Kym Marsh splits from husband Scott Ratfcliff 18 months after tying the knot

Kym Marsh has reportedly called time on her marriage to Scott Ratcliff after 18 months of marriage.

Kym tied the knot to Army Major Scott Ratcliff in October 2021 in a stunning ceremony at Sandhurst.

But, just months on from Kym’s Strictly Come Dancing stint – where she was teamed up with Graziano Di Prima – she and Scott, 34, have ended things.

Their busy schedules are said to be the reason behind their split as the pair were only seeing each other twice a week.

While starring on Strictly, Kym, 46, had rehearsals throughout the week followed by live shows at the weekend.

Elsewhere, Scott is largely based in barracks down south while Kym resides in Cheshire – making things “impossible” for them.

A source alleges that the pair had a trial separation earlier this year in the hopes of fixing their marriage, but it didn’t work.

“They both really tried to make it work, but the cracks have been there for a while and they were only getting to see each other for one or two days a week at the very most,” they told The Sun.

“Kym’s been so busy, and last year Strictly meant even her weekends were stacked up along with weekdays rehearsing.”

The source added: “It’s very sad for all involved, but they’ve decided it’s time to tell their family and friends and focus on the future — which means filing for divorce. They’re hoping to keep things as amicable as possible. Hopefully time will help to heal things.”

OK! have contacted Kym’s representative for comment.

Waterloo Road star Kym met Scott in 2018, with the pair going on to wed three years later.

Their special day was exclusively covered by OK! and it was a very emotional day for all involved.

Speaking to us at the time, Kym told us what her highlight of the day was.

“Walking down the aisle with my dad,” she said.

“I wanted him to walk me and he managed to do the entire length of the aisle, which I didn’t expect him to do. When I saw Scott and how handsome he was in his uniform, it was just like, ‘Wow’.”

Kym’s dad Dave was diagnosed with incurable prostate cancer in 2021.

Recalling another special moment with her dad, the actress said: “We shared the car journey together and I held his hand and we had a chat. He said I looked beautiful. Both he and mum were so excited. He said it’s the wedding they couldn’t wait for as they adore Scott, and he was happy to give me away to him.”

Kym’s first marriage was to EastEnders star Jack Ryder, whom she wed in 2004.

Divorcing seven years later, the Corrie actress went on to marry Jamie Lomas in 2012.

They ended things two years later.
