Morning Live host Kym Marsh will miss the first week of her new show to have a hernia operation, it is claimed.

Kym, 44, is reportedly scheduled to have surgery just as the new series of the show starts on Monday, 25 January.

A stand-in presenter is now being sought to replace her to host the show alongside Gethin Jones, 42, it is alleged.

The former Coronation Street star is said to have been in pain for several months and had been on the waiting list for the past year.

A source told The Sun: “Kym has been trying to have the operation for a while now as the problem she has is causing her quite a lot of discomfort.

“She finally got a slot and then the dates for Morning Live moved slightly meaning they clashed.

“She’s gutted to be missing the first week of the second series alongside Gethin but she really needs this sorting."

They added that Kym, who played Michelle Connor in Corrie for 13 years, will be back "fighting fit" as soon as she can be.

Kym, revealed to her fans last year that she was due to have surgery on her hernia.

The presenter, who is a huge fitness fan, said the condition was causing her agony and extreme heartburn.

She also explained it had stopped her from giving 100 per cent in her gym work-outs.

Kym, a mum-of-four, said: “I’m on medication for hiatus hernia, which means part of my stomach is protruding into my oesophagus.

“It gives me heartburn, so I take medication called lansoprazole.

“I posted a photo of myself in a sports bra last week as I’ve been trying to get back into exercise.

“I’m suffering from a hernia and it’s causing me pain.

“I’m still going to the gym but I’m not able to lift weights or go as hard as I normally would.”

“The doctors have suggested physio, but it’s not getting better and my schedule is so packed.

“I’m going to book surgery to have it removed.”

Morning Live, which launched in October 2020, features guests discussing medical issues and cooking.

A BBC source told The Sun: “We hope she will join the show from home via Zoom.”
