During an interview with The Sun, the blonde bombshell, 35, has explained how her role on the cobbles has affected her life, and even stunted her search for love online.
As she opened up about her role over the years, the Welsh actress confessed some of the downsides to her current storyline in the Manchester-based soap.
She admitted: “People have definitely mixed up my character with me. Men think it’s really funny to approach me and say, ‘How much?’
“I am on dating apps and it comes up on there, too. I just unmatch them straight away.”
However, Kimberly made to sure to inform viewers of the many pros to her raw take on the life as an escort on the show.
She added: “But it am thrilled that charities and sex workers have contacted me to say they like the way Nicky is portrayed because she is so realistic and writers haven’t given her a drug or drink problem.
“She is just a feisty mum, doing it for her daughter – for survival. I am so proud to play her.
“I know plenty of people who work in the sex industry and on things like OnlyFans – it isn’t an unknown world to me and they are just normal people trying to get by. Fair play to them.”
