In a new chat with Prima magazine, Kym has told all of her role on the show as dinner lady Nicky Walters.
Speaking to the magazine, Kym said: “My character is really feisty. She’s a mum of two and a dinner lady at the school.
“I love that you never know what to expect from her: one minute, she’s making somebody laugh; the next, she’s getting really angry or upset.”
The star added: “Without giving too much away, I think there’s a lot that people will relate to.”
Her children Preston and Tonya are pupils attending the school where she works which is sure to be a catalyst for drama.
It comes as Kym’s co-star Angela Griffin praised her for being like ‘superwoman’ in a chat with OK!
Angela revealed: “She’s so lovely. She was like Superwoman juggling everything with Strictly, filming for Waterloo Road and her family.”
When the series kicks off with a new school year, a peaceful protest turns into a school riot and the events of the day will have huge ramifications for everyone involved.
Across the term, Waterloo Road’s teachers and parents are going to have to learn on their feet as they try to navigate the ever changing social landscape – from teen homelessness to the cost of living, being LGBTQ+, racism, sexism, mental health and everything else facing young teens today.
Amongst the chaos, the students, faculty and parents still make time for friendships, fun, and a few romances.
