Ashley Roberts often worries she’s not living life to the full.

The 32-year-old already has a pretty impressive CV, having been part of the Pussycat Dolls and appeared on UK reality show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and acted as a judge on Dancing on Ice. However, there are still plenty of tasks on the star’s bucket list.

“Not getting everything done that I want to,” she answered British magazine Star when asked what she’s afraid of. “I love life, I want to do so many things, and I just want to make sure I get it all done before I exit.”

While she might have achieved a lot in her career, Ashley does have one regret. When she was younger, she’d always hoped to go into a different line of work.

“I was obsessed with dolphins,” she laughed. “I wanted to be a dolphin trainer or a marine biologist.”

The blonde star also wishes she’d been more chilled out when she was a teenager.

“It’s all good. Don’t stress,” she answered when asked what advice she would have given her 16-year-old self. “Everything’s going to be alright. You worry what people’s judgements are towards you, but don’t be afraid to be different.”

The singer is now gearing up to release solo single Clockwork this month. Music has always been a huge passion of hers.

“I remember shopping for cassettes!” she exclaimed. “I don’t think we had singles back then. [The first single I bought] was probably Paula Abdul or Janet Jackson.”

This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
