FAMILY is all that matters for Kym Marsh.

The Ashton actress who had a turbulent 2013 after splitting with husband Jamie Lomas, took to Twitter to count her blessing and re-affirm her love for her children, David, Emily and Polly.

She said: “Just wanna say that my children are the most important things in my life and nothing or no-one will ever ever come between that #justsaying.”

The 37-year-old added a photo of her cuddling her youngest daughter, two-year-old Polly, telling her 381,000 Twitter followers: “Too lucky.”

But Twitter haters used the opportunity to criticise her again for opting for a career and so-called celebrity lifestyle, but Kym thanked her fans, who messaged their support for her.

The former Hear’Say singer has just returned from a holiday in Tenerife with her loved ones, saying: “Well thank you Tenerife for giving me and my family some much needed time together! Back to work I go! X”

She later tweeted: “Looking forward to getting back to work now! Love my job!!”

Fans were given a glimpse of her holiday life as she posted photos of herself with her older brother, David, posting: “Having a great time on hols with my babies and my big bro @uncle daveeed love my family sooooo much.”

She also uploaded a picture of David with an arm-band clad Poppy and revealed: “My bro @uncle daveeed and my angel in the pool he’s teaching her how to swim bless.”

Kym, who plays Coronation Street barmaid Michelle Connor, started divorce proceedings in October, a year after she wed Jamie, 33.

A decree nisi was issued around 10 days ago and should be finalised after six weeks.

The couple’s home in Worsley, Manchester, is now on the market. They were married more than one year.

Meanwhile, it looks like Jamie has moved on from his split as he has been spending time with model Chloe Peers.

The EastEnders star was spotted sharing a bottle of wine at a Heathrow bar with the blonde beauty, who is a former Britain’s Next Top Model contestant before jetting off on a ten day trip to LA.

Chloe, who is 14 years younger than Kym, was spotted heaving a heavy suitcase into Jamie’s house the night before the morning flight.

Jamie, who plays Jake Wood in the BBC one soap, has kept quiet on his Twitter account - but Chloe, who describes herself as “addicted to travel” simply wrote “bye bye.”
