Coronation Street star Kym Marsh has called in police after an internet troll set up a fake Facebook page in her daughter's name.

The stranger set up a profile apparently belonging to Kym's 14-year-old daughter Emily May using pictures copied from her real Facebook page and sent Kym a link on Twitter.

Kym tweeted: "Help get this weirdo off Facebook! Could be dangerous."

She added: "They are stealing pics from her actual Facebook. I'm gunna give it to the police."

Kym has two children, Emily and David, 16, from her relationship with her ex Dave Cunliffe.

She also has 15-month-old daughter Polly with actor fiance Jamie Lomas.
