In a January 2022 interview with The Sunday Post, she talked about her character. "When I heard I'd got it, I was doing a wee bit in Sky's A Discovery Of Witches. It was a night shoot in a storm so there was a lot of sitting about. I was wearing a corset, which I absolutely loved at first but within about an hour I was feeling pretty uncomfortable. It was cold and my feet were damp but then I got the call in the trailer about The One, and any grumps I had about being cold and wet were instantly gone because I was just so thrilled," Chimimba said.
No authentic websites have yet published any facts regarding Chimimba's personal life. Moreover, her social media handles like Twitter and Instagram suggest she is currently not married and does not have a husband.
