As well as politics, Kimberly’s latest projects promises to offer steamy scenes, tales of murder, and plenty of scandal.

The storyline follows the protagonist Peter George [Clive Mantle] as he battles through an election campaign.   

Peter claims he can save British politics by offering leadership devoid of ‘sleaze and spin’ and is welcomed as a hero by the public.

But when a scandalous secret threatens to bring Peter’s political career tumbling down, the national hero will do anything to save his own skin.

The new project comes after Kimberly’s reunion with the rest of The Pussycat Dolls was pushed back during the coronavirus pandemic. 

After releasing their first song in ten years – React – in 2020, the girl band were set to go on tour before COVID-19 struck. 

The Pussycat Dolls – consisting of Ashley, Nicole Scherzinger, Kimberly Wyatt, Carmit Bachar and Jessica Sutta – announced their music comeback back in 2019.

But the reunion tour is now scheduled for later this month after COVID-19 caused the closure of stadiums and theatres.

Kimberly revealed earlier this year how her cystic acne almost lost her a place in the girl group. 

The singer admitted that she almost didn’t have that taste of fame after feeling under immense pressure to get her skin condition under control. 

Speaking to new! magazine, the singer opened up about the ‘pressure’ to look good in the band as well as how her body has changed after becoming a mother of three.

When asked if she felt under pressure to look a certain way, she responded: ‘Massively, massively. I had horrible cystic acne when I first became a Doll and it almost cost me my place in the group!’

She explained: ‘The pressure to get rid of it was intense, but it also caused more stress, which made me break out,’

Kimberly went on to say that as a dancer, it was important for her to establish a ‘good relationship’ with food and fitness.’ 

The Don’t’ Cha hitmaker went on to add that during her earlier days in the band she had to constantly ‘fight my battles with the way I look’ and keep in certain shape.

However, these days, instead of focusing on her six-pack and waistline, Kimberly says she prefers to concentrate on her body’s ability and being the best Pussycat Doll she can be, adding that ‘stamina’ and ‘flexibility’ is important.

Meanwhile, the star discussed her changing body and accepting her physique after welcoming three children.

Kimberly shares children Willow, six, Maple Lyla, three and one-year-old Ford with husband Max Rogers. 

Sharing if she thinks her body has changed much she having kids, she said: ‘Yes, especially after three kids – and I’m growing older. I’m happy to embrace a whole new body and champion that body.’

She added that while she still has ‘pressure’ to have an hourglass shape with ripped abs, she’s ultimately ‘happy’ with ‘who I am’.
