Kym Marsh has revealed she’s selling the home she bought with ex-boyfriend Matt Baker as she’s “ready for a fresh start”.
The Coronation Street actress, 42, wrote in her new OK! Magazine column she also wants to buy a bigger property nearer her parents as she’s getting “stressed” living in house that’s too small for her family’s current needs.
Kym told fans she had intended to extend the house when she first bought it, but those plans fell through and it’s time for a change as the family are “living on top of each other.”
She wrote: “My personal circumstances have changed since I bought it last year and I’m ready for a fresh start.”
The soap star, who plays Corrie’s Michelle Connor, added: “It’s getting to the point where I can’t cope with the stress of living in a house that’s too small for us.”
She explained the family have converted a room downstairs into a fourth bedroom to house the family, which includes children David, 23, Emilie, 21, and seven-year-old Polly.
“I feel really positive about the change,” she added, “as I’ve been toying with the idea for a while.”

Kym split from ex-boyfriend Matt, 27, in April following a three-year relationship.
It came as a shock to fans as the couple had previously revealed plans to live together in a newly-bought home.
The actress is now dating Army Major Scott Ratcliff after they were introduced by mutual friend Antony Cotton, who co-stars with Kym in Coronation Street.
Kym and Scott went public with their romance in July and the following month attended their first red carpet event together.
They joined a slew of soap stars to celebrate Adam and Scott Thomas’ 30th birthday at a glam party in Manchester.
Kym has said in recent interviews it’s still “early days” with Scott but everything is going well.
Although he’s accompanied her to a couple of red carpet events, she’s stressed that she’s keen to keep their relationship as private as she can, especially as Scott does not want or seek the limelight.
