Kym Marsh insists there's "nowt better" than a cup of tea.

The 42-year-old actress was among thousands who were "rightfully shocked" that her "Coronation Street" co-star Lucy Fallon has never tried the hot beverage and has been doing her best to persuade her to give the drink a try.

Writing in her OK! magazine column, she said: "I was chatting to Lucy about the fact she's never drunk a cup of tea. She mentioned it on Twitter last week and people were rightfully shocked. She says she can't get past the smell, but what's not to love about a brew?

"I told her she doesn't know what she's missing - there's nowt better than a cup of Yorkshire Tea and a Hobnob!"

Lucy made her confession on Twitter last week.

But Lucy - who plays regular Roy's Rolls cafe visitor Bethany Platt in the ITV soap - confessed she hates the way tea smells.

She tweeted: "It's just the way it smells I can't get onboard with it (sic)"

Georgia attempted to convince her to start making some beautiful brews, but her mind couldn't be changed.

She tweeted: "I'm genuinely sat here now with a massive brew, sniffing it Doesn't smell of much to me (sic)"

Several other fans took Twitter to question why the cobbles dweller isn't a tea drinker, resulting in Lucy admitting: "I feel like I've let everyone down x (sic)"

But one of her supporters said they think a brew "smells rank".

A delighted Lucy replied: "I agree!!! I can't stand the smell of it (sic)"
