Corrie's Kimberly Hart Simpson looking for love on Instagram after splitting from Celebs Go Dating boyfriend
CORONATION Street's Kimberly Hart-Simpson has revealed she is looking for love on Instagram after splitting from former stripper boyfriend she met on Celebs Go Dating.
The soap star, 33, fell head over heels for Shane Finlayson when they met on the show and moved in together just a week into their whirlwind relationship.
Kimberly – who played sex worker Nicky Wheatley in the ITV soap – has said she thinks Instagram may now be the best place to find romance.
The star recalled how she has seen some of her friends see success by private messaging people on the social media platform.
Kimberly, who is openly bisexual, revealed she is hoping to slip into DMs as a new way to date.
Speaking to The Mirror, the actress said: "Instagram is an amazing way of meeting people and it has become a bit like a dating app.
"If you see someone you like and want to know if they’re available, why not? They can only say ‘no’."
She went on to say that due to being an actor she is "used to getting rejected all the time".
Kimberly revealed she knows "quite a few people that have met on Instagram" and says she will now be "putting myself out there"
She said her favourite way to find a date is to "use my friends’ phone books and see who wants to go on a date now".
"I’d approach a guy or girl – anyone. If I genuinely like someone, I will put myself out there," she told the publication.
Shane, 32, and Kimberly broke up last month. The pair previously said on Fubar Radio that they had been "thrust together" because of lockdown.
Despite being on the dating show, she also said on the radio show at the time: "We've never even been on a date. I’ve never even been on a date with him!"
