Former Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh has removed a trace of now-ex-husband Scott Ratcliff from her Instagram page after news emerged last week that the duo had parted ways after 18 months of marriage.
The Hear’Say frontwoman, 46, has deleted her former army officer flame from her bio, which used to read: “wife to Scott”.
Kym – who has been married three times, tying the knot with Scott in 2021 – has instead changed the text to read: “Mum to David, Emilie, Polly and Archie [heart emoji] YaYa to Teddy, Polly and Clay. Actor, presenter, singer”.
Last night, the star appeared to have ditched her wedding ring in her first public appearance since news emerged of their break-up, as she was papped on the red carpet of the Pride of Manchester Awards.
Posing with her hand on her hip for photographers, Kym beamed as she showed off her bare ring finger, with just one sparkly pear-shaped gemstone ring on her middle finger instead.
The mum-of-four has children David, 27, and Emilie, 25, with ex fiancé David Cunliffe, as well as daughter Polly, 11, with former partner Jamie Lomas (the pair also welcomed son Archie in 2009 but he tragically died shortly after the birth).
Following reports of Kym and Scott’s separation, a source has now claimed it came as a result of the distance and difficulties in keeping their relationship going.
Although the split is amicable, they point to the differences – and distance – between the pair, who tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Sandhurst military academy in October 2021.
“They had a trial split earlier this year after their first anniversary. Friends thought it was just a glitch and they would get back together but it just hasn’t resolved itself,” said the source.
They continued: “Scott is a lovely bloke and Kym hopes they will remain friends. He has his career down in Essex. Kym has her family, career and life up North and sadly nothing can change for either of them.”
Another insider said the couple’s packed diaries could have been a huge problem for them.
“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.”
