Kym Marsh shares sweet family photos after throwing glamorous Strictly Come Dancing party

Kym Marsh hosted a glamourous Strictly Come Dancing party and shared sweet photos of her family as they celebrated.

The actress took part in this year’s series of the BBC ballroom contest with professional dance partner Graziano Di Prima. The pair became the 10th contestants to be eliminated from the show earlier this month.

The week before her time on Strictly came to an end, Kym and Graziano had to miss the contest as they had both tested positive for Coronavirus. Kym also revealed that her dad David, who is fighting incurable prostate cancer, was rushed to hospital during the week.

Kym wiped away tears as she told host Tess Daly that her journey on the show had ‘kept him going.’ On the support from her family, Kym said “My dad has been so proud and it’s kind of kept him going.

“When he was in hospital last week, and obviously we weren’t here, all these guys sent him videos and it meant such a lot. My grandchildren are so proud.”

Now Kym has celebrated her time of the show with her loved ones by throwing a glitzy party at home. Complete with a balloon wall, neon lights and even a cardboard cut out of Graziano, the get-together looked super glam.
