Kym Marsh has found love again with her "soulmate" co-star Samuel Thomas a year after the breakdown of her third marriage.

The pop star-turned-actress, 48, has revealed she's in a relationship with Samuel after meeting him while they were working on a production of '101 Dalmatians The Musical' together and she's now made the romance Instagram official by sharing a picture of the pair kissing.

Alongside the snap, Kym wrote: "Met the most amazing man ever! Sometimes the most unexpected things happen at the most unexpected times. @samuelthomasuk I love you #beautiful #soulmate #loveyou."

Samuel replied to her post by commenting: "I love you".

He also added a picture of the pair together on his own Instagram account, writing: "I didn’t expect you, but here you are. I love you."

Kim replied to the post: "Ditto. The best things happen unexpectedly. Love you too."

The new romance comes a year after Kym split from her third husband Scott Ratcliff with the former couple parting ways in May 2023 - just 13 months after they tied the knot.

An insider previously told The Sun newspaper that Kym's relationship with Scott broke down because they were both so busy while the screen star was taking part in TV talent show 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The source said: "They both really tried to make it work, but the cracks have been there for a while and they were only getting to see each other for one or two days a week at the very most ... It’s very sad for all involved."

She was previously married to actor Jack Ryder - the father of her kids David, 29, and Emilie, 27, from 2002 until 2009 and then to 'Hollyoaks' star Jamie Lomas. Kym is mum to a 13-year-old daughter - Polly - with Jamie.
