Jayne Dawson: Fresh-faced Kimberley could educate Yorkshire’s teens
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 3 years
Just look at this picture of Kimberley Walsh. Isn’t she gorgeous? All pouty and dewy skinned and fresh-faced and young looking. You may or may not have noticed but she is going commando, so to speak. Okay it’s not her underwear, but to see Kimberley without cosmetic enhancement is just as headline-grabbing. Kimberley is revealing her real, bare, as-God-intended face, devoid of makeup, and she is one of a group of female celebrities who are doing the same thing to help raise cash for Children in Need. Standing blusher-free beside her in the campaign are choreographer Arlene Phillips, presenter Alex Jones, actress Sheridan Smith and former rock ‘n’ roll chick Jo Wood. The idea is that these leading ladies, by revealing the face that only their bathroom mirror normally sees, will encourage the rest of us to do the same on Nov 8, in return for promises of cash from friends and family, in recognition of our bravery. And Kimberley does Yorkshire proud in these pictures. The Bradford g ...
