She also replied to author Marian Keyes, who tweeted: "Approx 4,900 years ago (genuinely 1987) i saw yon Sally Webster in a pub in St John's Wood and she was indescribably GORGEOUS. Small and radiant and golden-haired and curvy-bummed and just DELICIOUS," writing: "Love this Marian. Thank you."

She also shared a family friend's tweet which read: "Tim and Sally Dynevor are old friends.

"I'm obsessed with the fact that Phoebe Bridgerton is Sally Webster's daughter!" another tweeted.

Others marvelled at just how similar the young actress is to her soap star mum. "Sally from Corrie's daughter is the absolute spits of her; stick her in front of a sewing machine in a knicker factory and I couldn't tell the difference #Bridgerton," someone commented.
