Coronation Street's Kym Marsh on the big twist in Michelle Connor's exit
Coronation Street's Kym Marsh has weighed in on the big twist in Michelle Connor's exit.
The actress announced earlier this year that she would be taking a break from the cobbles, after more than a year on the soap.
And with her final scenes set to air later this month, Coronation Street have revealed a bit more about what to expect from Michelle's final scenes.
The fan favourite recently managed to get ownership of the bistro as part of her revenge against Robert Preston, after she discovered that he had been cheating on her with (and was also engaged to) Vicky Jefferies.
According to Metro, she will accept an offer from a mystery bidder later this month - and is less than thrilled when she comes face-to-face with the new owner: Ray Crosby.
"She’s furious about that. Of all the people to buy the bistro, it’s him, the slimeball! He’s the last person that she was expecting. She doesn’t take the news very well and contemplates trying to change things but it’s too late. He’s the last person she’d want to sell the bistro to," Kym explained to the publication.
She added that Michelle smashes the place up when she finds out, as she is "in a bad place" after everything in recent weeks - and the dramatic scenes set to play out on Christmas Day.
"I’m just going to smash the place up! She knocks everything off, throws things and smashes the place up. For her it’s everything mounting up," she explained. "The events of Christmas Day, and everything afterwards. she doesn’t even think it’s that much about Ray as everything else is going on. She’s in a bad place at that point."
