Speaking in a candid chat to The Sun’s Fabulous magazine, the star opened up about falling for Matt after previously stating that she was ‘done’ with men.

The couple were introduced by her co-star Anthony Cotton, with the pair building their relationship by talking for hours at a time via FaceTime and texting, before finally coming face-to-face three weeks later. 

After revealing that she had already ‘fallen’ for him by the time they met, Kym said of Scott: ‘Yeah, it’s love’. ‘He has a smile that has the ability to light up any room. He’s got a lovely aura about him. People want to be around him. And I love that he’s not got any idea how fit he is.’

But with an 11-year age gap, the former Hear’Say singer addressed the inevitability of her partner being hailed as her ‘toyboy’.

‘It’s actually quite insulting to him,’ she fumed. ‘Because he’s a very intelligent, mature, articulate man who absolutely knows where he wants to be in life.’

Kym has been dating Scott since July last year following her split from Matt Baker, who she had been dating for two years. 

The star was previously married to ex Hollyoaks favourite Jamie Lomas between 2012-2014. 

Gushing: 'Yeah, it’s love'. 'He has a smile that has the ability to light up any room. He’s got a lovely aura about him. People want to be around him'

Before that she was wed to former EastEnders star Jack Ryder, 37, between 2002-2009.

Addressing her failed romances, she shared: ‘I’m a huge romantic but I’ve been unlucky in love. My mum and dad have been together since my mum was 18 and the problem with that is that me and my sister are always looking for my dad. And he doesn’t exist because, well, Dad’s Dad!’

Meanwhile, there was recent joy in the soap star’s life when she became a grandmother for the first time after daughter Emilie Cunliffe gave birth to a baby boy this week.  

The soap actress joined her daughter in the delivery room and served as her birthing partner, which they previously revealed was always going to be the case because they ‘do everything together’.
