The former Coronation Street actress is already a grandmother after her daughter Emilie welcomed a son in 2019.

The happy news comes just as Kym prepares to take part in this year's series of Strictly Come Dancing. Of her involvement, she said: "I've considered doing Strictly for years but the timings never worked out.

"I'm so delighted that this year they have! I’m a huge fan of the show and can’t believe I’m going to go from watching at home in my pyjamas to actually dancing in front of the judges in a glittery dress, it's unreal!"
