Bridgerton Fans Shocked To Realise Phoebe Dynevor's Mum Is Sally From Coronation Street

Bridgerton Fans Shocked To Realise Phoebe Dynevor's Mum Is Sally From Coronation Street

If you started watching Bridgerton on Christmas Day, you'll have likely binge-watched the lot already. Ever since the show dropped, fans have been hooked.

But did you know that Phoebe Dynevor (who plays Daphne Bridgerton in the Netflix show) is actually the daughter of Sally Webster from Coronation Street? Who is also called Sally IRL, btw.

We knew Phoebe looked so familiar, we just couldn't work out why. But yep, the Dynevor family are mega talented!

Sally has been in the role on the ITV soap since 1996 (when 25-year-old Phoebe was just one!)

If you're yet to get your teeth into Bridgerton, we recommend you do so immediately. The scandalous series follows Daphne as she navigates the 'marriage market' of 1813.

Alongside mounting pressure from just about everybody to find her 'true love' - and follow in her parent's footsteps - Daphne's older brother begins to rule out each and every one of her potential suitors.

The situation is made even more difficult when the mysterious Lady Whistledown (Julie Andrews) - who narrates the dramas around London's high society in a Gossip Girl style 'scandal sheet' - begins to cast her own doubts on Daphne's reputation.

After meeting Simon - a committed bachelor - the pair strike a mutually beneficial deal to pretend to be engaged. However, things take a (very) steamy turn when sparks fly between the pair and they realise they have genuine feelings.

And fans were blown away when they realised Phoebe was related to Sally. One person tweeted: "Mind is blown that Daphne is played by Sally from Coronation Street's daughter."

While another added: "Phoebe Dynevor holds such a resemblance to her mum, I can't stop seeing Sally from Coronation Street whenever Daphne is on screen."

One commented: "Daphne's mother in real life is Corrie's sally webster and now I can't unsee it."

There's another reason why you might recognise Phoebe - perhaps from her role on Waterloo Road which was her first, as well as Snatch.

She also made her debut on American telly in 2017, with her role as Clare in Younger.

We've got a feeling we'll be seeing a lot more of Phoebe!
