In July 2003, Kym released her debut solo album, Standing Tall, which reached number 9 in the UK. It contained three solo songs and 12 other songs. Her third single “Sentimental” reached number 35 and that caused her to be dropped by her record label.

In 2008, as the character dominated more storylines, some fans began to grow weary of her and her behavior. The baby-swap storyline panned by critics and fans. In contrast, the 2017 stillbirth storyline and marsh’s performance received good reviews and was praised by Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society (SANDS). Kym, whose real son was also stillborn, said it was important for her to take on the storyline to raise awareness of the issue.
