Ellie Leach and Brooke Vincent
One of the most popular soap opera plot twists is discovering that characters are secretly connected to one another, but it does happen in real life. It appears to be a recurring theme in British soap operas, with Coronation Street being one of the more renowned examples.
In real life, Brooke Vincent and Ellie Leach, who play Sophie Webster and Faye Windass on the programme, are cousins. Vincent has been a cast member since 2004, and she was ecstatic when Leach was cast in the role in 2011.
