Following on from the wildly successful live episodes that EastEnders put on for their 30th anniversary, Corrie bosses have revealed that they're planning something similar.

Speaking about the upcoming live episode, Kym Marsh has revealed that she's terrified she might wind up swearing on camera.

And the mum-of-three, who plays popular character Michelle Connor in Coronation Street, also made sure to offer her support to Jo Joyner, who famously fluffed her lines when she blurted out "How's Adam?" during the #EELive broadcast.

Writing in her OK! column, she said: "Bless Jo, she's a fantastic actress and she shouldn't be beat up for it.

"It's going to be nerve-wracking and people are going to make mistakes - it could've happened to anyone."

Kym added: "It's just a good job nobody swore. When you make a mistake or forget your lines, you do swear, I'd have probably done!"

Kym, who missed out on Corrie's previous live episodes due to pregnancy, is desperately hoping to be involved in the story this year.

She said: "Corrie has a live episode coming up later in the year.

"I didn't do the last one as I was pregnant with Pol, so I'm excited about the prospect and I hope I'm in it - it's a great thing to do and I'm sure it'll give me an adrenaline rush."
