Kym Marsh says calls for Coronation Street to return to its comedy roots are "frustrating"

Coronation Street’s Kym Marsh has revealed she finds calls for the soap to return to its comedy roots “frustrating”.

In her column for OK! magazine, Kym opened up about Corrie producer Kate Oates leaving the show after two years.

“Following the news of Kate’s departure some people have said that Corrie needs to return to its comedy roots, which is frustrating as there are still lots of comedy moments on the show!” she wrote.

“We’re doing more high drama but that’s true of all soaps. We need to move with the times and target audiences of all ages,” Kym added.

“You can’t please everyone and the ratings speak for themselves – they’re higher now than they have been for a long time!”

In the same column for OK!, Kym also confirmed that she’s split from boyfriend Matt Baker, explaining: “Sadly, the reports are true.

“We still care for each other, we’ll stay friends and I’m sure we’ll be a part of each other’s lives in the future.

“Now we each just want to focus on our families, our work and our friends as we move forward.”
