Her and Davids father is David Cunliffe and Pollys father is Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas.

Emilie has a very close bond with her mother and is often seen supporting her at showbiz events.

Back in January 2017 when Kyms stillbirth storyline in Coronation Street aired, she publicly praised her mum for being strong.

What made the scenes even more poignant was that in real life, Kym lost her and ex partner Jamie Lomas son Archie when he was born 18 weeks prematurely in 2010.

Emilie has also been pictured with her dad on social media, here celebrating her 18th birthday with him in a photo he shared to his Twitter page in 2015.

Unlike Emilies, her brother Davids Twitter account is private.

Emilies passion for music became evident in 2015 when she auditioned for BBC reality TV show The Voice.

We four coaches ordered well done steak, but the temperature you were cooking at at the beginning didnt really cook it well done. To then open up the steak and its red on the inside.

I ask the lady “excuse me, I asked for well done! But its still bloody”. Its not that people dont like medium rare, its just that we asked for well done. I like my metaphors.

The rest of the judges showed regret at not turning for the young wannabe, who was also rejected from BGT.

Tom Jones told the singer he had nothing to criticise about her voice, and Ricky Wilson said there was just a tiny seed of doubt in his mind preventing him from hitting that buzzer.

Fellow female singer Rita Ora offered her some words of advice: There are so many female singers you need to make sure you stand out for yourself. So I think you have so much time on your hands you have time to go and figure out what it is that will make people remember you.

Youre beautiful, you have incredible tone, youve got this opportunity to go away and tell yourself in the mirror what am I going to do to stand out amongst all these other girls in the music industry and when you figure that out please come back.

Emilies audition lead to some trolls online posting nasty comments about her online.

And Kym was only too ready to jump to her daughters defence.

Weve both had time to get our hands around it and now were both over the moon. It makes me feel so emotional that my baby is having a baby of her own.

Emilie, 21, is set to have her first child with her boyfriend of six months, with Kym stating how becoming a young mum seems to be a pattern in the family considering she herself fell pregnant aged 18.
