Tina O'Brien's three-year-old daughter Scarlett set her up with her new boyfriend Adam Crofts
Tina O'Brien was set up with her new boyfriend by three-year-old daughter Scarlett.
The former 'Coronation Street' star was purchasing a coffee when the youngster - who she had with fellow 'Corrie' star Ryan Thomas - approached Adam Crofts, and although she was initially worried about her child talking to strangers, she quickly changed her mind.
She told Reveal magazine: "I remember walking in with Scarlett and she spotted this guy sitting at a table with a laptop.
"She's so chatty and went over to say, 'Hello, man!' I was about to tell her not to talk to strangers, when I looked at him. It turned out he was seriously fit! I thought, 'Good choice, Scarlett,' and asked his name."
After swapping numbers the pair eventually met up, and she thanks her daughter for helping set up their now 10-month relationship.
She said: "It's funny because I really wasn't looking for a boyfriend at the time, but we got on so well and he asked me out properly a few weeks later. So Scarlett was basically my matchmaker."
