Emmerdale’s Tracy Metcalfe has kept this secret from viewers, but now it’s been revealed fans are going crazy

On the soap this week, Tracy tried to save Finn Barton from arrest after he broke into his ex Kasim Barton’s house.

The popular character has been played by Amy Walsh since 2014 and has been head first in drama ever since.

But what fans might not know about Amy, is that she has a very famous sister.

Her sibling is Kimberley Walsh, famed for her time in Popstars: The Rivals winning band, Girls Aloud

The sisters are reportedly very close, with Kimberley introducing Amy to her boyfriend Bradley.

“I jokingly said ‘Do you know anyone who’s single?’ And Kimberley said: ‘My sister is, but you’ll never get her!'” Bradley recently revealed to OK! magazine.

Not long ago, Kimberley gave birth to her second son, Cole, with her husband Justin Scott. The couple also have a little boy called Bobby.

Amy and Kimberley are also sisters to Sally Walsh, who played Lyn Hutchinson in Emmerdale until 2000.

Actress, Amy revealed that growing up with her very famous older sister was pretty surreal.

“I was only 15 when they first got together but I went on tour with them a few times! We had a few nights out,” she said.

Amy is also close to Kimberley’s band mate Cheryl, revealing that they’ve “grown up” together.

“Over the years I have got to know her and I’ve basically grown up with her. She’s like one of the family,” she explained.

Upon the revelation, fans of the soap took to Twitter to express their shock. One wrote: OMG I didn’t know Tracy from Emmerdale was Kim Walsh’s sis!!!” Another added: “Amy Walsh and Kimberley Walsh are sister. Mind Blown”, with a third commenting: “Tracy from Emmerdale is Kimberley Walsh’s sister. That’s brilliant!”
