Kym Marsh, Dan Hooper Split Caused By ‘Hollyoaks' Star Stephanie Waring?

Kym Marsh's split from fiancé Dan Hooper was caused by his “meddling” ex Stephanie Waring, a report has claimed.


The ‘Coronation Street’ actress called off her engagement to the personal trainer earlier this week after a series of reported bust ups about ‘Hollyoaks’ star Stephanie, who Dan was with before he started dating Kym.

A source told The Sun that Stephanie has been “constantly calling” Dan, with whom she shares a two-year-old daughter Lexi Grace.

“Stephanie just won’t leave Dan and Kym alone,” they said.

“Her behaviour has worn them both down, and had a really negative impact. No one wants to deal with hassle like this from their ex.”

Stephanie also sent out a cryptic tweet after news of Kym and Dan’s split broke which read: “Feeling a bit…” alongside a laughing face and cheeky monkey emojis.

While she has since denied that the tweets were connected to the news, a source close to Stephanie told MailOnline that she feels like the split is “karma”.

“He's the father of her child so despite whatever has happened she does want the best for him but the past year has not been pleasant dealing with Kym,” they said.

“As much as she wants the best for him, it's all a bit too raw right now. Dan has rubbed the whole thing in her face a lot.

“Although she feels sorry for him, it seems like karma,” they added.

Stephanie has a complicated relationship with Kym and Dan as she slammed the couple when they first got together last year.

In a lengthy message she posted on Twitter, she wrote: "I had to endure finding out that the father of my child had moved onto someone else, someone I considered to be a friend, only six weeks after we had separated.

"This new dalliance was then flaunted through online social media sites which was hurtful and humiliating.

"I'm trying to move forward for my daughter's sake. As a single mum, all I can do is focus on my family and work hard.”

Kym is still yet to comment on the reports about her relationship with Dan, but he has taken to Twitter to insist they are just taking a break from each other.

He tweeted: “Nothing's broken off. We are having space and a break. False headlines. Please leave us alone with the horrible comments.”
