Kym Marsh says upcoming fight scene with Phelan on Corrie left her bruised
The actress said she was left a little worse for wear after shooting the scenes.
Kym Marsh’s Coronation Street character, Michelle, will find herself next on the list of Pat Phelan’s victims as the murderer returns to the street this week.
After his unwanted return, Phelan will have a serious confrontation with Michelle that results in a pretty nasty fight.
Well, turns out, shooting those scenes with actor Connor McIntyre left some pretty big marks on Kym’s body too, who says she was left battered and bruised afterwards.
“In the bistro, I’m being thrown around by Connor who’s a strong man and I had to throw myself on the floor,” she told The Mirror.
“It was very physical and I was bruised the next day. It was two solid days and it is always tiring filming quite emotional stuff.
“I was bruised. You do it but your body doesn’t realise it’s not really happening.
“But it was great as I’ve never played anything like this before.”
The fight escalates and Michelle eventually gets shot, but actress Kym is telling fans not to worry as she’s signed a new contract with the show.
“It was another first for me (being shot) and it’s good to get a bit of a challenge.
“But I’m really pleased to announce I’ve signed to Corrie for another year.”
Michelle’s fight with Phelan is due to air this week.
