Kym Marsh's hernia operation made her feel very anxious but she says it's a big relief to finally get it over and done with.

The actress underwent keyhole surgery after months of discomfort and stayed in hospital overnight following “complications”.

The star says she was bothered by pain for some time and decided she had to go under the knife to cure it once and for all.

Now she is looking forward to getting back in the Morning Live studio with Gethin Jones – and getting her trainers on.

Writing in her OK! column, the former Coronation Street favourite penned: "It's an inguinal hernia that has been bothering me for some time and it's quite common, especially with people who exercise a lot.

"It's nerve-racking being put under anaesthetic, but it's a relief to have it done and I'm hoping it won't be long before I'm training again, as I've really missed it.

"All being well, I'll be back in the studio with Gethin from next week!"

On Monday she appeared with him via Zoom from her bedroom and discussed her recovery.

The 44 year old says she is still a bit sore and talked about how she was finding it difficult to homeschool her daughter Polly, nine, whilst mostly bedbound.

She told her co-host: "It turned out to be slightly more than they thought it was going to be. So to clear up… I do have a hiatus hernia but that wasn't the operation I was having.

"I've had two hernias in my groin, I thought I only had one and I ended up having two. So it's more painful than I thought."

Kym is recovering while teaching Polly – and it's not been easy.

She said her partner Scott Ratcliffe has been a huge help and says this lockdown has been a little easier than the 2020 one.

She said: “I think most parents will feel my pain when I say it is not easy trying to homeschool.

“The great thing is this time round – certainly from my experience with Polly’s school – that there seems to be much more structure and teachers are doing Zoom chats and everything. Even lessons with the children when we can.

“But then there is more pressure to finish those particular tasks for that day. I am trying my hardest to get through but obviously now throw in this operation, it’s not going to be easy.”
