Anthony previously praised his daughter during her stint on Emmerdale, tweeting: "Lovely moment at end of @emmerdale last night with @emily_head, (it looked painful,) made all the more special by a dolly-zoom - haven’t seen one of those for a while - and well done to the camera op for pulling it off so beautifully."

Chatting about The Syndicate, Emily recently opened up about struggling with a Geordie actress, telling the BBC: "I worked on the accent a lot. Newcastle isn't an accent I've ever done before, so I spent a lot of time working on it at home and I hired a dialect coach to help me finesse it and make sure it sounded natural."

Joe Sugg admitted that he had a similar struggle, explaining: "The biggest hurdle to cross and really prep for was Sam's accent. I've got a lot of fans of my previous work on YouTube who are from the north and will be completely honest if I did an awful accent. And what you don't realise is there are so many different regions and dialects all within the north."
