Families on soap dramas are notoriously hard to keep up with.
Whether it’s the Mitchells on BBC One’s EastEnders or the Platts on Coronation Street, family affairs get more complicated week upon week, let alone year by year.
But as it turns out, sometimes the actors’ off-screen lives can take us by surprise, too.
For example, did you these soap stars are siblings in real life?

Jamie Lomas recently took part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, but fans are more used to seeing the actor on Hollyoaks.
But Jamie isn’t the only one in his family to take up a soap acting career, as sister Charley Webb stars as Debbie Dingle on ITV’s Emmerdale.
Jamie’s younger sibling, Danny Webb, was also the first ever Aaron Livesy on Emmerdale between 2003 and 2006, and Lucy Webb, 13, appeared as baby Jon Dingle between 2004 and 2007 when she was just tiny.
Something in the genes? We think so.

Stacey Solomon’s boyfriend has just finished his Extra Camp stint, but the former king of the jungle first made a name for himself hanging around Albert Square.
Joe Swash played Mickey Miller between 2005 and 2011, and real life sister Shauna played his on screen sister Demi, too.
Hollyoaks star Nick Pickard, who plays Tony Hutchinson, has been in the soap since it’s onset in 1995 [Wenn]

Tony Hutchinson has been a Hollyoaks favourite for a long time, and when Nick Pickard’s character met with his long lost on-screen brother, there was only one person for the job.
Between 2005 to 2010, John Pickard played Tony’s brother Dom. Can you spot the similarity?

Between them, brothers Adam Thomas, Ryan Thomas and Scott Thomas have taken up a lot of TV time.
Eldest Ryan played Jason Grimshaw on Corrie between 2000 and 2016. More recently, Lucy Mecklenburgh’s boyfriend has moved to Australia to take part in Neighbours.
Meanwhile Adam, who recently announced he’s expecting another baby with wife Caroline, currently played Adam Barton in Emmerdale.
