Kym Marsh jumps to Corrie co-star’s defence after Botox jibe

Kym spoke out after Kate Ford targeted with "mean" comment

Kym Marsh has said she feels for Coronation Street co-star Kate Ford, as she’s also been subjected to nasty remarks online.

Last week, Kate – who plays Tracey Barlow – revealed a woman had tweeted a photo of her forehead and suggested she needs Botox.

Well, Kym was NOT amused.

Writing in her weekly OK! column, the soap star called the comment “mean” and said she couldn’t understand why people wanted to drag each other down.

Kym wrote: “I’ve got used to the odd vile comment on Twitter and it doesn’t really affect me any more. Although that’s sad in a way, isn’t it?

“We should all be kinder. I love Kate Ford – she’s a beautiful person inside and out and it really annoys me that someone should hurt her feelings, so back off!”

The actress also said “you can’t win sometimes” and if someone chooses not to have a cosmetic procedure, they can be told they need one, and if they do have a procedure, they can be told they didn’t need it!

Kate revealed the nasty comment in a tweet last week.

She told fans: “I won’t Twitter shame, but I’m a 40-year-old woman and another woman has just tweeted a picture of my forehead and said she doesn’t believe in Botox but if she had a forehead like mine, she would. Shame on you! You do women a disservice!”

Kym isn’t the only one of Kate’s Coronation Street co-stars to support her.

Catherine Tyldesley, who plays Eva Price, tweeted in response: “You’re kidding me?? Jealously babe. Pure and simple – you’re fit as! What a polluted soul she has. Give me a wrinkle over a [bleep] personality any day.”

And Sally Ann Matthews, aka Jenny Bradley, said: “Unbelievable. I’m giving her my ‘special’ death glare.”

Meanwhile, Kym revealed in her OK! column last July that she’s previously warned new Corrie co-stars to be wary of reading online comments.

She wrote: “When anyone starts at Coronation Street, I tell them never to read them – you’d just want to quit immediately.”
