Alex Gerrard's daughter Lilly-Ella has filmed an appearance on Coronation Street.

Nine-year-old Lilly shot her non-speaking role on the ITV soap earlier this week, just a few months after she toured the set with her footballer dad Steven.

Mum Alex tweeted her a good luck message beforehand, saying: "Good luck to my little girl Lilly at Coronation Street today. Hope it goes well!"

Alex later told a follower: "She done well… she loved it x."

A source told The Sun: "It's only a little, non-speaking role but the whole Gerrard family are unbelievably excited. It should be on screen in around six weeks."

Liverpool captain Steven took Lilly and middle daughter Lexie for a visit to Weatherfield in February 2013, where they met some cast members and toured the set. Apparently that's where Lilly picked up the acting bug, leading to her Corrie cameo.
