Ryan Thomas' daughter gets modelling job

Ryan Thomas' daughter has become a model.

The former 'Coronation Street' actor and his ex-girlfriend Tina O'Brien - who plays Sarah Platt in the ITV soap - are thrilled their little seven-year-old girl Scarlett has become the new face of a kidswear range with the fashion brand Boohoo.

Tina 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 two modelling shoots for Boohoo. She recently performed at The Lowry Theatre with our drama school and she loved it."

Boohoo approached Scarlett earlier this year because the online fashion firm have a close connection with Ryan.

Carol Kane, joint CEO of Boohoo, said: "Ryan Thomas is a lifelong friend of the brand and so we were delighted to be able to make Scarlett Thomas the face of the girlswear collection. She looks beautiful in all the pieces."

And it's hardly surprising Scarlett has a nature flare for modelling and acting considering her parents' talents.

The 32-year-old actor - who was known for playing Jason Grimshaw, the ex-husband of Sarah, in the show - met Tina on the set of 'Coronation Street' in 2003 and dated her for six years until they ended their relationship in 2009.

Tina is now in a relationship with Adam Crofts, with whom she has 23-month-old son Beau, while Ryan has just split from his marketing consultant girlfriend Lana Martin.
