The children of many of the world's biggest soap stars have followed in their footsteps to pursue acting careers – and landed themselves some major TV roles.

TV shows we all love and know have even featured soap stars' famous offspring without us knowing.

Charley Palmer Rothwell, Phoebe Dynevor and Noah Jupe have all secured deals with huge shows and films in recent years.

Here's a look at some of the young generation of stars following in their parents' footsteps…

Coronation Street star Katy Cavanagh's real-life son is already enjoying a glitzy acting career.

The actress, who is famous for playing Julie Carp on the ITV soap, is proud of her 15-year-old after he landed a role as Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant's son Henry Fraser in Sky Atlantic's The Undoing.

It's not the first major role the teenager has landed, as he previously appeared in A Quiet Place.

Shane Richie's second-eldest son Jake previously featured in Emmerdale back in 2010.

Jake landed a TV role as Isaac Nuttall, but admitted his famous dad, who played Alfie Moon in rival soap EastEnders, did not help him get the part.

He said: "When I was auditioning they didn’t know who my parents were and I’d also ­auditioned twice before, so they obviously didn’t care about that or they wouldn’t have turned me down."

Kiki has thousands of followers on TikTok, which suggests fans are already loving her.
