Kimberley Walsh misses Cheryl Cole since she went to Los Angeles.
The singer feels as though she has lost a friend since her Girls Aloud bandmate moved to America, but insists they are keeping in touch over the phone.
Speaking in OK! magazine, she said: “I’ve seen a fair bit of the girls lately and it is a shame that’s Cheryl’s not here – I do miss her when she’s in Los Angeles as I see quite a lot of her when she’s at home. We chat on the phone but we don’t Skype or anything – I’ve never got into it and Cheryl’s a technophobe, so she’d probably struggle to set that up.”
Cheryl has been in the US trying to secure a role on the upcoming American version of ‘The X Factor’ and she recently spent $3.5m (€2.5m) on a property in California so she has permanent base when she is in the country.
The Beverley hills property, which is part of the 42-storey Century building, has four acres of private gardens, boasts a home cinema, private 74ft pool, wine cellar and is protected by 24-hour security.
Last week, Kimberley attended fellow Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding’s engagement party at members-only club The Brompton, in London.
The 29-year-old pop beauty was joined at the bash – which was held to celebrate Sarah saying “yes” to DJ Tom Crane’s marriage proposal – by third member Nicola Roberts.
Cheryl and fifth member Nadine Coyle could not attend due to work commitments.
