The actress appeared on Daybreak this morning (September 21) and revealed that she would struggle to keep up with her feisty alter ego.
Pictured: Tameka Empson on Daybreak today.
Asked if she is the same as Kim in real life, Empson replied: "I don't know if I am, you know! In a way yes, and no. She's bolder than myself. She can go on all night - I need a break in between dancing and stuff!
"I like good shoes, comfortable shoes. But it all works [for Kim], from the toes right the way up."
Empson is currently waiting to hear whether she has triumphed as 'Funniest Female' at the 2012 Inside Soap Awards, which take place next week. She won the comedy prize at last year's event and is hoping to retain her crown.
Praising EastEnders for featuring comedic characters, she commented: "It's that nice balance, isn't it? Life can be a bit stressful, but also life can be funny, so you've got my character, you've got Fatboy as well, and you've got Cora, who I think is hilarious. I worked with her just the other day, so there's some nice funny scenes coming up.
"I'm up for 'Funniest Female', and [Ricky Norwood] is up for 'Funniest Male'. It would be lovely on the mantelpiece."
The Inside Soap Award winners will be revealed in London on Monday (September 24).
