Coronation Street star Kym Marsh says she WILL be coming back to the soap as she ‘really misses’ it

“I really do miss everyone, I really miss the street,” she told Entertainment Daily.

“When I left I always said I’d come back one day and I will.

“I just needed to get out and take a little breather and do some other things.”

Kym, who has missed the first week of Morning Live filming as she has an urgent hernia operation added: “I have no doubt probably one day that I’ll go back there and dip my toe back, but right now I’m far too busy at the moment.”

She also admitted that the timing of her departure has been strange as just months later the coronavirus pandemic cancelled filming projects.

 “I have been really busy and I’ve been so fortunate, but obviously the year I left was really weird.

“I left in late October 2019 and went straight into doing loads of other bits and bobs and I had loads of stuff planned for the year after that obviously all fell through.

“I thought, oh no, what a year to leave!”

Kym’s gamble has paid off though as she played a cheating wife in her first movie role since quitting Corrie.

She stars alongside Luke Goss, Martin Kemp and Joan Collins in the festive dark comedy The Loss Adjuster.

She said at the time that she wanted to “explore other roles”, but later told OK! she wanted to spend time with her grandson.

She said: “Another big factor in my decision to take a break from Corrie is the impending arrival of my grandson. I’m looking forward to having more time to spend with him and Emilie after he’s born this summer.

“Other actresses from the show have gone on to do other incredible acting work, so who knows! It’s scary but I’m also really excited about what the future holds.”

Kym’s last episode as Michelle Connor was in December 2019. She recently landed a presenting gig for the BBC’s new daily show Morning Live, alongside Gethin Jones.
