Kym Marsh has opened up about the upcoming emotional week in Coronation Street, which sees her character, Michelle, breaking down after her son, Ryan, is hit by a car in a moment of revenge from Ronan. Joking about the storyline to HELLO!, she said: "I can't work out whether the writers hate me or love me!" The star revealed that she lost her voice following the emotional scenes, explaining: "It was like four, five days [of filming]. There was such a lot of screaming and shouting from me. It was great because I went back to my Wigan roots for that! It was great, but I kind of lost my voice, my throat was really sore. It was quite a full on, intense period of time."

The mum-of-four also revealed that she drew on her own experiences as a mother to channel the emotion needed for the shocking moment in the popular soap. "[Michelle] is a lioness," she said. "She is a bit like a lioness with her cubs, as am I. I think when you're a mother you can't help but have that instinct where you just want to protect. And hopefully it'll never happen that my child is being chased by a drug dealer! But obviously she just wants to protect... Ali and Ryan... the mess that they're in has become a real tangled web of lies and this guy has really threatened them all at this point and she realises it's her job to protect the boys, and I would be exactly the same."
