Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh is set to take a break from the soap soon and peruse other acting opportunities, but the star has opened up about how she wishes she was a bit busier at the moment, to take her mind off her other half Scott Ratcliffe, who is currently out of the country on deployment with the military.
Writing in her weekly column for OK! Kym revealed: ‘I’m very quiet at work and that’s a shame as I’d rather be busy to take my mind off missing him.’
But who is Scott Ratcliffe and where is he at the moment?
Who is Kym Marsh’s boyfriend Scott Ratcliffe?
Kym Marsh’s boyfriend, Scott, is 32-years-old and a major in the Parachute Regiment.
The Glasgow-born military man first met Kym in 2018 and the pair started dating in July last year, following her split from Matt Baker.
Kym and Scott were introduced by the star’s celebrity pal Antony Cotton and got to know each other via FaceTime and texting before they agreed to meet for their first date.
Kym revealed to Fabulous magazine that she is in love with Scott, who she has now been dating for over a year: ‘He has a smile that has the ability to light up any room. He’s got a lovely aura about him. People want to be around him,’ she said, ‘And I love that he’s not got any idea how fit he is.’
Scott is now going on tour in the Middle East as part of his job and Kym has spoken of her concerns ahead of his deployment with The Sun: ‘There is always anxiety, it is always stressful when he goes away.’
‘There may not be an actual war threat currently but there’s always a risk when you’re in these dangerous places.
‘It won’t be easy watching him go away, and I will worry until I see him again.’
Before his deployment, Kym planned a series of surprises and fun days out for Scott to make the most of their time together before he had to leave the UK.
Marking their final moments together before Scott had to leave, Kym posted a tribute to him on social media saying: ‘Make sure the ones you love the most know how you feel. Hold them tight, keep them in your hearts and never take them for granted,’ alongside a picture of her holding hands with her partner.
Now Kym will be trying to take her mind off missing her man by throwing herself into work projects and spending time with her family.
Although Kym has announced that she will be taking a break from Corrie later this year, she will be appearing in a stage show of Elf, based on the hit movie, which will go on tour this winter.
Kym is a mother of four children and became a grandma for the first time earlier this year when her eldest daughter Emily Mae welcomed a baby boy with boyfriend of two years, Mikey Hoszowskyj.
Kym’s daughter Emily and her son David were born while the actress was dating builder Dave Cunliffe, before she found fame on the reality TV show Popstars in 2000. Following her split from Dave, the star went on to marry EastEnders actor Jack Ryder in 2002, but she admitted to cheating on him with actor Jamie Lomas in March 2009 and the couple were granted a quick divorce.
Jamie and Kym announced they were expecting a baby in 2009, a year after they started dating, but sadly their son Archie Jay Lomas was born 18 weeks early and died moments after birth.
The couple welcomed a baby girl, Polly, in March 2011 and Kym tied the knot again in 2012 with Jamie, however they filed for divorce a year later.
It looked like Kym was set to walk down the aisle for a third time back in 2014, when it was revealed that she was engaged to her then-boyfriend Dan Hooper after eight months of dating, but the actress broke off the engagement in May 2015.
‘I’m a huge romantic but I’ve been unlucky in love,’ Kym told The Sun earlier this year.
‘My mum and dad have been together since my mum was 18 and the problem with that is that me and my sister are always looking for my dad. And he doesn’t exist because, well, Dad’s Dad!
‘I have had two divorces and I know I sound like Ross from Friends, but it’s never deterred me from believing that there is someone out there for me.’
Despite finding love again with Scott, Kym admitted that she’s learnt that love is ‘no fairytale’ and is ‘hard work’.
