IT COULD be something we see in a soap.

But this real-life feud between Coronation Street star Kym Marsh and Hollyoaks star Stephanie Waring looks set to go on and on.

The spat between the pair – reported to be ‘friends’ up until two weeks ago – is over a man.

Last week, a tabloid reported that Kym was seeing personal trainer Dan Hooper.

Up until two months ago, Dan was in a relationship with Stephanie, who is the mother of his three-year-old daughter.

Kym strenuously denied any romance with Dan – but Stephanie was upset and called her out on Twitter.

Stephanie then gave an interview with a Sunday newspaper in which she alleged Kym broke the ‘girl code’ by dating her former beau.

She also supplied the newspaper with texts from the Coronation Street star.

Following publication of the interview, mum-of-three Kym tweeted #bitter, a few hours after writing “Never fails to surprise me what some people do for money”.

Later Stephanie tweeted a picture of a black kettle.

Glamour model Nicola McLean then waded into the row, saying “Kim” broke the “girl code”.

Nicola was then blasted by Kym’s sister Tracey Marsh for spelling the soap star’s name incorrectly.

To make matters worse, Dan Hooper subsequently tweeted an image of him and Kym kissing passionately, just hours after Kym denied they were in a relationship.

This is not the first time stars from Coronation Street and Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks have crossed swords.

Two years ago, Jennifer Metcalfe (Mercedes in Hollyoaks) was left heartbroken when her former partner, Dancing on Ice skater, Silvain Longchambon began a relationship with Samia Ghadie.

Incidentally, Kym’s former husband Jamie Lomas starred in Hollyoaks as gangster Warren Fox.

The pair split last year after revelations that Kym had an affair with her co-star Oliver Mellor.

Since then, the pair have exchanged barbed comments on social media.

They have a three-year-old daughter Polly together.
