Kate Ford's son has resorted to hilarious measures to get his own back when he's annoyed with her.
The Coronation Street star shares 10-year-old son Otis with ex husband Jon Connerty, and has revealed how the youngster has taken to drawing attention to her by shouting out her character's name "in a northern accent".
She tweeted: "If my son is annoyed with me he's taken to shouting it's Tracy Barlow in a northern accent in public."
Kate's followers definitely saw the funny side of Otis' embarrassing stunt, with many of them praising him for his sense of humour.
One fan wrote: "That is hilarious!! Your son is genius sorry lol xx (sic)"

The 42-year-old actress - who has played Tracy on the ITV soap since 2002, having returned in 2010 after a three year break - often keeps her social media followers entertained with stories from her life away from the soap.
She recently had everyone laughing again when she moaned about the music choices in the car.
She said: "One of the more challenging aspects of parenting is having no control over the playlist when you are driving and kids are in the car...
"I've listened to the same anime song for 2 hours on repeat!!! Send help"
Kate has even given her fans an amusing insight into life on the cobbles, as she shared a vague snippet from a script as she suggested the scriptwriters were asking a bit too much from her.
Pointing out a stage direction telling her to "wiggle her eyebrows", she said: "Writers must be having a laugh......"
