Kym Marsh breaks silence on ex Jamie Lomas doing I’m A Celeb

They ended their marriage in 2014

Kym Marsh has thrown her support behind ex Jamie Lomas as he gets stuck into his I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! experience.

The Coronation Street actress shared a very sweet video to Twitter on Sunday night showing the couple’s young daughter Polly urging viewers to vote for Jamie to win the jungle.

In the clip, little Polly, six, says: “Everybody vote for Jamie Lomas. My daddy. Vote for him now. Please, please, please!

“I’m excited to watch him and excited to see if he wins!”

Throwing her support behind Jamie, 42, even further, the actress retweeted someone who wrote: “Awwww bless #teamlomas all the way Polly.”

Another follower praised Kym on being supportive of her ex-husband, telling her: “What a wonderful example of a separated parent you are. So many use Twitter to slate or jab at exes. To see one support and with children is lush.”

Kym simply replied: “Thank you.”

Kym was married to ex Hollyoaks actor Jamie from 2012 until 2014.

They are parents to daughter Polly and son Archie, who tragically died after being born 18 weeks early in 2009.

Since their split, the pair appear to have remained on good terms.

Just last year Kym used her OK! magazine column to share her excitement at Jamie’s return to Hollyoaks as bad boy Warren Fox.

She said: “The show has tried a few times over the years to find a replacement for Warren but in my opinion no one has come close, so it’s fantastic for the fans that he’s going back.”

Jamie has since quit Hollyoaks again, suggesting recently he chose to enter the jungle over renewing his contract with the Channel 4 soap.

He said: “I was actually asked about this years ago but it wasn’t the right stage in my life.

“But it’s been a good year with work and I really did feel now was the right time to branch out. I have finished on Hollyoaks now.

“I had to make a decision – whether to sign [on for more episodes] or take the gamble. The gamble was I wanted to do this. And I felt it came at the right time. And it has paid off because I am doing it.”

Meanwhile, Kym won’t just be supporting Jamie in the jungle: her Corrie co-star Jennie McAlpine aka Fiz is also taking part in I’m A Celeb.

The 17th series of the show kicked off on Sunday night with ten new celebs arriving in Oz ready to face the spiders, snakes and other jungle horrors.

It continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
