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.
