After spending most of Tuesday's Hollyoaks (November 19) bickering with boyfriend Brody Hudson about what the best Christmas film of all time is, there's a reason why Sienna Blake chose The Muppet Christmas Carol – and it's not just because it's a great movie.

In the post-credits scene, Sienna sat down to watch the 1992 festive classic. When Brody joined her and apologised for arguing, she told him to move to the naughty stool as he didn't "deserve Rizzo".

Turning back to the film, she mumbled to herself: "The Ghost of Christmas Past is such a creepy child."

But why did Sienna then suddenly smile?

Well, turns out the person voicing this very creepy child in The Muppet Christmas Carol was a very young Jessica Fox, aka Nancy Osborne!

Jessica was about 10 years old when she voiced the character alongside acting legend Michael Caine as Scrooge. Although she was probably more excited about working with Kermit and Miss Piggy at the time.

So, early Christmas presents for the Hollyoaks fans who managed to spot this funny in-joke!

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
