A LEIGH personal trainer has worked his way into Kym Marsh’s affections.
Matt Baker, who runs M1 Health, in Manchester, has been mixing business with pleasure as he has been dating the Ashton-born star.
The pair reportedly got close when he was employed as her personal trainer last spring.
Kym split from her husband, Jamie Lomas, in October and they had been exchanging flirty texts, as the former Winstanley College student has been her shoulder to cry on.
Whilst the Coronation Street star was adamant she was swearing off men, the couple became official when they spent Valentine’s weekend in Paris and posted a snap of themselves on Instagram.
Matt, who, at 24, is 13 years younger than the star, tweeted: “Le Weekend” next to a love heart.
Kym’s brother, David Marsh, later favourited the tweet.
Meanwhile, the mum-of-three cryptically posted a message on Twitter: “So... Valentine’s day tomorrow!! What ya getting me!?” and speaking of her Paris trip wrote: “Literally having best weekend EVER! lucky girl.”
Their outing comes several weeks after Jamie started seeing model Chloe Peers, 23, who is 14 years younger than 37-year-old Kym.
Despite a spokesman for Kym saying the pair are good friends and not in a relationship, the pair are very close and Matt has met her family and even follows them on Twitter.
He also showed support for Kym by slamming former Corrie actor Oliver Mellor on Twitter for his tell-all story about his affair with her last February while she was still married to Jamie.
