Kym Marsh reveals why Jamie Lomas won’t discuss their marriage in jungle

They were married from 2012 until 2014

Kym Marsh has been cheering on ex-husband Jamie Lomas while he competes on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

And the Coronation Street star is not worried in the slightest about him spilling any details on their past romance around the campfire.

Why? Because they’ve managed to stay friends post-split.

While plenty of celebs may be worried about what their former spouse may say about them on a TV show, Kym said she and Jamie have a “very good relationship” and he’s a great dad to their six-year-old daughter Polly.

Kym, 41, told The Mirror: “We went for coffee a few weeks before he went. There’s no bad feelings. We have a very good relationship, Jamie and I. Polly has a good relationship with her dad.”

“We have nothing bad to say about each other.”

The star’s backing Jamie, 42, to win the show – but has admitted it’s a bit tough for her as Corrie co-star Jennie McAlpine is also taking part.

Writing in her OK! magazine column, Kym said: “Jamie and I have a good relationship and our main priority is Polly. I’m a bit torn, though, as my friend and Corrie co-star Jennie McAlpine is also in the jungle!

“I would love for either Jamie or Jennie to win, but Polly would just be so happy if her daddy won, so because of that he has the edge for me.

“Jamie to win!”

Kym also confessed that she and Polly will be voting for Jamie to do EVERY single Bushtucker Trial.

But rather than wanting to see him suffer, she explained: “Polly will want to see him being challenged as he’s her hero. I think he’ll do well and he’ll try to win the challenges. ”

Meanwhile, Kym has been supporting Jamie on social media as well, posting a sweet video on Sunday night showing the couple’s daughter Polly urging viewers to vote for Jamie to win the jungle.

In the clip, little Polly 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!”

Kym uploaded the video with the caption: “I think someone is excited to watch their daddy @imacelebrity she’s wants to vote now even though you can’t, super cute.”

Throwing her support behind Jamie 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.”
