Strictly Come Dancing star Kym Marsh has broke her silence after it was revealed that she would be missing Saturday's episode of the BBC One show due to testing positive for Covid.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday ahead of the live show, Kym, 46, shared a sweet tribute to her daughter Emilie Cunliffe as she celebrated her 25th birthday.
Sharing a number of snaps of her daughter, the soap star penned a lengthy caption as she wished her a happy birthday.
The former Hear'Say singer, who is also a mother to son David, 27, and daughter Polly, 11, wrote: "25 years!!!!! 25 years since you made our worlds a brighter place to be! You are and always have been our sunshine!
"You always loved every second of life! Like a little whirlwind of fun sweeping through every room you walked into. You still are. You draw people to you, you make people smile, you make people angry too hahah but you are one of the funniest and kindest people I know!"
She continued, thanking her daughter for the "love and constant support" she has given, particularly in the last few month, including "cooking endless meals" for Kym and dancing pro Graziano Di Prima.
"You are a wonderful mummy, those babies are so so lucky to have you to guide them through their lives," Kym continued.
"You’re a fantastic sister, always there for David and Polly whenever they may need you.
"An amazing friend, and this I know first hand because you are my BEST friend, the laughs and the tears we have shared are ones I will carry with me always.
"There are so many wonderful things I can say about you, but I would be here all night, so I will end with this…..
"Emilie I am so very proud to call you my daughter. You are one hell of a woman!! So here’s to you baby girl! Happy birthday. Love you so much always and forever xxx"
The sweet post comes as Kym was absent from tonight's Strictly, after testing positive for Covid-19.
A Strictly spokesperson said: "Kym Marsh has tested positive for Covid-19. As a result, Kym and Graziano will not be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this weekend.
"Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that all being well, they will return the following week."
Tonight's show opened with hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly wishing her well, as they said: "Kym, we know you're watching and we are sending you so much love."
