We all get a bit upset when our favourite soap chatacter dies. But one little girl was so upset when Hollyoaks' Carmel McQueen recently died, that actress Gemma Merna had to ring and reassure that she was still alive!

Ashlee Charles, eight, was devastated to see her favourite character from the soap lose her life in a dramatic train crash.

Her mum, Delyth, from Llanelli, South Wales, tweeted Gemma, asking for a simple reply to let worried Ashlee know that she was alright.

However, the kind star went one step further and asked for a phone number so she speak to the little lass directly.

Ashlee was quoted in The Sun talking about their conversation, saying: "She told me she was OK. I felt a lot better. She's lovely."

We agree! Nice work, Gemma!
