Co-stars and fans rushed to tweet back.

Lisa Riley, who plays Mandy Dingle, tweeted: “You know how much sunshine she brings… like my little sister.”
One fan said: “Absolute star!”
Amelia made her first appearance in Emmerdale on March 19 2014 playing Marlon’s daughter.
Marlon’s ex-girlfriend Donna left the village in 2009 pregnant with his baby, but he had no idea.
She returned in 2014 with her daughter April and it was later revealed Donna had cancer.
Donna died after pulling criminal Gary off the top floor of a multi-storey car park.
Six years ago today we found out this one was going to join @Emmerdale.
A devastated April was left in Marlon’s care.
Since her arrival in Emmerdale, April has suffered a lot of loss.
When she arrived in the village, her dad was married to Laurel, who became a mother figure to April. However her alcoholism drove them apart.
Marlon then got into a relationship with Carly Hope, but she ended up leaving the village with her former flame Matt.
Marlon then went onto marry Jessie, who April also became extremely close to.
However they also split after Jessie cheated on Marlon and she ended up moving to Dubai.
Amelia isn’t the only soap star in her family as her siblings, twins Isabella and William Flanagan, are in Coronation Street.
They play cousins Hope Stape and Joseph Brown.
