Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh is set to take a break from the soap soon and peruse other acting opportunities, but the star has opened up about how she wishes she was a bit busier at the moment, to take her mind off her other half Scott Ratcliffe, who is currently out of the country on deployment with the military.
Writing in her weekly column for OK! Kym revealed: Im very quiet at work and thats a shame as Id rather be busy to take my mind off missing him.
But who is Scott Ratcliffe and where is he at the moment?
Who is Kym Marshs boyfriend Scott Ratcliffe?
Kym Marshs boyfriend, Scott, is 32-years-old and a major in the Parachute Regiment.
The Glasgow-born military man first met Kym in 2018 and the pair started dating in July last year, following her split from Matt Baker.
Kym and Scott were introduced by the stars celebrity pal Antony Cotton and got to know each other via FaceTime and texting before they agreed to meet for their first date.
Kym revealed to Fabulous magazine that she is in love with Scott, who she has now been dating for over a year: He has a smile that has the ability to light up any room. Hes got a lovely aura about him. People want to be around him, she said, And I love that hes not got any idea how fit he is.
Scott is now going on tour in the Middle East as part of his job and Kym has spoken of her concerns ahead of his deployment with The Sun: There is always anxiety, it is always stressful when he goes away.
There may not be an actual war threat currently but theres always a risk when youre in these dangerous places.
It wont be easy watching him go away, and I will worry until I see him again.
Before his deployment, Kym planned a series of surprises and fun days out for Scott to make the most of their time together before he had to leave the UK.
Marking their final moments together before Scott had to leave, Kym posted a tribute to him on social media saying: Make sure the ones you love the most know how you feel. Hold them tight, keep them in your hearts and never take them for granted, alongside a picture of her holding hands with her partner.
Now Kym will be trying to take her mind off missing her man by throwing herself into work projects and spending time with her family.
Kym is a mother of four children and became a grandma for the first time earlier this year when her eldest daughter Emily Mae welcomed a baby boy with boyfriend of two years, Mikey Hoszowskyj.
Kyms daughter Emily and her son David were born while the actress was dating builder Dave Cunliffe, before she found fame on the reality TV show Popstars in 2000. Following her split from Dave, the star went on to marry EastEnders actor Jack Ryder in 2002, but she admitted to cheating on him with actor Jamie Lomas in March 2009 and the couple were granted a quick divorce.
Jamie and Kym announced they were expecting a baby in 2009, a year after they started dating, but sadly their son Archie Jay Lomas was born 18 weeks early and died moments after birth.

‘Antebellum’ has a ‘Get Out’ vibe, but doesn’t live up to its twist

“Antebellum” is built around a provocative twist, and it’s a good one — as well as one that definitely shouldn’t be spoiled even a little. Once that revelation is absorbed, however, the movie becomes less distinctive and inspired, reflecting an attempt to tap into the zeitgeist that made “Get Out” a breakthrough, without the same ability to pay off the premise.
Originally destined for a theatrical run, the movie hits digital platforms trumpeting a “Get Out” pedigree in its marketing campaign, since there’s an overlap among the producing teams.
More directly, the film marks the directing debut of Gerard Bush + Christopher Renz, who have championed social-justice issues through their advertising work. The opening script features a quote from author William Faulkner, whose intent will eventually become clearer: “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”
If that sounds like a timely means of drawing a line from the horrors of slavery to the racism of today, you’ve come to the right place.
The story begins on a plantation, where the brutal overseers carry out grisly punishments against those tilling the fields. A few have just tried to escape, led by Veronica (Janelle Monae), and they pay a heavy price for their resistance, which does nothing to curb her defiance.
Also written by Bush + Renz, the script take too long before revealing what makes “Antebellum” different, but the middle portion — a “The Twilight Zone”-like phase when it’s hard to be sure exactly what’s going on — is actually the film’s strongest. (Even the trailer arguably gives away too much, so the less one knows, the better.)
The final stretch, by contrast, veers into more familiar thriller territory, and feels especially rushed toward the end, leaving behind a host of nagging, unanswered questions. That provides food for thought, but it’s also what separates the movie from something like “Get Out,” which deftly fleshed out its horror underpinnings.
Although the filmmakers (in a taped message) expressed disappointment that the movie wasn’t making its debut in theaters, in a strange way, the on-demand format somewhat works in its favor. In the press notes, Bush says the goal was “to force the audience to look at the real-life horror of racism through the lens of film horror. We’re landing in the middle of the very conversations that we hoped ‘Antebellum’ would spur.”
“Antebellum” should add to that discussion, so mission accomplished on that level. Monae is also quite good in her first leading film role (she did previously star in the series “Homecoming’s” second season), but otherwise, most of the characters remain underdeveloped.
