ITV Corrie's Nicky hailed an 'inspiration' as she looks stunning in £3 charity shop dress

By Katie Fitzpatrick

Coronation Street favourite Kimberly Hart-Simpson has wowed fans with her latest dazzling look while sending out an important message. Kimberly, who plays the soap's Nicky Wheatley looked stunning in a daring see-through effect gown.

The soap star posed in her black and red embroidered number which bought from the British Heart Foundation for a bargain £3, and she said she felt 'a million dollars.' The praise came pouring in as the actor shared an 'inspirational' Instagram post about snapping up second hand clothing.

"They (society) are going to try their best to make you believe the price of a persons outfit is a direct reflection of their success," she wrote. "Someone in designer gear is surely doing better than someone in second hand?"

And she added: "Let me tell you I have met a few p****s in Prada and some of the most inspiring, well rounded and driven humans in hand me downs. People with a social media following will post their designer items (good for them and no shade) but forget accountability when it comes to the impression that leaves on their followers who want to be just like them.

"What does that do to someone’s mental health when they feel worlds apart? The point is this , these summer events coming up are going to put strain on peoples image, the price of the product does not amount to the value of the human. Your heart is the asset."

And she added: "Dress £3 but I feel a million dollars!" Followers rushed to applaud Kimberly, whose character returned to the famous Corrie cobbles in March to cause trouble for her former love interest Daniel Osbourne, played by Rob Mallard.

Jack James Ryan, who plays Jacob Hay in Corrie, said with a flame emoji: "She never misses folks." Hollyoaks star Kirsty-Leigh Porter enthused: "I LOVE YOU!" And former Love Island star Shaughna Phillips said: "An angel in human form."

kieranbishop__applauded: "The realist!!!" 70shousemanchester said: "I love this second hand doesn't have to be second rate" and daneenglish11 praised: "Keep doing you @kimberly_h_s I think your an absolute inspiration."

On Tuesday night Kimberly turned heads in an elegant black gown on the red carpet at the Pride of Manchester Awards. The actress and seamstress, who is known for reworking and upcycling charity shop bargains into stunning outfits, revealed that her dress £15 from the British Heart Foundation. And she teamed the dress with gloves she had also snapped up from the charity shop for £3.

Kimberly's character Nicky returned to Weatherfield after leaving to start a new life in September 2020 to find Daniel had found a new romance with Rovers Return barmaid Daisy Midgeley. Daisy was dismayed to learn that Nicky and her man would be working together at Weatherfield High.

Daisy was later gobsmacked to find out that teaching assistant Nicky was a former sex worker who comforted teacher Daniel following the death of his late wife Sinead. Daniel's pupil Max leaked videos and pictures from Nicky's past life around school after he overheard Daniel and Daisy arguing but Daisy got the blame.
