Kimberly, 39 years old, hopefully the maneuver will bring her luck on the ice like it did in the popular American girl group.

“My feet are my biggest weapon in life,” she said.

“Michael Jackson had a moon walk, but in Pussycat Dolls I created a standing walk and it has now become the language of dancers around the world.

“A lot of girls do that, boys do and tag me all the time and that’s one thing.

“So I’m grateful that I was able to create that and grateful to turn 40 and become a mother of three and still have the opportunity to stretch like that.”

Dancing On Ice’s costume department had to take into account Kimberly’s versatility and bold moves when designing her revealing outfits.

She appeared on Sunday’s opening show and the series continues tomorrow at 6:30pm.

To avoid wardrobe problems on national television when she did the split, they had to make sure she had special outfits.

Kimberly “I now have a good relationship with the wardrobe department, they fully understand and they make sure the garment is perfect.

“It was my worst nightmare, a wardrobe malfunction of any kind. I have always been very safe. I always have boy shorts that I can count on if the crotch of the outfit is a little too small.

“I would wear three bras – one to keep them covered, one to push them a bit, then the outfit on top.

“So if one bra comes off, I have to have two to keep it safe.”

Showing too much skin isn’t the only risk when performing on Dancing On Ice.

The show also tends to see contestants’ relationships fracture due to the stress of long days away from home to practice with professional skaters.

But Kimberly says that’s unlikely because her “beautiful” husband, model Brit Max Rogers, 39, is the only man for her.

She said: “I have a good one, he is like a Greek god. He is so talented at what he does and I am so inspired by my husband and he is so beautiful.

“So yeah, definitely won’t have to worry about the Dancing On Ice curse.”

In its 16-year history, more than ten contestants have seen their relationships fracturing – with some being the result of rumors they’ve grown too close with their pro skating partners. .

But Kimberly – who has daughters Willow, seven, and Maple, five, and two-year-old son Ford with Max – laughed off the idea that her head might have been filmed by her TV tape partner Mark Hanretty, 36 years old.

“We’ve got three kids, so none of us are going anywhere,” she said.

My husband is like a Greek god. He is very talented, beautiful, always supportive. So yeah, definitely don’t have to worry about the Dancing On Ice curse.

“Max gets nothing but support. My husband is one of my biggest fans and he knows my regimen when I want to do a good job like this and if anything, he helps Mark understand my process.

“I can get pretty quiet and serious when trying to make great things happen on the ice. And he really developed a lovely relationship with Mark and I contacted Kathy – Mark’s wife – and he has two kids.

“So there is a really nice synergy of support and understanding.

“When I showed up in front of the tape, sometimes I could barely sleep because of the kids and the school running and all this, so it was like, ‘Give me a second. And to have that understanding, to be on par with my partner, is really cool. ”

Packed lunches and early mornings seem a far cry from the showbiz career of the Missouri-born dancer.

After moving to LA, she became famous with the dance group Pussycat Dolls.

They stormed the charts worldwide with hits like Don’t Cha and Stickwitu, went on two world tours and sold over 15 million LPs and 40 million singles.

After the band’s hiatus in 2009, Kimberly became a judge on Sky One’s Got To Dance and won the Celebrity MasterChef in 2015.

Despite decades of dance training, she strongly denies she has a physical advantage on the ice and says her three emergency caesarean sections have cost them dearly.

Kimberly has told how she might have died giving birth to her eldest daughter Willow – when the baby was pulling her mother’s famous dance moves in the womb.

The term “too comfortable delivery” was coined to describe often well-off mothers who chose to have a cesarean section over a natural birth.

But Kimberly had no choice about how to give birth to her baby.

A wardrobe malfunction is my worst nightmare. I have always been very safe. And I’m so grateful to be 40 and a mother of three and still be able to do that.

She said: “I’ve heard the expression and I can’t think of anything harder than getting over being split in two.

“The first time you put your feet on the ground and stood up after that, you felt like you were going to fall out.”

“You feel your organs hovering around, like you don’t have the muscle to push that baby out and bring everything together.

“Crazy, my first child has been stuck in the breech the whole time, with one leg above his head.

“They didn’t even try to turn her around because she was really stuck in it. They said, ‘If this were 50 years ago, you’d die giving birth’.”

She continued: “I was devastated. I always dream about that moment and see what your body does and what we were born to do.

“So the recovery is crazy, between breastfeeding and emotions and other things. I hope we can raise awareness of what women really go through.

“My second baby, two weeks before due date, it flipped over (front leg) and didn’t come back. I tried to get them to do it manually, it was the worst feeling in the world.

“And with the third pregnancy, they said, ‘It’s too dangerous not to try, so we recommend a cesarean again’.”

Currently, Max is working as a babysitter for the lions while Kimberly trains on the ice.

In Sunday’s debut performance, she was only half a point behind the team’s former pro player. Brendan Cole, who topped the leaderboard with partner Vanessa Bauer.

Of the four judges, Olympic legend Jayne Torvill gave Kimberly the lowest score.

Michael Jackson had a moonwalk, but in Pussycat Dolls I created a standing walk and now it’s become the language of dancers around the world.

Kimberly said: “It was really cool to watch Brendan and Vanessa. I am always looking for her inspiration because the way she moves on the ice is amazing.

“I was prepared to not be at the top of the charts. Looking back and trying to process it, I’m so proud of how far I’ve come.

“Jayne gave me the lowest score and her face in that moment – ​​it was etched in my head.

“It was, ‘See more, the work is not done, you have to expand, you have to get over your stress’.

“And I said, ‘I see, the job isn’t done’.”

Her Dolls bandmate Ashley Roberts cheered her on on set but there was no sign of her fellow Nicole Scherzinger doll.

Last week, Jessica Sutta and Carmit Bachar, their bandmates, announced that they were made aware that the Dolls’ postponed 2020 reunion tour had been postponed altogether – after lead singer Nicole announced Post this on social media.

Kimberly said her “tears were as cold as ice” when she heard.

But she added: “For me it meant the whole world to have Ashley there in the studio, and I had a real conversation with Nicole a week before that. She cheered me on and excited me to shine.

“I could never give up hope in the Doll. We’ve accomplished so much together and you can’t deny that drive and sisterhood on stage.

“When fans had to get refunds and the tour was cancelled, it broke my heart, but I understand. I still hope our girls to some extent get together and do something great again at some point. “

Her main focus now is on Dancing On Ice and the death-defying header.

It was banned from figure skating, and the earliest it was tried on the show was week five.

Is Kimberly aiming to break that record?

She said with a laugh: “When it comes to things like that, I’m a game. I like big challenges and take the plunge into things that scare me. So yeah, honestly, I’ll go for it. “

  • Dancing On Ice will air on ITV at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow.
