Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent has reunited with real life cousin and cobbles co-star Ellie Leach, sharing the moment in a new picture.
The Sophie Webster star took to her Instagram stories to show the sweet moment, captioning the post, ‘Little pop in to see Ellie Leach on her shoot’.
Ellie, who played Faye Windass on the ITV soap, smiled alongside cousin Brooke as she did a peace sign and took a selfie in the mirror.
The reunion comes ahead of Ellie’s appearance on the new series of Strictly Come Dancing – her first TV role since leaving Corrie.
Ahead of her exit from the ITV soap, Ellie reflected on joining the show, and revealed the important piece of advice that cousin Brooke, who had joined the show in 2004, had given her.
‘When I first started Brooke, my cousin, she was like, “Just be yourself, everyone will love you.” I think that’s what I’ve done, I’ve just been myself.
‘I think that’s why I’ve been here for so long because I feel like I’ve been myself but I’ve also made this part of me.
‘Corrie will always be a part of me and Faye Windass will always be a part of me.’
While Ellie left the show earlier this year when character Faye left to live in Slough with daughter Miley and her dad Jackson, Brooke left the role of Sophie Webster in 2019.
Brooke thrilled fans earlier this year when she returned to Coronation Street to pay the cast and crew a visit, bringing son Mexx along for the day out.
‘Today I took Mexx back to Corrie’, she wrote on Instagram. ‘Last time I was here he was about to give birth to him!
‘3 years have passed, everything is different and yet everything is still the same.’
Though they are no longer co-stars, being family gives Ellie and Brooke a close bond, and Brooke is sure to be cheering Ellie on as she takes to the Strictly dancefloor.
