Corrie's Michelle to give up on Ciaran?
'Coronation Street's Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) is ''ready to give up on'' love interest Ciaran McCarthy (Keith Duffy) after he announces he could be moving away.
Michelle Connor is ready to "give up" on Ciaran McCarthy.
The 'Coronation Street' barmaid - played by Kym Marsh - is devastated to learn the hunk (Keith Duffy) is considering a move away from Weatherfield but can't bring herself to admit her true feelings for him.
Kym revealed: "This week, my Corrie character's love interest, Ciaran, announces he's going for a job interview in Scotland. Michelle tries to cover up her upset by being sarcastic.
"She's ready to give up on him at that point and decides there's no point in letting him know how she feels as he's going anyway."
Kym admits she wishes the unlucky-in-love widow - who has seen several romances end amid infidelities - was able to be honest with Ciaran, but understands why she is so afraid of getting hurt again.
She explained to new! magazine: "I think it's sad she feels she can't let her guard down, but she has had some terrible things happen to her, so it's not surprising. She's scared of getting hurt and tries to protect herself by not letting anyone in."
