Tina O'Brien took advantage of her little girl's birthday falling so close to Halloween, and hosted her a party to remember over the weekend. The Coronation Street actress, who shares daughter Scarlett with former Corrie co-star Ryan Thomas, posted a number of photos from the celebrations on her Instagram account, which included one of Scarlett's impressive birthday cake, which was decorated with pumpkins and ghosts. She also shared a number of pictures of Scarlett, who was dressed as a zombie school girl – complete with faux scars, blood and a pair of cobweb glasses.
Captioning the images, doting mum Tina wrote: "Zombie school girl Halloween birthday party." Fans were quick to comment on the snaps, with many observing just how much Scarlett looked like her famous mum. "Wow I thought it was you," one wrote, while another said: "Scarlett is the image of you on this hun, beautiful." A third added: "Omg your double!"

Last week, both Tina and Ryan paid touching tributes to their daughter on the day of her birthday. Tina shared a throwback photo of her with a newborn Scarlett, which she accompanied with a heartfelt message, where she asked her daughter to "hold my hand for a few more years." It read: "Happy 9th Birthday Scarlett Where does the time go? My darling girl. You were born at 8.31am after I woke up in labour at 5am. The clocks had gone back the night before, winter was drawing in. I'll never forget seeing you for the first time and feeling like I already knew you."
Ryan, meanwhile, shared a photo of the pair on a beach, which he captioned: "Happy 9th birthday Scarlett, our first ever birthday apart makes this so much harder being the other side of the world. Love you my angel."
