Kym Marsh opens up about her star-studded wedding to Dan Hooper

It sounds like Kym Marsh‘s upcoming wedding to fiancé Dan Hooper is going to be a star-studded affair.

The Coronation Street star is planning to have several bridesmaids and wants her co-star Brooke Vincent to be one of them. Kym admits that 22-year-old Brooke – who plays Sophie Webster on the soap – is practically a member of the family.

‘I love Brooke,’ says Kym, 38. ‘She was dead pleased [when I asked her], she’s like a little sister to me.

‘I adore her, she’s just the sweetest girl. Dead nice with an absolute heart of gold. She’d do anything for you.’

Aw! Although there will be quite a few members of the Corrie cast at the do, Brooke is one of the few to land a role as bridesmaid as the others will be members of Kym‘s family and other close pals.

‘[My daughter] Emilie will definitely be one and I’m hoping that my sister Tracey will too, although she doesn’t really like having her picture taken or like to be in the limelight,’ the bride-to-be explains.

‘I think I’ll have about ten bridesmaids as I’ve got so many close, loyal friends – I will dress them all in the same colour, though!

‘Although I don’t think I’m going to ask anyone else from Corrie to be my bridesmaid. I’ve also got some close male friends too, like Antony Cotton, who’ll be involved.’

Sounds exciting! Kym and personal trainer Dan – who announced their engagement in December after seven months of dating – are planning to tie the knot next year but they don’t think it will be a huge affair, despite the celeb guests.

‘Our wedding will be beautiful,’ says Kym to OK! magazine. ‘We’ve got several venues to look at but we’re not going to have a big, grand wedding – no way!

‘We want it to be low-key and then we’ll have a big party in the evening. There will be a lot of people from Corrie there.’

Er, can we get an invite please, Kym?
