Kym Marsh has denied she's dating footballer Michael Chopra, saying the story left her "fuming".
The Corrie star said the report, which comes following her split from second husband, EastEnders actor Jamie Lomas, ruined her morning.
It came after Kym, who plays Street barmaid Michelle Connor, said she looked forward to "leaving behind the bad" in 2014.
Kym wrote: "I am beyond fuming! I have met that person ONCE!!!! And in the company of others! Don't understand the need to write untruths.
"What a way to ruin my morning."
Michael tweeted: "Met @msm4rsh once with @antonycotton and people try to make it out we are dating."
On New Year's Day, Kym wrote: "I want to say thank you to everyone of you for being supportive through hard times and for laughing with me in happy times happy new year."
"Cannot wait for 2014 leaving behind the bad and looking forward to the good. #newbeginnings," the mother-of-three had said.
