Corrie’s Kym Marsh lands new contract after ‘brilliant’ handling of challenging storylines

Coronation Street fans will be seeing Michelle Connor for the foreseeable as Kym Marsh has reportedly landed herself a new contract with the ITV soap.

The news comes after Kym Marsh has had to tackle the difficult storyline of Michelle losing her son Ruairi at 24 weeks after her waters broke early.

Michelle has also had to deal with the betrayal of cheating husband Steve McDonald and the fact that he is the father to Leanne Battersby’s new baby.

Talking about Kym’s new contract with the soap, an insider told The Sun: “Over the past year she has been handed some really challenging storylines, and she has handled them all brilliantly.

“But it was the miscarriage scenes that really blew them away. What’s more, they had a huge impact on viewers, many of whom got in touch to say how moved they were.

“Over the years Michelle has become a real Street favourite and everyone is pleased that Kym has signed for another year.”

Coronation Street continues on ITV.
