We're loathe to report on the private lives of Corrie stars, but we're very sorry to announce that Kym and Jamie Lomas have decided to part. It's being reported that Kym had an affair with co-star Oliver Mellor, the little-seen Street doctor.
A source close to Jamie allegedly told the Sunday People: "Kym has been having an affair since February and kept it a secret. Jamie found out a few days ago and is absolutely devastated. It was a bolt out of the blue.
"He doesn't think there is any opportunity for them to get back together. He's told her it's over."
The affair is reported to have begun during a cast night out on Valentine's Day.
As news of the separation spread, Kym has pulled out of a charity bash "due to unforeseen circumstances". The former Hear'Say star was expected to sing alongside her daughter Emily, 15, at a ball in Merseyside.
While the tabloids splash this all over, we'd just like to say that we appreciate that life is rarely perfect and often turns out how you least expect it; we're sure it can't be easy having the details of your life laid bare. Let's hope it can be settled amicably and with least disruption to the children.
