Charlie Quirke – son of Pauline Quirke
Pauline Quirke is one of the UK’s most famous actresses known for her roles in Birds of a Feather, Broadchurch and Emmerdale.
And like his mum, son Charlie opted to go down the acting route.
Over the years, the 26-year-old has appeared on Casualty and Loose Women alongside Pauline to talk about his career.
He got his big break in 2014 when he joined the cast of the revived series of Birds of a Feather playing Travis Stubbs.
Phoebe Dynevor – daughter of Corrie’s Sally
Actress Phoebe Dynevor is best known to her fans as Daphne Bridgerton in the brand-new Netflix series.
She is the daughter of Coronation Street star Sally Dynevor, who plays Weatherfield favourite Sally Webster, reports the Mirror.
Phoebe, now 25, started her acting career aged just 14 when she began playing the role of Siobhan Mailey in BBC’s Waterloo Road, and she also starred in Prisoners’ Wives.
The star has followed in her mum’s footsteps ever since, most recently landing a major role in the costume drama.
The mum and daughter duo have very similar features, which their fans have pointed out.
One commented on Twitter: “Sally/Sally from Corrie is Daphne/Phoebe’s, mother! Obsessed! Always thought Sally was stunning.”
Another shared: “The fact that Sally Webster is Daphne Bridgerton’s mum IRL blows my mind. #Bridgerton.”
Noah Jupe – son of Corrie’s Katy Cavanagh
Coronation Street star Katy Cavanagh’s real-life son is already enjoying a glitzy acting career.
The actress, who is famous for playing Julie Carp on the ITV soap, is proud of her 15-year-old after he landed a role as Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant’s son Henry Fraser in Sky Atlantic’s The Undoing.
It’s not the first major role the teenager has landed, as he previously appeared in A Quiet Place.
EastEnders’ Patsy Palmer’s kids
Former EastEnders star Patsy Palmer’s eldest son Charley Palmer Rothwell has already made it big in America.
The actor, 28, is famous for making an appearance in the 2017 film Dunkirk, as well as blockbuster Legend alongside famous UK actor Tom Hardy.
Charley also starred in BBC drama Our Girl – which features Michelle Keegan – as Baz.
Patsy, who played the role of Bianca Jackson on EastEnders, also has two other children who are blessed with talent.
Her son Fenton Merkell, 20, is making it big time as a model, signed to Select Management in Los Angeles.
Fenton’s sister Emilia, 18, is also a successful model.
It appears Patsy is one proud mum as her brood of children have sky-rocketed to fame, just like she did on the BBC soap.

Jake Roche – son of EastEnders’ Shane Richie
Shane Richie’s second-eldest son Jake previously featured in Emmerdale back in 2010.
Jake landed a TV role as Isaac Nuttall, but admitted his famous dad, who played Alfie Moon in rival soap EastEnders, did not help him get the part.
He said: “When I was auditioning they didn’t know who my parents were and I’d also auditioned twice before, so they obviously didn’t care about that or they wouldn’t have turned me down.”
