Coronation Street star Kym Marsh revealed that she still finds it surreal to be working with co-star Simon Gregson, particularly as she was such an admirer before she landed the role on the soap.

Kym (40) admitted that she once had posters of Simon, who plays Corrie’s Steve McDonald, on her wall when she was younger, only to end up becoming his TV wife.

“I actually had a poster of Simon on my wall when I was younger, which is so weird. He was a heart-throb in the day,” she said, speaking to The Sunday Mirror.

“I love Simon, he’s gorgeous like a teddy bear,” she said.

The pairs’ characters are currently embroiled in baby drama, as Kym’s character Michelle has fallen pregnant with her husband Steve, but so has neighbour Leanne Battersby unbeknownst to the barmaid.

Kim, however, said there are to be no more babies in her camp as she has her hands full with her three kids David (21), Emilie (18) and Polly (5).

“I’ve done my bit for motherhood, thank you.

“They are wonderful and my best friends and we have such a fantastic relationship,” she said.
