“There was a counsellor on set at all times when we were filming the scenes.'
Kym said the support at home from her children, David, 22, Emilie, 18, and Polly, five, has helped her through having to re-live the difficulty of losing her son Archie eight years ago.
Kym and her former partner Jamie had announced in 2009 that they were expecting a baby.
Their son, Archie Jay Lomas, was tragically born 18 weeks early and died shortly after birth. In a statement at the time Kym said: “Archie is our beautiful angel and we will miss him so much. Thank you all for your support.”
She told OK! Magazine: “The best tonic was to go home and see David, Emilie and Polly, which reminded me how lucky I am to have my children.’
She said she was “eternally grateful” for the support, admitting she wanted to make her “angel” proud.
Kym posted a sweet message reading: “Just want to say thank you so much to everyone for all your messages of support for our upcoming @itvcorrie storyline.
“We have all worked so hard on this and we hope that we can help make a difference both to families going through the same thing and to the wonderful organisations that try to raise awareness and to fund research and support.
“I am eternally grateful to all of those who have supported me personally through this and I hope I have done my angel proud.”
Meanwhile the star has revealed that she’s taken a big step with her partner of two years, Matt Baker.
Kym exclusively revealed that they’re buying a house together, and said she couldn’t be happier.
“Matt and I are buying a house together – that’s a big commitment to each other,” Kym explained.
“It’s a big deal to us.”
