When Kym Marsh marries fiancé Jamie Lomas this August, she needn’t worry about what her big day will cost since she’s reportedly agreed a deal with a magazine for exclusive pictures of the wedding that’s worth £500,000.
It hasn’t been revealed which magazine has snapped up the rights to coverage of Kym and Jamie’s wedding, but if I had to guess, I’d say it’d be either OK! or Hello. Having said that, she of course writes a regular column for new! magazine, so maybe they’ve splashed out on exclusive rights to the piccies.
However, the fact that there’s even going to be a wedding is something of a surprise, given that Kym – who plays the role of Michelle Connor in Coronation Street – was recently furious with Jamie for being photographed frolicking in a hotel room with another woman…
But it seems that following the incident, Jamie, who formerly played the role of Warren Fox in Hollyoaks, has been desperate to prove to Kym how committed he is to her and to their family.
At the time, Kym revealed, “I was annoyed, upset and angry – any woman would be.
“I was annoyed he had put himself in that situation, I was annoyed that there were girls in his room.
“But I trust him and there’s no way he would cheat. I’ve forgiven him for that mistake and he knows he was wrong.”
A source said to be close to the couple told People, “The past few weeks have been make or break for Kym and Jamie.
“There was a lot of anguish and hurt but they are ready to walk down the aisle.
“This is the commitment they want to make to each other. But it’s full steam ahead for Kym now and everyone’s getting really excited about the big day.”
However, the source added, “Summer weddings are booked up years in advance so Kym and Jamie may have to have the official ceremony in a register office before moving on to the reception.
“But the magazine obviously wants glitz and glamour so it’s going to be an event to remember.”
