Coronation Street star Kym Marsh reveals bosses have ‘left open the door for her return’ as she predicts Michelle Connor will go back to the soap

Kym Marsh, 43, says she will cry her eyes out on her last day on Coronation Street after playing Michelle Connor for 13 years – but she’s keen to pursue new roles like a “psychopath in a dark drama” after leaving the cobbles.

In an exclusive interview with this week’s OK! magazine she said: “It’s going to be strange and there’s a little bit of nervousness there but I’m ready for it. I want to try new things before I’m too old.

“My last day will be emotional and I’ll cry my eyes out. It’s my decision to go but they’re kindly leaving the door open and I’d like to think I’d go back one day.

“I really want to do something different now. I’d like to play a psychopath in a really dark drama. I want to stretch myself.”

Before taking on new challenges Kym has enjoyed a week away in sunny Gran Canaria with her daughter Polly, eight, and partner Scott Ratcliff, 31.

Joining them were Kym’s son David, 24, and his girlfriend Courtney, 21, her daughter Emilie, 21, with her partner Mikey Hoszowskyj, 28, and their four-month-old son Teddy, Kym’s first grandchild.

Mikey’s three-year-old daughter, also called Polly, came along, too. They were also joined by Kym’s brother Jon, his wife Claire and their two sons Dylan, 12, and Finlay, eight.

Kym says the summer holiday gave the family lots of new experiences, including Teddy’s first time in water and Scott’s first trip away with her children.

She said: “There were lots of firsts for us this year. It was Teddy’s first holiday and he had his first ever little dip in the pool. He coped really well with the heat and he was so good the whole time.

“Emilie and Mikey were brilliant with him, she managed so well. I feel very lucky to have made lovely memories as a family. The children had the time of their lives.

“It was manic for us adults, though, because it was so full-on, seeing to the children, making sure they had plenty of sun protection on and taking them to the water park.”

Kym and Scott have been dating for just over a year after being introduced by Corrie’s Antony Cotton, who plays Sean Tully.

With Scott’s career in the army taking him away for long periods at a time, their relationship has been peppered by a string of emotional farewells. But Kym says distance has only made them stronger – and she believes he's The One.

She said: “We’re meant to be together, I really believe that, we’re made for each other.

“We don’t argue, we’re similar, we laugh at the same things. We’re used to time apart but despite that we’re as close as we are.

“We’ve got a lot in common and he loves family, too. Neither of us has to change to please the other. That’s the key thing. And we both feel very supported in what we do.”

The next few months are going to be challenging for the couple. Kym will front a five-part investigative BBC show about romance frauds called For Love Or Money and in December will star in an arena tour of ELF: A Christmas Spectacular alongside her daughter Polly.

For Scott, the end of the year will bring a lengthy six-month period away with the army, but despite their imminent separation, Kym remains positive that their relationship will remain solid.

She said: “I’m dreading Scott going away. It’s not the best feeling in the world but we’ll get through it.

“If you really want it, you fight for it. We try to make the most of the time we have with each other. Even if it’s just one extra night, we’ll travel ten hours to be with each other. You learn to cherish your relationship. We never take it for granted.”

She also says Scott helps to motivate her in the gym and credits him for helping her workout three times while on holiday as part of her training for the Paras’ 10 Challenge.

Kym added: “He’s brilliant at motivating and encouraging me. He says: ‘Come on Marshy, you can do it.’ I need that push.

“He always calls me Marshy, I never get called Kym by him. I started out as Marshy and then I became Little Marshy and sometimes I’m just Little, because he says I’m so tiny.

“He’s 6ft but he seems even taller because he stands up so straight. I like that he’s bigger than me and he likes that I’m little. We both find it attractive.”
