Former Coronation Street actress Kimberley Hart-Simpson has come out as pansexual ahead of her appearance on Celebs Go Dating.

The soap star will be looking for love on the latest series of the E4 show, which hits our screens next week (Monday 25 January), alongside fellow famous faces Chloe Ferry, Curtis Pritchard, Joey Essex, Sophie Hermann, Karim Zeroual, Wayne Lineker and Tom Zanetti.

Although she previously came out as bisexual, Kimberley has revealed she now identifies as pansexual and isn’t bothered about gender when it comes to picking a partner.

She explained, “I have dated people who are male, female, transgender… Gender is completely irrelevant to me.

“We’re all on different spectrums. There are many qualities about me I would deem just as much male as female. It’s about the person, not what sex they were born. I just fancy everybody.”

Kimberley also admitted that she had struggled with her sexuality until she began experimenting while studying at drama school.

The fall of Stephen Bear

After a few episodes of Stephen Bear acting as Stephen Bear-ish as it's possible to act, Nadia and Eden decided they'd had enough and chucked him out the agency. Good riddance.

She told the Mirror, “I’d have a couple of drinks at night and change my Tinder search profile to ‘both’.

“When I woke up the next day, I’d think, ‘OMG, I hope no one I know has seen me’. Then I realised if they had, it would mean they were gay too.

“It clicked, and I realised I’m surrounded by non-judgmental people and a loving family supporting me.”

Curtis’ followers took to the comments section to speculate about a potential romance, with one asking, “Are they together?”

Another probed, “Wait… you’re dating Corrie girl?”
