Kym Marsh 'recharging batteries' after split from fiance

Kym Marsh has been "recharging her batteries" following her split from Dan Hooper.

The 'Coronation Street' actress confirmed that she and the personal trainer have decided to call time on their relationship for good last week and she's since jetted off to Spain with her parents, son David and daughter Polly to help her to get over her woes.

She said: "We're staying in a villa as it's more private. People often recognise me when I'm on holiday and I usually don't mind it, but sometimes you just want some private time and I just want to chill out and have a rest.

"I needed to get away from the stress and recharge my batteries after breaking up with Dan. It's a difficult time when you split from someone, it's hard for everyone concerned and our families too. It's been a stressful few weeks but I'm taking care of myself and de-stressing as I begin the final year of my thirties."

The 40-year-old actress - who celebrated her landmark birthday on the weekend - confessed she's not thrilled about turning 40 but is hoping she has plenty of good times ahead of her.

She added to OK! magazine: "I'm not overly impressed about nearing 40, but I was dreading my thirties and they weren't as bad as I'd thought, so hopefully my forties will be the same."
