Double trouble: Kym beamed as she posed alongside her Coronation Street co-star Samia Longchambon
Kym flashed a beaming grin and appeared to be over the drama of last week, when Polly was suddenly struck down with Croup.
She revealed she took Polly straight to Salford Royal Hospital when she was left 'gasping for air' at her family home.
Recalling the 'terrifying' incident, Kym divulged she 'couldn't sleep' in her OK! magazine column when doctors revealed her daughter was suffering from Croup.
Croup is a respiratory infection that is usually caused by a virus, the infection leads to swelling in the windpipe and as a result, it interferes with normal breathing.

'On Wednesday night at 11.30pm, Polly just started gasping for breath,' the Corrie beauty recalled of the incident.
'I had to rush her over to Salford Royal Hospital. It turned out she'd got Croup. It's something that children of the age of three can get but Polly is six.
'It was horrible and her cough sounded like she was a sea lion. I didn't get to bed until 5am and even then I couldn't sleep. The staff put Polly at ease because she was terrified. It was really horrible to see.'
The doctors sent Kym and Polly home with a course of steroids to tackle the Croup and she is said to be on the mend now.

Polly's dad Jamie Lomas was not told about her health scare because he was in I'm A Celebrity, sources claimed.
The Hollyoaks actor, 42, reportedly had no idea about the incident as it happened while he is in the Australian jungle.
'He hasn't been told while he's in the jungle,' a source told The Sun. 'Because it happened while Jamie was in the jungle, it's not something he'd know about.'
MailOnline has contacted an I'm A Celebrity representative for comment.
