'Coronation Street' actress Kym Marsh has filed from divorce from her 'EastEnders' star husband Jamie Lomas following allegations she had an affair with co-star Oliver Mellor

'Coronation Street' star Kym Marsh has filed for divorce from 'EastEnders' hunk Jamie Lomas.

The actress - who plays barmaid Michelle Connor in the hit ITV soap - reportedly filed divorce papers last week, citing her spouse's unreasonable behaviour.

The couple's one-year marriage has recently been rocked by rumours Kym, 37, cheated on Jamie, 33, with co-star Oiver Mellor, who plays Dr. Matt Carter.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "Kym has turned a corner and is now ready to move on. Jamie's behaviour has been bothering her for some time now. She feels she has no choice. She doesn't want a messy divorce - it must be as quick and as amicable as possible."

Kym - who has a two-year-old daughter, Poppy, with Jamie - is thought to have started a five-month affair with Oliver just five months after tying the knot with the former 'Hollyoaks' actor.

The couple hit the headlines earlier this month when the former Hear'Say singer called the police on her husband after he allegedly flew into an alcohol-fuelled rage.

A source said at the time: "I think Kym has known for a long time, in her hearts of hearts, that things weren't going to work out.

"The bust-up at their house a few weeks ago was the final straw. It left Kym frightened for her safety. She can't live like that."
