Kym Marsh thought she was finished with love

Kym Marsh was "done" with love before meeting her latest boyfriend.

The 42-year-old actress was set up with hunky army major Scott Ratcliff, 31, by her "Coronation Street" co-star Antony Cotton and although she is happier than ever, Kym admitted that after two divorces and a string of broken relationships, she had given up on love before meeting Scott.

She told Fabulous magazine: "I'd kind of gone: "That's me. I'm done. I'd reached the point where I just wanted a break from this nonsense. I wanted to go home and spend some time with my kids.

"We were messaging and then FaceTiming and spent two and a half hours talking every night, so we learned everything about each other. There was nothing to do apart from talk, so after three weeks I was like: "I know who he is."

"Normally when you meet someone, you might think aesthetically he's fit. After a few dates, you might end up in bed together. Whatever. But when did you get to know the person down the line?

"So the way we met was really weird, but it was a wonderful way of getting to know someone. And, yeah, by the time we actually met in person, I'd fallen for him."

Kym is completely smitten with her new man and joked she is worried he will leave her if he ever realises how gorgeous he is.
