Coronation Street's Jack James Ryan celebrates his sister Rebecca joining the ITV soap

Coronation Street star Jack James Ryan is set to be joined by his sister Rebecca Ryan on the ITV soap.

Taking to Instagram, the actor, 25, who plays bad boy Jacob Hay, celebrated his sibling’s, 30, new acting role with the Shameless star taking on the role of Lydia in upcoming scenes.

Sharing a collection of sweet snaps, including one photo of the two in front of the Rovers Return Inn, Jack praised his “inspirational” big sister Rebecca, who is also known for her roles in Waterloo Road and Casualty.

Jack penned: “Still can’t believe this is happening but I’m beyond proud to finally announce my ridiculously talented sister @rebeccaryan___ is joining the cast of @coronationstreet.

“When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I’d say ‘an actor on TV like my big sister’. You’ve been my biggest inspiration and I’ll never be able to articulate just how proud I am to be your little bro.

“They say never work with family but on this occasion I’d like to strongly disagree. Can’t wait for Lydia to hit our screens in December so make sure to keep an eye out to see what she gets up to! Love you Bex.”

While Rebecca also took to social media to celebrate the exciting news and the opportunity to work with her younger brother.

Sharing the same snap outside the Rovers Return Inn, she penned: “THE NEWS IS OUT!! So excited to be joining the cast of Corrie.

“What a dream come true not only do I get to be a part of this amazing programme but I get to do it all with my best mate and little bro!! @jackjamesryan . Xx.”

The duo’s followers and Corrie co-stars were quick to celebrate the news with Abi Franklin star Sally Carman writing: “YAY!!!” followed by clapping and heart emojis.

Rebecca’s new character, Lydia, will be involved in a storyline with Sarah and Adam Barlow, and she is reportedly set to make her first cobbles debut next week.

A Coronation Street spokesperson told Metro: “After the dramatic events of 2021 you would think the residents of Britain’s favourite street would be looking for a quieter start to 2022, but although the storm clouds gathering this time are metaphorical, there may be just as much damage.

“Sarah and Adam are hoping to cement their relationship by starting a family, but when Sarah’s new friend Lydia turns out to be someone from Adam’s past, could all Sarah’s dreams turn to nightmares?”

Coronation Street continues on weekdays on ITV.
