In the video, Scarlett - whose mum is Corrie's Tina O'Brien - walks with her dad in a backstage area. He tells her, as voices can be heard around a corner: "Who's that then? Go on!"

As she walks to see who it is, Scarlett says, "No way, oh my God" and stands holding a hand over her mouth at the sight of her idols.

They all hug her and Jesy tells the youngster: "You're so pretty, I love your jacket!"
