Marsh: Fight scene left me bruised
Kym Marsh (Michelle Connor) said she was battered and bruised after filming a fight
Kym Marsh said she was "battered and bruised" after filming a catfight with co-star Alison King.
Corrie's Michelle Connor gets into a scrap with Carla Connor when the barmaid finds out her sister-in-law knew for a long time that Tony Gordon was behind the murder of Michelle's brother Liam.
Kym said of the fight: "Me and Ali just went for it, so the next day we were battered and bruised all over. I must be getting old because I couldn't move the next day. My back was killing me."
She went on: "We were actually fighting, dragging each other around. I mean, you don't actually pull each other's hair, but all the other physicalities of it are true."
However, the fact that Kym and Ali actually enjoy each other's company worked in their favour when filming the scenes.
Kym said: "It's much easier to be nasty to someone in work when you're friends in real life.
"It was all back to normal the second after we'd filmed the fight, we cuddled and then we went for a drink. That was it."
