Kym Marsh sells house

Kym Marsh has sold her house after slashing the price.

The 'Coronation Street' actress has been trying to sell the five-bedroom house, which she shared with ex-husband Jamie Lomas, for the past two years, and was eventually forced to reduce the asking price by £110,000 in order to shift the pad.

The mansion, situated in the town of Worsley in Greater Manchester, was originally on the market for £650,000 but the 40-year-old star was forced to cut the price six times before it was eventually snapped up by buyers who paid £539,950 for the family home.

Kym - who plays Michelle Connor in the ITV soap - split from Jamie back in 2013 and had been hoping to sell their home in order to "start a new life" with her fiancé Dan Hooper, although their relationship has also recently ended.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "She wanted to sell the house to start a new life with Dan. Now they've split, she manages to flog it."

Meanwhile, the star recently jetted off to Spain with her parents, son David and she and Jamie's daughter Polly to "de-stress" following her latest break-up.

She said: "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."
