Kym Marsh (Michelle Connor) reckons she can stand up for herself

Kym Marsh has revealed she once took on a group of drunks during a late-night filming session for Coronation Street.

The actress, who plays Michelle Connor in the soap, told this week's New! magazine: "I was doing a night shoot once and a gang of drunken lads were shouting racist comments at a colleague through the gates.

"I barged over and put them in their place."

Kym said her co-star Julie Hesmondhalgh, who plays Hayley Cropper, reckons the ex-Hear'Say star is a tough cookie.

She said: "Julie Hesmondhalgh says 'If there's trouble, all you need is Kym Marsh with you. She's 'ard!'."
