Kym Marsh pulls out of Morning Live return after struggling from 'horrendous' hernia operation as Oti Mabuse steps in
KYM Marsh pulled out of her return to host Morning Live as she admitted she's still struggling from a "horrendous" hernia operation.
The former Coronation Street star was replaced by Strictly professional Oti Mabuse today after being forced to delay her comeback.
Admitting her recovery has taken longer than expected, Kym appeared on the BBC One show from home this morning.
"I am really surprised," she told her co-host Gethin Jones.
"There was more to it than we originally thought.
"I am someone who likes to get up and about and do things for myself.
"It's really difficult having to sit and do nothing, it's horrendous.
"One of the problems of having a hernia is it's really restrictive and stops you doing exercise you want to do.
"This is just killing me now.
"But I am listening to my body, you have to, it's important. I'll be there soon."
The 44-year-old has been in discomfort for several months and has been on a waiting list for the op for nearly a year.
It was thought Kym would only miss one week of her new show.
Kym, who played Michelle Connor in Corrie for 13 years, revealed to her fans last year that she had a hiatus hernia.
The fitness fanatic said the condition was causing her agony and extreme heartburn — and had stopped her from giving it 100 per cent in her gym work-outs.
Morning Live launched in October 2020, filling the slot after BBC Breakfast.
