Families on soap dramas are notoriously hard to keep up with. Whether it's the Mitchell's on BBC One's EastEnders or the Platt's 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 and Charley Webb

Jamie Lomas 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.

Joe and Shauna Swash


Stacey Solomon's boyfriend, 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.

Nick and John Pickard


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?
