Kym Marsh's boyfriend Scott Ratcliff has slammed a troll after being accused of breaking lockdown social distancing rules to be with the former Coronation Street actress.

After spending seven months on tour in Afghanistan, the 31 year old Army Major finally reunited with the star on Thursday evening, 7 May.

Thrilled to finally have Scott back in her arms, 43 year old Kym, who is supporting the OK! Closet Clear Out campaign with Refuge, took to her Instagram feed to share a loved-up snap of them together.

The pair, who have been dating since 2018, looked ecstatic with massive smiles planted on their faces as they held up glasses of celebratory champagne.

Looking their best for the occasion, Scott wore a smart navy blue waistcoat and jacket while his significant other donned a star-themed dress with a plunging neckline.

Kym, who recently defended Victoria Beckham for furloughing staff from her fashion brand, captioned it: "Finally having a date night with my man! 7 months apart but it’s amazing to see how our relationship has grown despite the distance. [sic]

"In these difficult times make time for each other. Grab the dinner or a drink together. Love each other. Appreciate each other. Let’s all do these things and we will all emerge stronger. Xx," alongside a red heart emoji.

While many of her fans were delighted at seeing them back together again, one particular follower thought Scott broke government-sanctioned social distancing rules to be with her.

They wrote: "Not isolating separate then," [sic] alongside a crying emoji.

Clearly upset by the comment, Kym's beau quipped: "Absolutely not. Are you? I (Scott) quarantined on camp for 7 weeks before returning to the UK, then went through COVID screening before coming home." [sic]

He added: "I'm clean. Where does your hatred and sadness come from?"

The couple received support from Kym's army of followers, with one person writing: "Wow @marsh_kym you look amazing and your man is, some people are so jealous. You deserve every bit of happiness, as we all do even the trolls! There bit of happiness is that one day they wont been to be so horrible/rude/nasty… hope you enjoyed your date night." alongside several red heart emojis.
