Corrie’s Kym Marsh reveals she finds it “hard” working with Simon Gregson

His funny antics on set make it difficult to film scenes, apparently

Kym Marsh has admitted she finds it “hard” working alongside her Coronation Street co-star Simon Gregson – because he’s “so hysterical”.

The actress, who plays Michelle Connor on the ITV soap, said Simon – who plays Steve McDonald – cracks her up so much he must have been born with “funny bones”.

But she admitted his funny antics on set makes it “very difficult” not to laugh while the pair are shooting scenes together.

Meanwhile, actor Jack P. Shepherd – who plays David Platt – won the Best Actor gong, and Kym admitted her co-stars are “so proud” of the 30-year-old star.

Earlier this month, Kym addressed claims her co-star Jack is one of the highest paid actors on the soap.

The 43-year-old wrote in her new OK! Magazine column that nobody within the cast actually knows who the highest paid actor is and, even if they did, they wouldn’t care.

She said: “There were reports last week that stated that Jack P Shepherd was the highest paid actor on Corrie, but we don’t talk about how much we earn at work.

“In the past I’ve read I earn a different amount to what I actually do. No one knows and, actually, no one cares!”

Kym’s comments came after it was reported that Jack had signed a major money new deal to stay on the soap for the foreseeable future.

It was claimed his new deal was worth £250,000 and according to The Sunday Mirror, it marked a £30,000 pay rise for the actor.
