 Kym Marsh: My Coronation Street wedding felt like my own big day Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

It’s been a pretty tough year on the cobbles for poor old Michelle Connor, with her share of the Rovers Return in jeopardy and fiancé Steve McDonald’s battle with depression.

But finally, the pair are set to tie the knot and live happily ever after (well, as happy as you can be on Coronation Street).

But the doom and gloom storylines sadly reflect Kym’s current situation. After two marriages and five engagements, her wedding plans with real life fiancé Dan Hooper are on hold.

But she disguises heartbreak well. When we meet her on set, in dressed-down mode but still very glam (with hair plaited by her 18-year-old daughter, Emily), she can’t stop laughing about her on-screen hubby-to-be, Simon Gregson. "The funniest thing is how much our wedding has confused my four-year-old daughter, Polly," Kym laughs. "She just calls him “the daddy one”, because she sees us pretending to be a little family on screen. I actually took her to try on wedding dresses for Michelle and she said, “Are you wearing that dress to marry the daddy one?” I said I was pretending to marry him, but it’s too much for her tiny mind. Si thinks it’s adorable."

In Soap Land, the union of Michelle and Steve is a pretty big moment. They’ve been through more ups and downs than The Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, but they’re always drawn together again through what Kym describes as ‘unconditional love’. Aw. But is Steve the perfect on-screen husband?

"He is. I really see why Michelle would like him. He’s an idiot, but he’s her idiot. And they have no secrets from one another – that’s why Michelle was so hurt when Steve didn’t tell her about his depression. But I’ve suffered with it myself and I know how hard it is to admit something is wrong, so I see why Michelle and Steve have such a close bond. We do out of work too. We’re good mates."

Filming the wedding must have been hard for Michelle, but at least it offered some light relief after months of on-screen tears. "Well, Tracy will try and ruin the day of course," Kym says, "but when I walked out in my dress, Si and the cast just stopped and went, “Aw, don’t you look gorgeous,” all teary-eyed! It was quite a moment. It might not be your actual wedding, but you still get a thrill and want to look nice. I had a spray tan to prepare."

Bless Kym, she still manages to muster up excitement about her first on-screen wedding, despite the fact her own marital plans may now have come to nothing. Kym might be unlucky in love, but she’s had her fair share of blokes on screen.

"My first ever scene with a man on Corrie was with Jake the builder, whose entrance to the show was falling off a roof into my bathroom window. Michelle was taking a bath and I had to drop my towel in front of him, so I was stood there with plasters on my nipples and wearing a nude pair of knickers. I’d just had my boobs done and it took a few takes because the towel kept getting stuck on them. It was hilarious!"

Comedy breast moments aside, Kym obviously takes great interest in her appearance and she looks good. She has an amazing figure, a stylish wardrobe and enough make-up to last a lifetime.

"I love make-up," she smiles, "I’ve been in theatre since I was at primary school, so I’ve been doing my own make-up since I was very young. My daughter Emily, 18, is the same. She borrows all my clothes too. Some things I’ll buy and never see again. I see her trying on my Christian Louboutin shoes, but she has tiny feet and they don’t fit. I think, “Ha! You can’t wear them!”"

Glamour puss Emily auditioned on the last series of The Voice. She didn’t get through, and as a result was the victim of cruel Twitter jibes about her talent and appearance. "To be honest, the trolls targeted me more than her. She has very thick skin, it’s me who goes mad, but I just use the block button for negative people now."

Kym might be nursing a broken heart, but she has a good gang of friends to help cheer her up. Plus, Emily and older son David, 20, are happy to babysit youngest daughter Polly, so Kym can let her hair down. "I can’t handle work with a hangover, so I don’t go out mid-week. But Polly adores them looking after her, and although they have their own social lives, they help. I like a couple of drinks, but I’m far too old for clubbing."

Although she admits to some heavy nights with co-stars Antony Cotton (Sean Tully), Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster) and new recruit Katie McGlynn (Sinead Tinker) who they’ve ‘led astray’. "I’m the best drinker out of the gang! Everything in moderation, but us four have had some boozy nights and there are photographs to prove it."

Despite her protestations about her age, Kym can still hang out with the kids. "For David’s 20th birthday

I booked him and his mates a table at a cool club in town. But he kept ringing me, begging me to come down too. When I walked in they were all cheering. So I spent a Friday night clubbing with my son!"

So what does the future hold for Kym? We’re crossing our fingers she’ll get her own fairy tale ending, just like Michelle. But if not, we have a feeling she’s going to be just fine. Having signed another lucrative contract with Corrie, work security is guaranteed. "I am so busy with Corrie that I don’t think they’d let me have any time off for another project, so no, there will not be a Hear’Say reunion!" she laughs, shaking her head. "I had some amazing times and joining the group was when life changed for the better for me and my children, but I don’t think any of us have the time."

Her kids still think she’s cool, despite the old pop videos. "It was exciting for them. They support me through everything. I have a wonderful family and career. I’m very lucky."
