But who is Amelie and where have you seen her before? Here’s what you know…

How old is Amelie Bea Smith?

Amelie Bea Smith is 10-years-old and lives with her family.

Viewers might recognise her for voicing the cartoon Peppa Pig, which she took over from actress Harley Bird on Valentine’s Day this year.

Her agent Mark Jermin said at the time: "Amelie has been a huge fan of the show since she was little, so voicing the title role is like a dream come true and she's thrilled to become part of the voice cast."

While Harley also wished the star luck at the time, saying: ""The people that work on Peppa Pig have become like a family to me and they've given me some unforgettable memories.

"I wish Amelie the best of luck in the role and am looking forward to starting the next chapter in my life."

It has since been reported that Amelie could make ‘£1 million in year’ after bagging the role of Peppa Pig.

The founder of Candid Publicity told Metro.co.uk in February: “With how much of a juggernaut Peppa Pig is, I can definitely see Amelie making at least a million within the next year or so. The brand shows no signs of slowing down and provided she’s got a good deal, she’ll be making millions for years to come!"
