Padiham triplets star on ‘Coronation Street’
Many actors spend years perfecting the art of performing in front of a camera – but for Padiham triplets it is as easy as one, two, three.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Erin, Eilah and Elsie, the five-month-old daughters of beautician Laura Slinger (26) and sales manager Martyn (29), are set to make their first appearance on Coronation Street tonight.
The youngsters will be alternating the role of Faye Windass’ baby girl Miley, after the shocked teenager goes into premature labour.
Martyn told the MEN: “My cousin, who is a theatre actor, suggested that we should get in touch with an agent.
“He said, ‘There is a high demand for twins, let alone triplets’.
“We sent some photos over and within two hours we heard back to say they had a client who was interested.
“On the Monday we were at Coronation Street.
“Everybody is shocked at how good they are. One of the triplets cries on cue so when they need a crying baby we take Elsie down for filming and when they need a calm baby we take Erin.
“Ellie [who plays Faye] has been fantastic with the girls.
“Hopefully they will stay on the show if they are enjoying it. I have grown up watching Coronation Street and so has Laura. They have made us at home and comfortable and everybody is one big family.”
Laura and Martyn were not available to talk to the Express before we went to print, but they told the MEN the triplets, who have a six-year-old big brother Maddox, were born 10 weeks early at Liverpool Women’s Hospital at the end of October.
