Kym Marsh believes family home was visited by the ghost of her son Archie on his birthday


Kym Marsh has claimed she was visited by the ghost of her son Archie, who tragically died seven years ago.

The Coronation Street star lost her son with ex Jamie Lomas moments after he was born, 18 weeks early.

But spookily, Kym's five-year-old daughter Polly has faced some paranormal experiences.

Speaking on Loose Women on Monday, she told viewers how she marked the anniversary of Archie's birth and death on February 11 with candles and balloons - but this year the boy seemed to visit Polly in her room, while she was downstairs eating dinner with son David.

The 40-year-old recalled: "This particular night I had got home late from work and I was eating and next thing we hear, jumping up and down from Polly's bedroom. So I'm thinking, Polly's awake. I sent David up, 'David go and see Polly, tell her to get back in bed'.

"So he goes up, opens the door, came down, said Polly's still asleep. Next thing we hear this jumping, it's like someone's jumping on the floor upstairs. And then David went, 'Mom, look!'.

"And the chandelier underneath the room was shaking."

She added: "The next thing we hear is a child crying. And it was not Polly, it was not Polly's cry. David's eyes came out on stalks... we were all really freaked out. There was no other explanation for it."

She said the incident occurred on Archie's birth minute.

However, while she admitted the encounter was "weird", Kym said she was not scared, instead thinking: "This is Archie, he's come to say hello and tell us he's okay."

Archie also seemed to visit Polly when she was just 18 months old.

Kym recalled the moment when her daughter sat up, pointed into thin air and told her: "Mommy, Archie, see him, see him!"
