WATCH: Kimberley Walsh Starts Training In First 'Strictly Come Dancing' Rehearsal


Girls Aloud siren Kimberley Walsh is seen rehearsing with professional partner Pasha Kovalev in new footage from Strictly Come Dancing.

The star, who is considered a frontrunner to reach the final on this year's series, is revealed to be performing the Cha Cha Cha in her first week.

The live shows for the contest's tenth season kick off on October 6, with half of the celebrities taking to the floor and one facing elimination.

The other half will compete the following week.

Last year Kovalev danced with Waterloo Road star Chelsee Healey, and finished in second place behind Harry Judd and Aliona Vilani.

Walsh recently told Digital Spy that she was "embarrassed" when bandmates Cheryl Cole and Nicola Roberts joked about her "juicy ass" on Twitter during the series launch.

The three popstars, along with Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle, are expected to reform Girls Aloud in November.
