Coronation Street Star Splits With Husband

by | 21 March 2008

Coronation Street actress Kym Ryder has split from her husband Jack, a former EastEnders star.

The couple said the split was "amicable" and Jack would continue to see Kym's children, according to a statement from ITV.

Nobody else was involved in the separation, they said. The pair had a trial separation a year into their marriage but later reunited.

Kym, who first rose to fame with Hear'Say, was 25 and Jack 20 when they married in 2002.

The ITV statement, issued on Thursday night, said: "With great sadness, Kym and Jack Ryder have decided to separate after seven years together.

"Their separation is amicable and they remain friends, with Jack continuing to see Kym's children, David and Emily."

The pair also requested privacy "in consideration of the children's emotional welfare".

Since joining Coronation Street, Kym has won a National Television Award, a British Soap Award and a TV Quick Award for her role as barmaid Michelle Connor.

Jack Ryder played Jamie Mitchell in EastEnders but left soon after the couple married.
