Emmerdale fans were charmed as Isabel Hodgins thanked her lookalike mum for her "most generous of hearts" on her birthday.
The actress, who is best known for playing Victoria Sugden in the ITV soap, posted two pictures of mum Karen on Instagram as she celebrated her big day.
One saw the star, 27, leaning in to give her mum a kiss on the cheek, while the other was of Karen surrounded by her family during an evening out.
The pair looked similar as could be with the same dark hair and makeup style.
"K A R E N," wrote Isabel, alongside a purple heart emoji. "Happy birthday mummy.
"Thank you for all that you are and all that you do.
"Thank you for celebrating my wins with me and for always knowing what to say after my losses. Thank you for your hugs, wicked sense of humour and the most generous of hearts.
"I love you very much."
She added of her siblings: "Charlotte, Adam and I are so lucky to get to call you mum."
The sweet post got plenty of love from Isabel's friends and fans.
Her Emmerdale co-star Charley Webb wished Karen a happy birthday and added: "Thank you for bringing up such a delightful human."
"Happy Birthday to your mum," said one fan. "Hope she has a fantastic day."
"Awww beautiful words – happy birthday to your mum from me," echoed another.
Isabel, who joined the soap in 2006, has a brother and a sister and fans have previously said they were struck by the resemblance between the trio.
When she shared a snap of her brother to mark his 30th birthday, Emmerdale fans flocked to the comments section to say the pair were each other's double.
"I genuinely thought that was you with a Snapchat filter making you look like a bloke!" said one stunned fan.
"You are the spit of each other!"
"You are the double of each other, minus the beard!" said another.
