Kym Marsh wants to 'fix' relationship with Dan Hooper
Kym Marsh wants to try and "fix" her relationship with estranged fiancé Dan Hooper.
It was revealed last week that the 'Coronation Street' star and the personal trainer had called off their engagement and Kym has now confirmed they are on a break but haven't totally given up on their romance yet.
Writing in her OK! magazine column, Kym revealed: "You'll have read the reports that Dan and I have taken a relationship break and I'm sorry to say that the news is true. It's been a really tough and upsetting time. It was a really difficult decision for us both to make but something we both mutually felt we had to do, as we both needed some space ... We need to figure out where things have gone wrong and see if we can fix it - I hope that we can."
Dan has moved out of Kym's Manchester home but the pair have been in daily contact since he left.
The pair celebrated their one-year anniversary in April and got engaged last December and were due to marry next year.
Although it's been hard for Kym in the wake of the trial separation, the 38-year-old star has had the love and support of her family to help her through this difficult time.
She said: "My family has been really supportive, particularly my mum ... I'm very lucky to have them all taking care of me. My friends have been amazing too. I think the key during difficult times is to keep busy ... Little Polly's been a breath of fresh air ... she always has the ability to make me laugh and that's definitely a good tonic at the moment."
Kym has three children, 20-year-old David and Emilie, 17, from her relationship with childhood sweetheart Dave Cunliffe, and four-year-old daughter Polly, from her marriage to Jamie Lomas, while Dan has two children of his own, including daughter Lexi with 'Hollyoaks' actress Stephanie Waring.
