Many think Amy Walsh’s only famous sister is Girls Aloud’s Kimberley – but she has another celebrity sibling some may recognise.
The 34-year old actress – who stars as Tracy Metcalfe in Emmerdale – is also a sibling to Sally who was the first of the family to get their break on the acting scene.
43-year-old Sally starred on Emmerdale as Marlon Dingle’s troublemaker girlfriend Lyn Hutchinson from 1997 to 2000 at the age of 18.
Amy was the last to get her big break, landing her role in Emmerdale back in 2014, just behind her sister Kimberley.
Kimberley, aged 39, rose to fame in late 2002 when she auditioned for the reality series Popstars: The Rivals on ITV. The series announced that Kimberley had won a place as a member of the girl group Girls Aloud.
The talented Walsh family grew up in Bradford and the four children all joined local stage schools.
Speaking to The Sun Online, Amy said: “It was a bit like Fame in our house.
“Every morning before school Sally and Kimberley would rehearse their own little shows and my mum was a music teacher, so she’d be accompanying them on the piano.
“When I first joined Emmerdale, me, my Mum and Kimberley all sat together to watch and we had a little bit of a tea party, which was nice.
“Kimberley was really pleased for me, because I have worked hard to make a path for myself.”
