Tina Malone has joked she’s created a ‘soap dynasty’ after revealing her daughter will be joining Hollyoaks.

The Shameless star’s cousin Kurtis Stacey joined Emmerdale in April as Alex Moss and now Danielle, 29, has been cast in Hollyoaks Later as Kelly.

Tina told The Sun: “Two years of trying to get her a job and she just kept getting episodes, and now she’s gone full-time.”

A Hollyoaks spokeswoman said: “We can confirm she’s going to be in Hollyoaks Later, but I’m afraid there are no confirmed plans as of yet that she’ll join the main show.”

Tina, 48, – who plays gangster Mimi Maguire in hit Channel 4 comedy drama Shameless – revealed Danielle’s career appeared to be paralleling her own, as her daughter appeared in her first film opposite Boardwalk Empire actor Stephen Graham.

Tina said: “It’s just so bizarre. The first scene I ever did in my life 23 years ago was with a 16-year-old Stevie Graham.”

Proud mum Tina added that Danielle will now be filming Hollyoaks Later for Mersey TV, which made axed soap Brookside – where the former Celebrity Big Brother star got her first TV role.
