Strictly star Kimberley also thinks the show is in desperate need of 'decent contestants'.

Speaking to The Sun Kimba says: "I think it misses Cheryl."

We agree.

"She was brilliant on it and I think she's missed. She and Simon were very amusing to watch. It was a good chemistry and I think that is missed."

Kimberley then hinted that she reckons this year the show has become less about the talent, more about the drama, saying:

"The whole line up of judges has changed over the years and the time Cheryl was involved was a great time, there were some great winners and it was all about the talent."

And the Girls Aloud star most definitely thinks that Strictly is better than X Factor this year, just because it isn't as serious.

Kimberley says: "The thing about Strictly is it is so happy. It's a warm show and people have embraced it."

"People want escapism, they want to be happy, and The X Factor is a lot more serious. It is people's lives at stake and it does really matter if people go."
