The 'Coronation Street' actress has been waiting to change her tresses until she had a break in filming on the ITV soap, but her seven-year-old Polly - who she shares with 'Hollyoaks' star Jamie Lomas - was less than impressed with the results of her long-awaited cut.

She said: "I've got a new hairdo and I'm really happy with it. I've gone quite a bit darker and I've had a fringe cut in. I had to wait until I was out of continuity with filming at 'Corrie', so I thought I might as well have a big change while I could.

"I love my new look but when I got home from the hairdressers last week Polly took one look at me and cried. She said, 'I hate it, it's horrible hair - it's too dark.'

"I said, 'Come on, now. Stop it.' It make me laugh - she'll get used to it."

Kym - who also has kids Ryan, 23, and Emily 21, with ex Dave Cunliffe - will be involved in a big car chase stunt on this week's 'Corrie', and she admits it was "quite scary" to film, but she, like her character Michelle Connor, would do "anything" to protect her kids.

Writing in OK! magazine: "I was driving the car and had to replicate what the stunt driver had been doing while saying my lines, which was quite scary, but I think that added to the stress of the scene.

"I must admit it took a few takes. You'll have to stay tuned to see what happens and who dies, but I can totally relate to my character's instinct to protect her kids, as I'd do anything for mine."
