Corrie stalwart – and recent awesome award-winner – Kym Marsh has called in police after becoming the victim of revenge porn.
Last week it was revealed that intimate images of Kym with an ex had surfaced online.
And now Kym has reported the leak – which is thought to involve very old pictures – to police, who are investigating.
A source told The Sun that Kym is (erm, pretty understandably) shaken by the news.
“Kym has done nothing wrong, so she is horrified to be in this position,” they told the newspaper.
“This is a nightmare for her.”
Kym is also said to be terrified that video footage will be leaked alongside the pictures, which are believed to be the same ones as those that surfaced a year ago.
Attempts were made to sell those images to the newspapers, but they were declined and her representatives were informed.
Now it seems that whoever is responsible is making another attempt to extort Kym.
“She can’t believe someone would be so cruel as to do this to her for money,” the source told The Sun.
“And she is determined to do everything she can to help the police investigate.”
A spokesman for Kym told the newspaper: “These are private moments between husband and wife and shouldn’t be in the public domain.”
The horrible news comes only a few days after Kym won Best Female Dramatic Performance at the British Soap Awards for Corrie’s storyline on losing a baby and dedicated the award to her late son Archie.
“It took us back to places we didn’t want to go to again, but we wanted to do it,” she said of herself and co-star Simon Gregson who plays Steve. “We wanted to tell the story because it is such an important story to tell.
“There are so many people going through that right now – as we’re sitting here enjoying ourselves, someone is losing their baby. I’ve gone through that myself as I’m sure most of you know, so has Simon.”
Now Kym is focused on getting back to work on Corrie – and being about a million times gutsier than whoever leaked those images.
