Kimberley Walsh appears not to have got off to a flying start with her first solo TV performance.

The Girls Aloud singer performed a rendition of One Day I'll Fly Away, Randy Crawford's classic, at the National Television Awards.

One viewer wrote on Twitter: "Somebody call the police. Kimberley Walsh just murdered One Day I'll Fly Away at the NTA awards. Thousands of witnesses."

A viewer compared Kimberley unfavourably to former X Factor contestant Ella Henderson, saying: "Have to say, Ella Henderson 's performance is 100 times better than Kimberley Walsh's earlier appearance."

But rallying to her defence, another viewer said she did well for her first solo live TV performance, while another added: "Watching NTAs on catch-up. Yes Kimberley Walsh isn't perfect but she's singing live. Hear that Chezza? LIVE. As in not miming."

Other comments included "I love Kimberley but that was absolutely shocking"..."That Kimberley Walsh performance was stunning as long as you were watching it on mute"... "and Kimberley Walsh, achieving the almost impossible feat of hitting all of the wrong notes...".

Strictly Come Dancing contestant Kimberley, who performed in a stunning off-the-shoulder silver gown, tweeted at the awards bash: "Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!! So happy that Strictly Come Dancing won the NTA! Such an amazing show to be a part of!"

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
