Kimberley Gail Marsh is an English actress and former singer and songwriter, who rose to prominence in 2000 after winning a place in the band Hear’Say on Popstars. After leaving the group in 2002, she released a solo album titled Standing Tall in 2003, which spawned two top ten singles. Since 2006, she has been known for her role as Michelle Connor in Coronation Street, for which she won Newcomer awards at the 2007 British Soap Awards and the 2007 National Television Awards. In 2010, she finished fourth in the first series of Popstar to Operastar. She won Best Female Dramatic Performance at the 2017 British Soap Awards. Marsh married the actor Jack Ryder in St Albans, Hertfordshire, on 10 August 2002. It was announced on 20 March 2008 that the couple had decided to separate and would be seeking a divorce. Marsh and Ryder announced their divorce on 12 August 2009. Marsh has a son named David (born 1995) and a daughter named Emilie (born 1997) from a previous relationship with Dave Cunliffe. Marsh dated the actor Jamie Lomas from July 2008 onwards. They married in Cheshire in September 2012. She and Lomas announced that they were expecting a baby in 2009. Their son, Archie Jay Lomas, was born 18 weeks early on 11 February and died moments after birth. Marsh stated that “Archie is our beautiful angel and we will miss him so much. Thank you all for your support.” On 23 March 2011 Marsh gave birth to a daughter, Polly. Marsh filmed a documentary for ITV about premature births, called Born Too Soon; and in late 2010 she helped to organise, and spoke at, a gala to raise money for the special care baby charity Bliss. On 3 October 2012, Marsh announced that she would be known, not as Kym Marsh, but as Kym Lomas, but in October 2013, she filed for divorce, citing unreasonable behaviour. The divorce was finalised on 10 January 2014, and she reverted to the name Kym Marsh. In January 2015, Marsh’s daughter, Emilie Cunliffe was one of the auditionees for the fourth series of The Voice UK. Marsh was also present at the audition as family support.
