20 APRIL 2009 Smiling and with their arms clasped around each other, soap stars Kym Marsh and Jamie Lomas had their first big night out since losing their baby son after he was born 18 weeks prematurely in February.
Looking pretty in a strapless cream and gun metal grey mini dress at a TV awards ceremony, the 32-year-old Coronation Street star stayed close to her boyfriend all night at the Irish TV Awards in Dublin.
"Jamie kept kissing and hugging Kym or putting his arm around her. He seemed like a real rock," one onlooker told the Daily Mirror.
Kym was there with her 28-year-old Hollyoaks spouse who'd been nominated in the favourite male soap star category.
In the event Jamie missed out on a trip up to the podium, but the pair still seemed to be enjoying themselves as they socialised with Corrie cast members such as Michelle Keegan and Simon Gregson.
