Actress Daisy Campbell plays Amelia in Emmerdale.

Daisy was born on July 28 2003 making her three years older than her alter ego. She is 19 years old.

To celebrate her 18th birthday last year, Daisy posted some very glam snaps on Instagram.

She looked flawless sitting on a suspended chair in a baby pink sequin embellished mini-dress matched with a pair of pink Gucci platform heels. 

And her social media followers were keen to heap praise on her sexy look.

One follower wrote: “You look amazing.”

Another said: “Absolutely stunning.”

A third posted: “Absolutely gorgeous, so grown up.”

Leeds-born Daisy in fact spent a whole week celebrating in style, sharing all the shenanigans with her 60.9k Insta followers.

The teen star was treated to a delicious meal and glass of bubbly at The Biltmore Bar and Grill in York. 

She enjoyed a family outing to Whitby Bay and the picturesque view of Robin Hood’s Bay on the North Yorkshire coast.

And she was finally able to enjoy her first legal night out drinking. She partied with pals at Revolution Electric Press and Club Nocturno in Wakefield. 

This year Daisy celebrated her 19th birthday.

While she was out celebrating she was stopped by two officers from West Yorkshire police.

However she wasn’t in trouble. It turned out both officers were big Emmerdale fans and wanted a photo with Daisy.

Who is Amelia’s dad?

Amelia grew up believing her dad was Dan Spencer.

However, it was later revealed his brother, Daz, could also have been her father.

A DNA test proved Daz was in fact her biological dad.

Amelia was horribly upset by the revelation and went missing.

Daz was suspected of having something to do with her disappearance, but it turned out she had been manipulated by a woman called Beth.

Beth was holding Amelia hostage after Daz accidentally killed her dad when he was in the army.

Amelia eventually returned home.

However when Daz departed Emmerdale she decided to stay with Dan and Kerry.

She still views Dan as her real dad and when he ended up in a wheelchair after suffering an allergic reaction it was Amelia who stepped up and took care of him.

What happened to Amelia’s mum in Emmerdale?

Amelia’s mum, Ali, decided to leave Emmerdale after the death of her wife, Ruby in the helicopter crash.

Ali wanted to be closer to Sean, who had left to join the army.

But Amelia decided to stay with Dan and his partner Kerry Wyatt.

Kerry and Amelia grew very close and when Ali died off-screen in 2018, Kerry was there for her.

It has been Kerry who has supported Amelia through many tough times, including helping Amelia come to terms with Dan’s condition.

Although Kerry and Dan are no longer together, she is still there for Amelia.

Amelia’s pregnancy

This year Amelia began struggling with body image issues.

She began developing a crush on Noah Dingle

However when his plan to use Amelia to make his ex-girlfriend Chloe jealous didn’t work, Noah said some cruel words to Amelia.

Eventually Noah went to prison for stalking and harassing Chloe.

Meanwhile Amelia began taking weight-gain syrup.

When she passed out while holding baby Thomas, Amelia admitted to her dad that she had been taking this syrup.

He demanded she get checked over, but results from tests revealed Amelia was pregnant.

Amelia had forgiven Noah and started to visit him in prison and when Noah’s mum Charity found out about Amelia’s pregnancy, she assumed Noah was the dad.

Noah told his mum that he wasn’t the father.

It has not yet been revealed who the dad is, but fans have come up with different theories.
