Kimberley Walsh reckons a musical featuring Girls Aloud's songs would be an "amazing" idea.

With a Spice Girls musical already in the pipeline, the 29-year-old thinks her own band could follow suit.

Kimberley, currently starring as Princess Fiona in Shrek the Musical, said: "I do think Girls Aloud the musical would be pretty amazing because the songs really lend themselves to a big extravaganza."

The singer joined Shrek at Theatre Royal Drury Lane earlier this month after taking over from Amanda Holden.

Kimberley said: "Amanda sent me a gorgeous bunch of flowers and champagne for the first night, which was really nice of her.

"And she decorated the dressing room all lilac and pink like a princess tower. She just enjoyed it so much and just told me to have an amazing time."

The show sees Kimberley don a fat suit and green ogre make-up, as well entertain the audience with a series of burps and farts.

"Whatever audience you've got farting will always work - especially mine. I get wolf whistles sometimes for a fart." she said.

She also has to speak in an American accent, which impressed Canadian singer Michel Buble on his visit to the show.

"Michael Buble thought it was good. He said 'I can't believe you're not American'," she revealed.
