Kym Marsh has said that the press exaggerate how much the cast of Coronation Street get paid.

The actress will return to her role as Michelle Connor in the autumn. Writing in her New magazine column, Marsh said that she was "delighted" to hear her co-star Michelle Keegan had signed a new contract.

Reports claimed that Keegan had agreed a new year-long deal which would see her £90,000 salary increased to six figures.

"I'm delighted that my friend Michelle Keegan has signed another year-long contract at Corrie, but the reports of a six-figure sum made me smile," Marsh said. "The press always exaggerate our salaries."

The 35-year-old added: "While Corrie is very generous, we're certainly not on footballers' wages."

Meanwhile, Marsh and fiancé Jamie Lomas will team up to take part in an upcoming episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?.

"We'll do our best to raise as much as possible, but general knowledge isn't my strong point," she admitted. "However, Jamie has been swotting up and has even downloaded the app to his phone."
