A 'Coronation Street' fan has a tattoo of Kym Marsh on his arm.
The actress - who plays feisty Michelle Connor in the ITV1 soap - explained she met the "diehard" obsessive at a recent book signing, and discovered he had also adorned his body with images of former 'Corrie' star Tina O'Brien.
Kym explained: "There was a guy who was a diehard 'Corrie' fan called Steve - he's got a tattoo of me on one arm and one of Tina O'Brien, who played Sarah Platt, on the other.
"He's got another massive one of Tina on his tummy!"
Meanwhile, the brunette star blasted critics who think 'Coronation Street' features too many lesbian and gay characters as "idiots".
She added in her new! magazine column: "A critic called Brian Sewell has criticised Corrie for having too many lesbian, gay and transsexual characters. What an idiot! It's 2011 for God's sake and, like all soaps, 'Corrie' has to reflect real life.
"I think Brian should keep his pathetic, bigoted opinions to himself."
