KYM Marsh has signed another 12-month contract to stay on at Coronation Street after reportedly negotiating a six-figure sum.
This news comes as fellow co-stars Craig Charles (Lloyd Mullaney) and Alison King (Carla Connor) will leave at the end of the year.
Meanwhile, Kym, who grew up in Ashton, has been targeted by an impersonator online.
She has reportedly been left “shaken” and branded the culprit a “sicko” after they set up a fake email account in her name and began e-mailing her close friends. He is even said to have tried to organise a meeting with her pals, some of whom had fallen for the prank, before one of them became suspicious and alerted her.
