Kym Marsh has confirmed she is dating her personal trainer Matt Baker and has revealed she's "feeling good" about their romance
Kym Marsh is "feeling really good" about her romance with Matt Baker.
The 'Coronation Street' actress has confirmed she is dating her personal trainer - who she was previously linked to in 2013 - and is hoping their relationship will stand the test of time following her split from fiance Dan Hooper earlier this year.
She said: "I've got some great news - Matt Baker and I have started dating.
"We've known each other for three years, we both have mutual friends and we've been training together in recent months - it's just been a natural progression.
"I know people speculated a while back but we weren't actually together then, but now things have changed slightly.
"It's second time lucky for us. The first time around it didn't work out as I wasn't ready as it was so soon after my marriage to Jamie [Lomas] ended.
"However, we're both feeling really good about it this time around."
The 39-year-old actress isn't worried about the 13-year age gap between herself and Matt and thinks they are good for one another.
She wrote in her column for OK! magazine: "We've been positives in each other's lives - Matt's a very good influence on me and vice versa, and we care about each other a lot.
"We are taking things slowly and seeing how it goes.
"I know there's a 13-year age gap, but I've got to say, Matthew may be younger but he's actually ore mature than me so the age gap isn't a problem."
