Kym Marsh asked 'permission' to date pal's ex
Kym Marsh is upset that Stephanie Waring has criticised her publicly for dating her ex-boyfriend Dan Hooper, insisting she asked her if it would be OK before they went out
Kym Marsh insists she asked Stephanie Waring for permission to date Dan Hooper.
The 'Coronation Street' star was recently blasted by the 'Hollyoaks' actress for romancing her former boyfriend - with who she has three-year-old daughter Lexi - just months after they split, but Kym is "upset" her personal text messages were made public and insists her love rival hasn't told the full story.
She said: "Of course I'm upset. The personal texts that were shown were very selective ones and if anyone had seen the full conversation they might feel a little bit differently.
"What she failed to mention was that I did ask her via text if she wanted me to back off from Dan but she didn't reply.
"I also asked her if she wanted me to go and see her so we could talk about it, but she declined the offer.
"I am gutted she went to a paper instead of taking me up on my offer of chatting face-to-face about it. I actually said to her if she still loved him she should do something about it."
The brunette beauty also insisted she isn't friends with Stephanie and the only contact they had was when they met up at showbiz events.
She added to OK! magazine: "I've been painted as the bad person but I know I've done nothing wrong and neither has Dan.
"It's been made out I'm a really good friend of Stephanie's and that's not the case. Stephanie and I are not friends, she's someone I know because she works at 'Hollyoaks'. I wouldn't know where she lives, I've never been on a night out with her and I've never met her for dinner.
"I've seen her at a few showbiz events and there was one time I saw her in Manchester, but it wasn't like we'd arranged to meet. I've done nothing wrong."
