Why is Kym Marsh not on Morning Live?

MORNING Live has been pulling in viewers as BBC's new "post-breakfast" slot venture.

Usually presented by former Corrie actress Kym Marsh and ex-Blue Peter star Gethin Jones, it has proved popular with viewers – but Kym was missing from the show this morning. Here's why…

Why is Kym Marsh not on Morning Live?

In January, we revealed that Kym was undergoing a hernia operation.

The operation means that Kym has been forced to miss some of her appearances on Morning Live in recent months, and she was missing from the show again on March 24.

Mum-of-four Kym revealed: “I’m on medication for hiatus hernia, which means part of my stomach is protruding into my oesophagus.

“It gives me heartburn, so I take medication called lansoprazole.

“I posted a photo of myself in a sports bra last week as I’ve been trying to get back into exercise.

“I’m suffering from a hernia and it’s causing me pain."

The presenter had been in discomfort for several months and had been on a waiting list for nearly a year.

Kym had her surgery in January but suffered "a few infections" shortly afterwards.

She wrote in her OK! mag column: "The operation itself was a success, but I've suffered a few infections since and it's set me back.

"I'm hoping to speak to a physio who specialises in post-hernia operations as I really want to get back to exercising again."

When is Kym Marsh returning to Morning Live?

Kym hasn't announced when she'll be returning to present alongside Gethin.

Speaking in early February, she said: "I had an operation on my hernia last week. I'm doing OK now, but I hoped to recover a little bit quicker than I am.

"I did hit some complications afterwards as my blood pressure was very low.

"I also couldn't pee, which is apparently quite common after hernia operations, so I had to be kept in overnight.

"But thankfully I made a bit of a recovery and was able to go home the next day."

Who is filling in for Kym Marsh on Morning Live?

Although Kym has been away on March 23 and 24, her co-presenter Gethin Jones has been in good company.

On March 24, he was joined by Strictly star Janette Manrana.

And the day before another Strictly dancer, Oti Mabuse, presented alongside him.
