Kym Marsh: I'd like 'little' Harry Styles to play my toy boy in Coronation Street
Kym, 35, is keen for her character Michelle Connor to get a new boyfriend in the soap and thinks One Direction star Harry, 18, would be the perfect man for the job.
'I'd like her to have a toy boy! That would be really funny, as she's quite moral,' says Kym.
'I'd like to see her doing something a little bit daring and risqué.
'Little Harry Styles could play the toy boy - he's so cute! My daughter's got a big crush on him.'
But Harry's character would have to make sure he didn't get on the wrong side of factory manager Michelle if he were to move to the cobbles.
Kym admits her alter ego could end up giving her new love a black eye.
'She's so real. People can relate to her,' says Kym.
'She's feisty, and can go from being sweet to punching somebody in the face!'
