Greenlit: Kym Marsh: Teen Mums and Me, Channel 5

Kym Marsh: Teen Mums and Me (1 x 60′) –  Kym Marsh, the actress and singer, goes back to her roots to uncover what life’s like today for the country’s teen mums. As the daughter of a teenage mum herself, Kym grew up on one of the poorest estates in Wigan and was just 19 when she gave birth to her son David – daughter Emily followed three years later and she struggled to get by, living on next to no money and sharing nappies with her sister. In this deeply personal journey, Kym will visit a number of Manchester teen mums to experience the day-to-day reality of their lives, the stigmas attached to being a young mother and how they manage to raise children when they’re attempting to juggle college, work and a social life. We have unprecedented access to Kym’s mum Pauline and alongside intimate family archive, we find out what life was really like for the Corrie star when she was in the same position as the young mums she’s interviewed.
