The couple are finding love difficult while Jamie is away in America
Former Hollyoaks actor Jamie, 31, flew to LA early last month and is due back at the end of March – but Kym hates being separated from her man.
‘It’s a tough time for their relationship,’ a friend tells the Daily Mirror.
‘Only time will tell if they come through it.
‘The combination of the distance between them and the stress Kym is under at home has led to several arguments over the phone and on Skype.’
Kym and Jamie are parents to 10-month old baby Polly and they both have children from previous relationships.
The Coronation Street star admits that The Notebook Of Love – a Twitter page that posts quotes about making partnerships work – is something she can relate to.
‘I think some of it is relevant to our relationship,’ says Kym, 35.
‘Such as: “Without respect, love is lost. Without caring, love is boring. Without honesty, love is unhappy. Without trust, love is unstable.”
‘Obviously, it’s hard having a young baby and working full-time while Jamie is away, but I also Re-Tweet things I consider good advice generally.’
