Ashley Roberts: ‘My friends always try and find my Mr. Right’

Singer Ashley Roberts gets nervous about being set up by her celebrity friends because she worries what will happen if she doesn’t like her date.

Singer Ashley Roberts’ celebrity friends always try and play matchmaker for her.

The former Pussycat Dolls star is currently single, having previously enjoyed relationships with television presenter Matt Johnson and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! host Declan Donnelly.

Thanks to her career Ashley has a host of famous friends, and admits they often try and find her the perfect date.

“People have said, ‘Oh I might know somebody’. It’d be good to have a referral but it does make me nervous in case I don’t like them and they get offended,” Ashley explained to Britain’s new! magazine.

Until she does find her perfect match, Ashley is happy living the family life vicariously through ex bandmate Kimberly Wyatt. The 33-year-old became mother to daughter Willow in December 2014 with husband Max Rogers, and Ashley is smitten with the little girl.

“Her daughter Willow is such a yummy little nugget,” she laughed. “She’s crawling now and starting to talk. I was there the day she was born and I feel connected to her. I’m not really a kid person – I love dogs – but I do love Willow.”

Ashley is still searching for her Mr. Right and is in no rush to have children herself. She admits she does hope for a family at some point in her future, but is happy for now being the cool auntie.

“I definitely want kids and a family with the right person in the future but I’m happy with Willow,” she said. “It’ll happen someday but I love life right now.”

Since their days in the Pussycat Dolls, the band’s members have gone on to do their own things. However, with more and more bands of yesteryear reuniting to create new music, the Pussycat Dolls fans have hoped the group might be next to recreate their former success.

But Ashley insists that while a reunion could happen at some point in the future, it’s not on the cards anytime soon.

“We’ve been asked this for years,” she said. “I don’t know if it will happen. Never say never – but it’s not currently happening. We’re all doing our own thing.”
