    Until not too long ago there were two more brothers (twins?) in Emmerdale and Shameless (LUKE and ELLIOT TITTENSOR respectively). Luke, who played mechanic DAZ EDEN (the role that Aaron Livesy now occupies), was fired after getting convicted of some criminal affray off-set. Elliot plays CARL GALLAGHER in the scuzzy Manc-based comedy drama.....

    If you want to go right back there was MORRIS PARSONS who played Wilf Harvey in Crossroads, who was married to the actress who played Alice Loomis in the same soap.

    And also BRIAN KENT who played Dick Jarvis in that show was married to an actress who played Hilda Duvan (the original Amy Turtle type gossip).

    JANE ROSSINGTON's real-life daughter played her on-screen daughter and the same happened with LYNETTE MCMORROUGH.

    And actually while I'm on CAROLYN JONES who was Sharon Metcalfe was married to JEREMY MASON who played Richard Lord.

    Oh and of course NOELE GORDON and JOAN GORDON (her mother) appeared in Crossroads a couple of times, although Joan was just an extra so isn't major the same can be said of JOHN BENTLEY and his wife PATRICA BENTLEY.

    I know who you mean Tony, the actress who played Hilda Duvene was indeed Margery Field, married to Brian Kent.

    Yes, Jane Rossington's real life daughter Sorrell played Sarah-Jane and Lynette McMorrough's daughter Emily played Katy-Louise. John Bentley's future wife Patricia Smith was an extra.

    There are lots in Crossroads isnt there.
