Kym Marsh talks being an ‘Army wife’ as new husband Scott was ‘sent away’ days after wedding

Kym Marsh and her new husband Scott Ratcliff are as loved up as ever after tying the knot last year.

The couple tied the knot in an emotional ceremony held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in October, but waited until December to head off on a romantic honeymoon to Sandals Grenada Resort & Spa for a week of sun.

Opening up about newly married life and their honeymoon to OK!, Kym, 45, spoke about the reality of being an army wife, as her husband, Army Major Scott, 34, was called away just two days after their wedding.

When asked about married life, Kym told us: "It’s been really good. Well, I say that, but we got married and then two days later Scott was sent away for two weeks and we weren’t expecting that!"

Former Coronation Street star Kym continued: "That was a bit grim, but it’s just part of being an army wife. It felt like on the honeymoon I could properly celebrate being Mrs Ratcliff!"

Scott explained why he had to head away from his new wife, adding: "I do three terms per year at (military academy) Sandhurst and every term I’ll go away for two weeks to run an overseas training exercise."

The Army Major continued: "I’m in a job now where it gives us a bit more stability. On honeymoon it felt like we could appreciate the fact we’re husband and wife. It was a wonderful feeling."

The couple are now home from their week in the Caribbean, telling OK! they wish they were still soaking up the sun.

Scott explained: "We wish we were still there! We’ve been away as a couple a few times but it was always with other people, so to have our own space and time was bliss."

While Kym added: "It was lovely. Sandals is an adult-only resort, so it was nice to just have adult time.

"We’re both really busy and having children means life takes over sometimes – it’s quite easy to forget who you are as a person – so it was nice to just do what we wanted for a change."

Kym, is mum to David, 26, Emilie, 24, and Polly, 10, while Scott has Renée, six from a previous relationship.
