Coronation Street fans shocked as soap legend appears in Emmerdale- did you spot? | The Sun

SOAP actress Martine Brown appeared on Emmerdale last night as the mysterious character, Joy.

But as she went on a date with Mary, viewers couldn't help but notice something extremely familiar about her face.

Eagle eyed viewers were left doing a double take as Dales regular Mary Goskirk (Louise Jameson) went on a date with a mysterious lady called Joy in Tuesday night’s episode of the serial drama.

Many fans were quick to notice that newcomer Joy is in fact already a familiar face to soap fans after many recognised her.

But as it turns out, former Coronation Street actress Martine Brown is already quite the regular on the soap scene.

Martine also played Juliette Benson – the mum of Kurt Benson (played by Jeremy Edwards) – in Hollyoaks and appeared on the soap for almost two years until her exit in 1997.

And fans were quick to take to social media to express their shock at seeing the actress pop up in a rival soap.

One posted: “I’ve just been watching tonight’s Emmerdale… and spotted the actress who played Anthony’s meddling daughter, Amanda!”
