Kym Marsh has split from boyfriend Matt Baker after just six weeks of dating after deciding she wasn't ready for a relationship
Kym Marsh has split from her boyfriend.
The 'Coronation Street' actress has ended her romance with personal trainer Matt Baker, 24, after just six weeks, telling him she isn't ready to start a new relationship as she is still getting over her divorce from Jamie Lomas.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "It was just too much, too soon for her
"She has feelings for Matt but she was worried about rushing into a relationship.
"Kym explained how she felt. Matt was disappointed but he understands the timing just isn't right for her.
"For the moment, she wants to concentrate on work and her family."
The 37-year-old actress met Matt at her local gym in Worsley, Greater Manchester and they were friends for some time before striking up a relationship.
The former pop star's ex-husband Jamie, 33, is now in a relationship with model Chloe Peers, who is also 13 years younger than him.
Kym - who has two-year-old daughter Poppy with Jamie, as well as David, 18, and Emily, 16, from a previous relationship - was granted a divorce from the 'EastEnders' star earlier this month after she called the police when he allegedly flew into a drunken rage.
