Kym, who plays factory boss Michelle Connor in the ITV soap,accidently posted a link to a porn site on her Twitter page.

Coronation Street star Kym Marsh was left red-faced after she accidentally posted a link to a porn site on her Twitter page.

The 36-year-old soap star had intended to share a snap of her mother Pauline, but unintentionally directed friends and fans to an X-rated adult site instead.

It was not until people started to point out that she had sent them to porn site specialising in mums that she realised the gaffe.

"What are you talking about?" the confused star tweeted to  her 260,000 follower before a fan told her she had accidentally typed a dot before a message to her mum and Twitter had mistaken it for a link to a website.

"It's a rudey rudey site," one follower tweeted.

Another wrote: "Am I the only one who finds it hilarious that @msm4rsh has accidentally tweeted a link to a porn website? Imao! Bless you Kym! xx"

Marsh, also known as Kym Lomas, plays factory boss Michelle Connor in ITV's long-running soap. She quickly removed the link.

"How could I have done that and why would anyone want to point that mistake out to everybody," she wrote.

A friend told the Sun: "Kym didn't see the funny side of it being highlighted to everyone. If anything it will make her type a bit more carefully in the future."
