Heartbroken Corrie star Kym Marsh has begged fiancé Jamie Lomas to come clean after cheating claims
Sobbing uncontrollably, Kym Marsh tried to pull herself together after her fiancé Jamie Lomas was accused of cheating last week. But instead of demanding he pack his bags, the Coronation Street star, who has a one-year-old daughter with Jamie, is determined to make their relationship work.
But, first she had a question for him: ‘How many other girls are there?’
The former Hollyoaks actor, 32, was sensationally pictured last week, lying on a bed in his hotel penthouse suite with his arm around pretty brunette Katie Moores. The 26-year-old claims that Jamie kissed her on the lips and insisted he was single.
While Kym, 36, who plays factory boss Michelle Connor in the soap, is trying to put on a brave face for the cameras, friends say she’s devastated. ‘Kym’s in bits,’ says a close friend. ‘Jamie’s been saying he was set up and is adamant nothing happened with Katie.’
‘But’ the friend says ‘although it looks like Kym’s standing by him, she’s asked him to tell her if any other girls will come out of the woodwork – especially from when he was away working in LA.’
The scandal began after Lomas was accused of kissing a 26-year-old single mum in his £189-per night hotel room.
Care worker Katie, who lists “Jamie Lomas” among her activities and interests on Facebook, met him while she was on her sister’s hen do in Leeds with 15 friends. She was leaving the city’s Oceana nightclub at around 3am when she and a pal began chatting to the actor. Katie said Jamie – who has a 1-year-old daughter Polly with Kym – invited her and 2 other girls to join him and a friend in their hotel.
Katie, from Manchester, said: “My friend spoke to him first because she recognised him from Hollyoaks. Me and two friends got in a black cab with Jamie and his friend. I was pretty drunk. We went to the Park Plaza and he was in the penthouse.”
The pair kissed and spent the night drinking and play fighting on Jamie’s bed, it’s claimed. ‘The kiss wasn’t anything like a passionate kiss – just a stupid drunken one,’ says Katie, who took a few snaps at the Park Plaza hotel. ‘It just happened. I don’t remember who started it. It wasn’t very long, probably about 20 seconds. After that we were just messing about play fighting.’
The incident allegedly happened just 2 days after Jamie was photographed enjoying a family day out at Disneyland Paris with Kym, 35. Jamie is said to have made little mention of the Coronation Street actress, who he’s set to marry later this year.
‘We were just drinking and talking about people off the soap. At one point he did say he was single. My friend knew he was with Kym but I didn’t,’ Katie, a mum of two, told The Sun newspaper. ‘He didn’t really say much about Kym – only that they’d just got back off holiday. He didn’t want to talk about her.’
Jamie Lomas and the couple’s agents refused to comment on the hotel pictures. It’s not clear who took the pictures, or why Katie’s looking away in both, but they appear to have been snapped on a mobile phone camera.
