The baby son of Kym Marsh and Jamie Lomas has died after he was born 18 weeks premature.

Kym, 32, who plays barmaid Michelle Connor in Coronation Street, gave birth to Archie Jay Lomas yesterday (February 11) but he died moments later.



In a statement, the actress said: "Archie is our beautiful angel and we will miss him so much. Thank you all for your support."



A spokesman for the ITV1 soap said: "Archie Jay Lomas was born 18 weeks prematurely on Wednesday night in hospital - he passed away a few seconds later."



The former Hear'Say singer had been working on the programme during her pregnancy and was due to take maternity leave in the summer.



She announced the end of her marriage to former EastEnders actor Jack Ryder last March and confirmed her new relationship with Jamie, who plays Warren Fox in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks, when they appeared together in public at a soap awards ceremony in June.

Admitting your ignorance will make others admire you. Anyone can profess expertise. It takes someone with real courage to expose their vulnerability. The skills you acquire will enhance your earning potential. Anyone who pokes fun at your lack of knowledge is projecting their own insecurities onto you.More
