Kym Marsh has revealed her mum got roped into appearing as an extra on last Friday's 'Coronation Street' and 'EastEnders' crossover episode
Kym Marsh wasn't the only member of her family appearing in the 'Coronation Street' and 'EastEnders' crossover episode on Friday night (19.11.10).
The actress - who plays Michelle Connor in the ITV1 soap - travelled to Albert Square to film the one-off scenes for Children In Need alongside her mum, who got roped in as a cast extra.
She explained: "It was fun filming 'East Street', the 'Corrie' and 'EastEnders' crossover for last Friday's Children In Need. I went down to the 'EastEnders' studios with Beverley Callard (Liz McDonald), Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw), Jimmi Harkishin (Dev Patel) and Helen Worth (Gail McIntyre) and the cast were very welcoming.
"Did anybody spot my mum serving behind the counter in Minute Mart? They roped her in as an extra!"
Despite the scenes being fun to film, Kym admitted she wouldn't fancy her alter-ego's chances if she were to get involved in a fight with feisty 'EastEnders' barmaid Kat Moon.
She added to new! magazine: "I did a scene with Jessie Wallace and Shane Richie, who play Kat and Alfie
Moon, where Kat thought my character Michelle was after her man. I wouldn't like to put money on which of them would win in a fight!"
