Tina penned lovingly: "Oh my heart, how is my little girl 13! Happy Birthday my darling Scarlett."

And she added: "Right ok can time slow down now please?"

Ryan, who played Jason Grimshaw in the soap, said: "Happy 13th Birthday to my baby girl."

In 2019 Tina told us that Scarlett was keen to work in musical theatre.

Tina told us: "From the age of three she started singing so she started singing before she showed any interest in acting.

"She used to say 'I don't really fancy the acting but I like the singing' and she used to sing Castle On A Cloud from Les Mis.

"A teacher sent me a video of her singing it and I thought 'oh my gosh she's actually really quite good.'

"She's got a lovely singing voice."
