Coronation Street star Kimberly Hart-Simpson in Three Lions bikini top at Pride

Corrie star Kimberly Hart-Simpson stunned as she enjoyed Manchester Pride wearing an England football crest bikini.

The blonde beauty, 35, struck a pose in the fetching outfit as she paired the bikini top which was a recycled top with a pair of silver jogging bottoms she revealed were bought from the British Heart Foundation. She plaited her long hair at the back and held it aloft as she was snapped by onlookers.

The actress, who plays Nicky Wheatley on the popular ITV soap, shared the shots with her 144,000 Instagram followers alongside the caption: "Not too keen on footie, but very keen on women. Happy Pride."

As well as the posing pics, Kimberly was also seen downing drinks with pals before provocatively dancing to Moloko's Bring It Back.

Her upload was met with an abundance of positive comments from her followers, including Wayne Lineker who wrote: "Spicy and nicey." Kimberly responded by simply writing: "bro," along with a number of love heart emojis.

Jack James Ryan, who plays Jacob Hay on the cobbled streets of Weatherfield, also complimented his co-star by gushing: "Far too peng." Again, Kimberly made sure to reply to her pal, writing: "@jackjamesryan my boyyyyyy," followed by two raising hands emojis.

Other fans also showered the star with praise with one user writing: "Stunning Kimberly." A second added: "Can certainly rock the sporty look," while a third - and many others - said: "Beautiful."

Kimberly appeared on Celebs Go Dating in 2021 and announced at the time she is pansexual, meaning she is not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity. The term, which can also be called omnisexual, refers to the sexual, romantic or emotional attraction someone has towards people.

Speaking to the Mirror at the time, the actress said: "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."

Elsewhere at Manchester Pride, Blue's Duncan James looked worlds away from his usual stage persona as he performed at Manchester Pride in drag this weekend, after finally admitted he feels comfortable in his own skin.

The singer, 44, went all out for the occasion as he slipped into suspenders and a glittering leather costume complete with red garter. He donned a huge bouffant wig, false eyelashes and a red lip as he brilliantly transformed into his drag alter-ego.
