But Cheryl, who had been wowed crowds in Cannes last night with her dramatic entrance on the red carpet, arrived during the interval.
Nevertheless Kimberley seemed overwhelmed by the support of her bandmates and was beaming as she posed for snaps.
As usual Nadine Coyle failed to make an appearance but perhaps she is preparing for her upcoming stint inside the Big Brother house.
All the girls together, sort of: Cheryl dashed to the theatre arriving during the interval to pose up with Kimberley while she was treated to visits from Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts earlier in the day
