Matilda's dad, Helen's footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair, 28, was unable to attend because of work commitments, but Helen gave him a shoutout on Instagram saying: "You were so missed Scott. We love you."

Celtic player Scott posted his own birthday message to Matilda as well, sharing a photo of him cuddling his little girl with the caption: "Happy 2nd Birthday to my beautiful princess you are my world I love you so much."

Helen returned to Coronation Street earlier this year after initially quitting the soap in 2012.

She was just nine years old when she first joined the ITV soap before her character departed the screen to star in a fictional reality show.

The star said last year that having Matilda changed her priorities in life. "You realise what’s important but I am completely besotted with her," she admitted.
