Just two weeks ago Kym confirmed that she had quit Coronation Street after 13 years of playing Michelle Connor to pursue other acting opportunities, but insisted the door will be left open for her return.She told The Sun: When I was lucky enough to be offered four episodes I could never in my wildest dreams have thought I’d be here 13 years later.It’s been an incredibly difficult decision but it feels like the right time for me to explore some other roles.

Speaking about her role in the show, Kym said: I am delighted to be getting back on stage and joining the cast of Elf this December.Elf is an iconic Christmas film and having seen the musical myself last year I am very excited to be part of this fun and heart-warming family show.Kym will take on the role previously played by Zooey Deschanel in the film, and Kimberley Walsh when the musical played in the West End.
 
Based on the iconic film of the same name, the musical first ran in 2010 on Broadway, directed by Casey Nicholaw. It has a book written by Bob Martin and Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers and Hairspray) and an original score by Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin. Elf had its West End premiere at the Dominion Theatre in 2015, starring Ben Forster as Buddy. Last year's arena tour starred David Essex and Martine McCutcheon.
