It comes after Kym revealed she was fearful of some of the play’s scantily clad scenes, given the play’s steamy origins.

She told The Sun: ‘Nobody needs to see this body right now.  I’m 45, I’ve had four children and I’ve not had an easy year with my fitness — it had to go on the back burner.’

Kym continued: ‘There is one particularly racy scene, and I must admit that’s a bit daunting. I’ve never had to do intimate scenes like that, so this is all a very new thing for me.

‘I just need to feel confident doing it, so I’m working hard at the gym to try to get in shape.’ 

The Coronation Street star explained that she was nervous for the racier scenes in the film as she’s baring more flesh than she ever has on stage before.

The star revealed her husband Scott Ratcliffe is comfortable with her sharing the racy scenes with Oliver. 

She explained Scott feels safe in their relationship so he’s supportive of her work and focuses on making her feel confident. 

Eight-time Oscar nominee Glenn famously played the disturbed publishing company editor opposite Michael Douglas’ Manhattan attorney Dan Gallagher in Fatal Attraction.

The critically-acclaimed erotic psychological thriller amassed $320.1M at the global box office (from a $14M budget) as well as six Oscar nominations, including best picture.
