Kimberly Hart-Simpson has announced she is pansexual ahead of her appearance on Celebs Go Dating.

The former Coronation Street actress, who played Nicky Wheatley, previously revealed that she was bisexual while showing her support for the LGBTQ+ community last summer.

Kimberly, 33, has now said she is not fussed about what gender her future partner might be as she appears on the E4 dating show.

"I have dated people who are male, female, transgender…” she told the Mirror. "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."

Kimberly, who lives with her mum, got her Corrie break after a stint in Hollyoaks.

Her performance as sex worker Nicky helped client Daniel Osborne come to terms with his wife's death.

She left the soap in September but the door is open for her to return.

In the meantime, though, Kimberly is on the lookout for a soulmate. "I'm hitting career milestones, but nothing quite beats love," she said.

Kimberly stars in the new series of Celebs Go Dating  which sees matchmaker Paul C Brunson and life coach Anna Williamson help a bunch of celebrities tackle their own issues when it comes to finding love.

This series includes Made in Chelsea’s Sophie Hermann, Strictly star Karim Zeroual, Love Island's Curtis Pritchard and Geordie Shore's Chloe Ferry as they move into a Surrey mansion before a series of dates.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary pansexual means: not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.

Also known as omnisexual, it refers to the sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people.

Celebs Go Dating starts on E4, Monday January 25 at 9pm.
