'Coronation Street' actor Ben Thompson admits he finds having Kym Marsh play his on-screen mum ''difficult'' because of how attractive she is
'Coronation Street' actor Ben Thompson finds working alongside Kym Marsh "difficult".
The 18-year-old actor - who plays Ryan Connor in the ITV1 soap - admitted he finds having the sexy star play his on-screen mum "difficult" because of how attractive she is.
He told BANG Showbiz: "It's fabulous working with her and I love Kym (Michelle Connor) to pieces but trying to maintain a mother-son relationship is very difficult sometimes, as she's obviously a very attractive woman. The age gap between us actually isn't even that big!"
While his co-star Kym is engaged to former 'Hollyoaks' actor Jamie Lomas, Ryan explained he finds it hard to meet girls because he enjoys hanging out in "old man pubs".
He added: "I don't even get any fan mail from the ladies. Don't get me wrong, I wish I did but if I've had any it's definitely got lost in the post.
"I suppose if I went out to different places I might get a bit more attention but I just tend to sit there in old man pubs. In an ideal world, they'd be throwing themselves at me!"
