Katherine Kelly: ‘TV weddings have put me off’

Coronation Street star Katherine Kelly says her six weddings as an actress mean she’s in no rush to tie the knot in real life.

The 29-year-old, who plays newlywed Becky McDonald in the soap, split from her boyfriend of five years, actor Oliver Williams, earlier this year.

She told Closer magazine: “As for getting married, I don’t have strong feelings really – I can take it or leave it. I’ve already been married six times in my career as an actress – twice as Becky – so I think a wedding of my own might feel like too much work!”

Becky’s marriage to pub boss Steve McDonald has seen her become a stepmum to Steve’s daughter Amy, but Katherine, who turns 30 next month, said she’s not feeling broody yet.

She said: “I’ve never been a person to wish for stuff – I just take it as it comes. What is happening now to me in my career is amazing, so I dwell on the things that are happening, rather than the things that aren’t, because what’s the point? It doesn’t make them happen.”

The full interview is in Closer magazine, out now.
