Morning Live: Kym Marsh stuns viewers with appearance as she returns to show

The former Corrie star took some time off to help care for her sick dad

Kym Marsh made a return to Morning Live on Friday (October 29).

The TV star, 45, has been away from screens for the last few months so she could spend time with her family.

While she was off, her spot was filled by Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two host Janette Manrara.

Kym‘s co-host, Gethin Jones, welcomed her onto the show, saying “We’ve got some nice news on Morning Live, Kym’s back, it’s so lovely to have you back!”

Fans also rushed to share their happiness at seeing Kym return to work and gushed over how great she looked.

A third tweeted: “So wonderful to put the programme on and see Kym there.”

“Welcome back Kym. Please could you tell me where you got your jumper from? You look lovely in it,” added a fourth.

Another wrote: “Nice to see Kim looking so well, welcome back.”

Earlier this year, Kym shared that her 76-year-old father had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

In June, her family discovered that his cancerous cells had spread to his spine, ribs, pelvis and left leg.

Kym called in to the show via video chat earlier in October where she gave viewers an explanation for her time off.

“You might have noticed I’ve not been around much since the end of July – well there’s been some very good reasons for that,” she said.

“I think it’s fair to say the last few months have been ridiculously busy with one thing or another for me and my family.”

“I’ve been off for the last few weeks and one of the reasons for that is because I want to be here for my dad and I need to be here to support my family and it was absolutely the right choice to make,” she added.

Meanwhile, it’s been a busy month for Kym.

The former Coronation Street star tied the knot to her army major fiancé, Scott Ratcliff, 33, on October 16.
