KYM MARSH SEES DOUBLE
MADAME TUSSAUDS BLACKPOOL UNVEILS CORRIE STARS NEW WAX FIGURE


TODAY Kym Marsh met her match at Madame Tussauds Blackpool, where the Coronation Street star unveiled her brand-new wax figure.

She could barely believe her eyes when the curtain dropped to reveal her Coronation Street counterpart, Michelle Connor, not only looking back at her but talking too  quoting some of the Corrie characters most famous one-liners. 

Kym excitedly posed side-by-side with her new wax figure, toasting to the occasion, in none other than Madame Tussauds Blackpools Rovers Return Inn beer garden  a fun new addition to the attraction, building on the existing fully-licenced pub.

Following Michelle Connors dramatic storyline in Coronation Street, it was only right that Madame Tussauds Blackpool chose the Corrie beauty to take place in the attraction in the company of fellow Corrie legends, Bet Lynch, Hilda Ogden, Jack and Vera Duckworth and Ken and Deirdre Barlow.
