Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt says her biggest regret is the band not accepting Lady Gaga's hit 'Just Dance'.

The girl group - also comprising Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Carmit Bachar, Melody Thornton and Jessica Sutta - could have had a huge hit with the pop megastar's breakthrough 2008 single, but they turned it down, and Kimberly insists it was not her choice.

She told new! magazine: "Lady Gaga wrote 'Just Dance' for the Dolls.

"It certainly wasn't my choice to turn it down.

"She went on to make it a massive hit and it broke her career, so ultimately it was meant to be hers.

"So if there's one song I regret not working on, it's probably that."

Kimberly was due to reunite for a tour with the Pussycat Dolls in 2020 but the shows were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and then in January 2021 Nicole announced the plans had been dropped entirely.

But Kimberly only found out the reunion tour had been cancelled through a fan's Twitter post.

She said: "The way it was communicated wasn't nice or kind to most of us.

"I found out through a fan's tweet. I was devastated and cried my eyes out.

"We were planning a world tour and were even booked for Glastonbury."

However, the singer admitted late last year that she is still "hopeful" the band will hit the road again.

She said: "I feel really powerless right now but I am still hopeful that it will happen."
