Soap stars such as Sally Dynevor, Shane Richie and Patsy Palmer all have famous children.

They say good looks run the family, but for these famous faces, it appears stardom is also in the genes.

After the success of Netflix’s Bridgerton this year, many TV fans were shocked to find out Phoebe Dynevor - who plays Daphne - is actually the real life daughter of Sally Dynevor.

Sally has played Sally Webster in Coronation Street since 1986, but her 25-year-old daughter has also had roles in many shows.

Phoebe landed her first acting gig at 14-years-old when she starred in ­Waterloo Road, and later starred in Prisoners’ Wives.

So, let’s take a look at some other soap stars who also have famous children.

The 15-year-old actor previously appeared in A Quiet Place and 2016 BBC drama The Night Manager.

Noah’s mum Katy played Julie Carp in Corrie from 2008 to 2015 and was introduced as a new girlfriend of Kirk Sutherland. She was also revealed to be Eileen Grimshaw's half-sister.
