Corrie star mistaken for Jesy Nelson after hair transformation

Coronation Street’s Kimberly Hart-Simpson was mistaken for Jesy Nelson after revealing her new hair transformation.

The actress – who portrayed Nicky Wheatley in the ITV soap – unveiled her new brunette hairstyle in a post on social media earlier this week.

While many fans dished out praise over Kimberly’s new look, several others explained that – at first – they’d mistaken the star for the Little Mix singer.

‘Colour really suits you, beautiful,’ added one social media user, before adding: ‘Did anyone else think is was Jesy Nelson?’

‘I really thought you were Jesy,” added another fan.

‘Giving me @jesynelson vibes’, said one, while one more exclaimed: ‘I really thought you were Jessy from little mix’.

Kimberly portrayed Nicky in Coronation Street last year. Nicky was a sex worker, who Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) befriended in the wake of Sinead Tinker’s (Katie McGlynn) death.

Kimberly opened up about her sexuality earlier this year, revealing that she is pansexual.

She told The Mirror: ‘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.

‘I’d have a couple of drinks at night and change my Tinder search profile to “both”.

‘When I woke up the next day, I’d think: “OMG, I hope no one I know has seen me”. Then I realised if they had, it would mean they were gay too.

‘It clicked, and I realised I’m surrounded by non-judgmental people and a loving family supporting me.’
