Ten-year-old Jessica Fay appeared in the final episode of the smash hit comedy drama as the daughter of one of the main characters in the show.

And although it was only a cameo role, Jessica is waiting to hear if she will be called back for more episodes if the show is commissioned for another series.

And while her family and friends were excited to see Jessica on the show that has been running successfully for 20 years, she was quite matter of fact about it.

Her proud mum, Laura Bell, said: "We all sat down to watch the show but Jessica wanted to watch Paul O'Grady's animal show on U Tube.

"She is not starry about it and she can't understand what all the fuss is about."

A natural in the limelight since she was a tot, Jessica has appeared on the small screen many times in a variety of children's and adults shows. She is also a veteran of many TV adverts along with her brother Denver who is 11.

Their brothers Kyle (12), and five-year-old Taylor also love acting and modelling but Jayden (seven) shuns the limelight.

Jessica is already a seasoned model after being chosen for a series of campaigns and competitions. And this year alone she has filmed three feature films, which will all be released in 2018.

But far from being a diva, Jessica is a very generous little girl and always wants to donate her earnings to charity.

Laura said: "Jessica's first thought is always for others, she is such a caring little girl.

"She would donate all her earnings to charity if she could."

This year Jessica has raised £500 for the Brain Injury Trust and an amazing £1,500 for the Little Princess Trust.

This charity makes wigs for children who are going through cancer treatment and Jessica had nine inches of her own hair chopped off to donate to the trust..

Jessica also donated 22 days of her own wages, totalling £205, in honour of the 22 victims of the Manchester terror attack in May.

Laura said: "As soon as Jessica saw what happened at the Manchester Arena she asked what she could do to help."

Jessica first made the headlines when she constracted tthe deadly meningococcal meningitis and septicaemia when she was only three months old.

Her positive, bubbly nature and happy personality has won Jessica an army of fans and followers on social media.

Laura, who lives with her husband Adam, said: "This is something that Jessica excels at and loves as she often struggles at school because of her illnesses.

"But I don't think she wants to make it her career, she wants to do something to do with baking or looking after animals."
