Ex-Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas has not worked since he quit the cobbles and is trying to improve his chances of landing new roles by attending acting lessons.

But his daughter Scarlett has beaten him to finding a new job, as she has been signed by online fashion house Boohoo to be one of the faces for the new kidswear range.

The seven-year-old was born with showbiz in her blood, so it comes as no surprise that she is already showing her talent.

Scarlett Thomas, daughter of Coronation Street stars Ryan Thomas and Tina O'Brien, is the female face of BoohooKids, the Manchester fashion retailer's first childrenswear range.

Yeah you are Scar!

Proud dad Ryan took to Instagram to show off his daughter, he wrote: “So proud of our little girl.”

Many fans rushed to congratulate Ryan, but one fan was not happy.

They wrote: “Beautiful little princess u have but sometimes just wish it wasn’t so easy for ‘famous children’ to get further than the child who needs a break!’’

Carol Kane, joint CEO of Boohoo, said: “Ryan Thomas is a lifelong friend of the brand and so we are delighted to be able to make Scarlett Thomas the face of the girlswear collection.

“She looks beautiful in all the pieces.”

It seems Boohoo are not the only company Scarlett has impressed however, with her devoted mum bursting with pride as well.

Tina, who is known for her role as Sarah Platt on the ITV soap, said: “I’m really proud of Scarlett and everything she has achieved.

“Scarlett is represented by my casting agency ‘The Drama MOB Management’ which I own with my friend Esther and has cast for an Asda, Morrisons and Bensons for Beds TV commercial this year and her most recent job has been the the two modelling shoots for Boohoo.

“She recently performed at The Lowry Theatre with our drama school and she loved it.”

Scarlett was born in October 2008 after parents Ryan and Tina had been dating for five years.

But, a year after she was born Ryan walked out claiming he did not love Tina anymore.

However, things picked up for Tina, who went on to meet her now-fiance Adam Crofts.

They now have their own child together, Beau, 19 months, and it seems her and her former flame have since made amends.

With Ryan even becoming close friends with Adam and planning to attend their upcoming wedding.

Meanwhile, Ryan is again single after splitting with girlfriend Lana Martin as he chose a career over love.
