HOLLYOAKS actress Stephanie Waring has said that she has ended her feud with Kym Marsh for the sake of her child.

The soap stars were at loggerheads after Stephanie, who plays Cindy Cunningham, branded Kym, of Ashton, heartless for starting a relationship with her former boyfriend of five years, Dan Hooper, who is also the father of her daughter, Lexi.

But Stephanie told Closer magazine: “Kym and I are fine now - we have to be for the sake of our children.

“Life is too short to hold grudges and be bitter and I’m not that sort of person. I’m quite happy and positive.”

Meanwhile, Dan, 38, and Kym are still going strong and recently enjoyed a family holiday.

The couple also attended the Creme De La Creme children’s charity ball, organised by Dawn Ward, where The 38-year-old lent her support to model Danielle Lloyd who has split from her husband, Jamie O’Hara, amid cheating rumours.

Danielle said: “It’s hard coming out knowing that people want to ask me questions.

“But I don’t want to talk about Jamie, I have Dawn (Ward) and Kym to talk to when I need to - they are my rocks.”

Kym, who plays Michelle Connor in Coronation Street, was also one of the leading celebrities backing last week’s Jeans For Genes Day, raising money for research into genetic disorders.

She said: “As a mother, I know how important it is for a child’s health and wellbeing to be the best it can be.

“So my heart really goes out to all the mothers and fathers out there who have a child with a genetic disorder and the impact this has on all of their lives.

“They deserve all the support they can get, and that’s why I am backing the Jeans for Genes.

“By making a simple commitment to wear jeans for one day we can all transform the lives of thousands of children across the UK.”

The ex-Hear-Say singer will also be one of many celebrity guests at Harry’s Ball, in Exmouth, on November 15, to raise money for the Harry Cunningham Trust, founded by Niki and Jamie Cunningham after their son Harry died aged 26 hours in 2012.

Other stars include Ashley Taylor Dawson of Hollyoaks and Strictly Come Dancing, and members from Made in Chelsea and The Only Way Is Essex. There is also a entertainment from former X Factor contestants, Luke Friend and Rough Copy, and former Britain’s Got Talent runners-up Twist and Pulse.
