CORONATION Street viewers have noticed something familiar about on-screen cousins Joseph Brown and Hope Stape.
Are they related in real life? Find out here…
Who plays Joseph Brown and Hope Stape in Coronation Street and are they related?
Corrie fans of the soap have noticed a resemblance between Joseph Brown and the young actress who plays Hope Stape.
When Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) returned from Portugal with his son, after his mother Katy Armstrong (Georgia May Foote) was tragically killed in a car crash, viewers noticed Joseph was now played by a different actor.
Lucca-Owen Warwick, who originally played Joseph, is now played by ten-year-old William Flanagan.
The reason he looks similar to his on-screen cousin Hope, played by Isabella Flanagan, 10, is because she is his TWIN SISTER in real life.
Isabella took over the role of Hope from twins Faith and Nicole Holt who had jointly played the role since 2012.
William has played Joseph since the character was reintroduced in late 2017, he returned to Chesney's care after his mum was killed in a car crash.
The role had previously been played by Lucca-Owen Warwick.
What has their family said about them being on Corrie together?
Their proud dad Chris Flanagan took to Twitter to share his joy at them being on the soap together.
He tweeted: “Proud moment tonight, Will’s first scenes on Corrie and with his sister too!”
The pair have an older sister, Amelia Flanagan who plays Marlon Dingle's daughter April Windsor in Emmerdale.
