'Coronation Street' star Kym Marsh has revealed she is now a cage-fighting fan after going to a match with her fiancé Dan Hooper and her eldest children David and Emilie
Kym Marsh is a fan of cage-fighting.
The 'Coronation Street' star attended the match alongside her fiancé Dan Hooper and her eldest children, Emilie, 17 and David, 19, and despite enjoying her day, the 38-year-old actress - who plays Michelle Connor in the ITV soap - has admitted she found the fight very "brutal" to begin with but by the end she was converted and is now a fan.
She said: "I went with Dan and the kids - but not Polly. I think people would have something to say if I took a three-year-old child to a cage-fighting event!
"They really go for it - it's unbelievable. I was watching it through my fingers to begin with, but by the end of it I was really into it. I think I've become quite a fan."
Meanwhile, Kym also revealed her daughter - who was booted off 'The Voice' in the blind auditions - has been working on a single with some friends who she attended the cage-fighting event with.
Writing in her column for OK! magazine, she shared: "We also went along with Damon Hess, who Emilie is working with on her single, and his girlfriend Imogen. We've become really good mates since he worked with Emilie. They're really great people and I love them to bits."
