Corrie's Kym Marsh makes a fresh start following divorce proceedings

After the disintegration of her marriage to EastEnders actor Jamie Lomas, Kym Marsh has vowed to make a clean start.

Kym started dating Jamie – dad to her daughter Polly, 2 – in 2008 but they split in October after she was accused of a five-month fling with former Coronation Street co-star Oliver Mellor, which they both deny.

The soap star took to Twitter yesterday to reveal her plans and thank everyone for their support.

‘There’s a hell of a lot of nonsense written about me but just sometimes the press do get it right #movingon,’ Kym, 37, posted.

‘And they are Bob on when they say my tattoo means new beginnings.’

Kym has a cloud of butterflies inked on her lower back and has also just got a new piece of artwork on her foot that reads: ‘Everything happens for a reason.’

Mum-of-three Kym, whose son Archie was stillborn in February 2009, is now concentrating on caring for Polly and teenagers David, 18, and Emily, 16.

‘thanks for all your support. Ignore idiots!’ she tells fans, ‘I am happy! I am taking care
of my children and They will ALWAYS be 1st with me and my family x.’
