She won her first Inside Soap award when she was just six years old, so it’s no surprise that Amelia Flanagan’s acting skills run in the family.
The 13-year-old is best known for playing April Windsor in Emmerdale, but she traded Dales for pebbles while on Coronation Street to shoot.
Amelia herself did not film the scene, but her 11-year-old twin brother and sister Isabella and William Flanagan – who played Hope State and Joseph Brown – were involved.
Posing for a photo with child actor Jude Riordan, who plays Sam Blakeman, the group smiled at Rovers.
Jude’s mother shared the photo on his Instagram account and wrote: “Have a great day at Corrie Cast & Crew, have a great day with Team Flanagan #corriekids #soonbeintherovers #corrieemmerdalecrossover #friends #corrie #coronationtreet @ coronationtreet.”

Fans flocked to the comments, with some initially mistaking that Amelia had joined the soap.
One commented: “I thought Amelia was joining Corrie at the time!”
While another wrote: “Wow, what a great day you had a great day with the cast and crew! Good you caught up with William and Isabella as well as Amelia from Emmerdale.”
A third commented: “Absolutely loving this amazing photo of Jude of you all and the amazingly talented young actors you all are.”
Another spat out: “Lovely little gang. May they stay in Corrie long.”
Amelia is now part of a heartbreaking story involving her on-screen father Marlon – played by Mark Charnock – who suffered a stroke.
Last week, Marlon was urgently hospitalized as his health deteriorated.
Rhona left Marlon in the hands of her mother, who allowed Bear to take him to visit the allotment.
While he was there, however, Marlon’s cough got even worse and Liam took note, suggesting he take him to the hospital.
Rhona is furious with her mother for letting Marlon out and sick with anxiety when she learns Marlon has aspiration pneumonia at the hospital.
Will Marlon and his family ever get better?
