Coronation Street Star Kimberly Hart-Simpson Says Gender Is Irrelevant To Her When Dating
Coronation Street star Kimberly Hart-Simpson has opened up about her sexuality - revealing that gender is 'irrelevant' to her.
The 33-year-old actor spoke openly about who she is happy to meet ahead of her Celebs Go Dating appearance.
Chatting about who she was willing to date on the E4 show, 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."
This comes after Kimberly admitted she struggled with her sexual identity before going to London's Italia Conti drama school.
She explained: "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."

After a conversation with a gay friend, Kimberly said: "It clicked, and I realised I'm surrounded by non-judgmental people and a loving family supporting me."
Joining Kimberly on the show will be Chloe Ferry, Curtis Pritchard, Karim Zeroual, Sophie Hermann, Tom Zanetti and Wayne Lineker. Joey Essex will also return for his third stint on the show.
Vivienne Molokwu, Commissioning Editor, Channel 4 said: "Dating has been pretty dire in 2020 and the love lives of lots of us have been on ice, so for 2021 we want to help heat things up for our single celebs by supercharging their search for the one.
"With our celebs surrounded by potential matches 24/7 who knows whether we'll get love, lust or a good dose of both - one things for sure - it'll be unmissable."
Channel 4 have ensured that strict Covid-19 protocol and industry guidelines have been adhered to throughout filming in order to maintain a safe working environment.
Celebs Go Dating will return to E4 on 25 January at 9pm.
