, really important. This was sort of the discovery of when I was learning to sew, so she put a lot of trust in me to do that.”
