The father of two soap stars has praised his actress daughters and teased more busy times ahead for their characters.
Amelia Flanagan is April Windsor’s Emmerdale character and has been the center of an online trolling scandal in recent weeks.
Isabella Flanagan, Isabella’s sister, plays Hope Stape in Coronation Street. Hope recently set fire at Alina Pop’s flat after Tyrone left Fiz to Alina.
Their dad Chris has praised his talented daughters on Twitter and teased fans that there is still “lots more to come”.
After receiving many compliments from viewers, he shared photos of his daughters on their respective soaps.
Chris said: “So proud watching these two tonight, they’ve had such a busy few months and still lots more to come for Hope on Corrie and April on Emmerdale. Thanks for all the lovely comments!”
His tweet was immediately met with more praise for the young girls.
One person said: “Amazing little actresses. You must be so proud. Two really difficult storylines acted with such maturity.”
Another said: “Chris, lost for words at the really outstanding acting from Amelia and Isabella. They have both obviously worked so hard to get their stories spot on. Well done.”
And a third added: “They are absolutely incredible, such amazing talents and a total credit to you, can’t wait to see what’s to come.”
This week, April discovered that it had been Cathy Hope who had started the online campaign against her.
She told Cathy: “You’re my mum’s little sister, you’re my aunt, you’re supposed to look after me!
“It’s wrong and it’s horrible, I’m telling my dad, Rhona and the school what you have done. I am telling everyone you bully!”
A devastated April added: “You made me say it! I wish you were there instead of my mum.”
Meanwhile, tearaway child Hope has been causing trouble again as she set fire to Alina’s flat.
It led to an eventual break-up between Alina and Tyrone, with Alina saying goodbye to Weatherfield.
It’s not just the two Flanagan girls who are soap stars though.
Isabella actually stars alongside their brother William in Coronation Street, as the little lad plays Chesney’s son Joseph Brown.
