Kimberly Hart-Simpson is celebrating turning 35 in style by donning her swimsuit and sipping on a glass of fizz. The Coronation Street star has been flooded with birthday wishes and compliments after sharing a new snap to Instagram on Saturday (May 28).
The actress, who returned to the cobbles as Nicky Wheatley earlier this year after making her debut in 2020, looked miles away from Weatherfield as she posed in a hot tub. Kimberley looked stunning in a white swimming costume while her blonde locks were tied into a ponytail.
Posing with a drink in her hand and sprawling views behind her, she captioned the post: "35," before sharing a look at her birthday getaway. It appears she has ditched the city to head for some relaxation and fun with her pals, including former Hollyoaks star Jessica Ellis, which saw them supping mimosas this morning while the living room had been covered in baloons.

Earlier this week Kimberley was quick to respond to fans of Coronation Street as she posed with her co-star for an on-set snap. The actress, who plays Nicky Wheatley in the ITV soap, shared a photo of herself and Daniel Osbourne actor Rob Mallard.
The pair were seen standing in Daniel's flat at the Salford-based set after her character made another on-screen exit. Last week Corrie fans saw Nicky express her true feelings for Daniel. They first met in 2020 when Nicky was working as a sex worker. Struggling over the death of his wife, Daniel ended up paying Nicky to wear her clothes.
After leaving for a better life with her daughter, Maisie, Nicky returned to Weatherfield earlier this year as she tried to get a job as a teaching assistant at the same school as Daniel. Seeking his help, the pair's friendship picked up where it left off, ruining Daniel and Daisy Midgley's relationship along the way.
Then, viewers saw Daniel give her and Maisie a place to live after her chance of a fresh start was pulled apart when Max Turner leaked photos of her from her past work. While they were getting along and living together fine, Nicky couldn't help but tell Daniel how she really felt and that they'd be good together.
However, Daniel was left having to let her down gently and revealed that he still has feelings for Daisy. Despite saying there were no hard feelings, Daniel returned home earlier this week to find Nicky packing her belongings after deciding to move out. But it left Corrie fans wondering if that was it for Nicky.
"It was a bit cramped anyway tbh," Kimberly shared alongside the snap of her and Rob posted to her Instagram page. One fan soon replied: " Aww I’m gutted!! Hope it’s not forever! Adios for now Nicky!" Another said: "I'm gonna miss you hope you go back love corrie with you in it."
But the actress was quick to reassure her fans. "You will see Nicky again," she replied to many of the comments.
