Kym Marsh has thanked fans for their kind words after celebrating 10 years on Coronation Street.

It's hard to believe 10 years have passed since the former Hear'Say singer swapped the stage for the screen to play Michelle Connor on the cobbles.

Kym was inundated with messages of congratulations from fans following her decade milestone.

She later wrote: "I am truly overwhelmed by all of your messages today. Thank you thank you thank you so so much."

Kym's anniversary comes as she revealed she previously thought about quitting the soap.

Kym has featured in some of the soap's central storylines as Michelle in recent years.

"I thought about it for a long time," Kym told The Sun on Sunday. "It was obviously a huge decision.

"My contract was expiring in June, and so the time to leave would have been now. Plus, of course, I didn't know if they wanted to keep me either."
