Emilia Jones, 19, appeared on This Morning today to discuss her new film CODA. The young actress was introduced by presenters Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes when fellow guest Gyles Brandreth let slip a rather embarrassing secret about her famous family.

The 73-year-old revealed that Aled’s wife, Claire Fossett, is a highly acclaimed circus performer.

Gyles said: “You know Aled Jones, but you may not know [Emilia’s] mum, Claire Fossett from the distinguished circus family.

“She is a trapeze artist.

“They are neighbours of ours and in their front room they have a reinforced chandelier.

“So, Claire, on a good day, can actually swing from the chandelier.”

Rochelle immediately burst into laughter as shocked Phillip sat with his mouth wide open.

The host turned to a giggling Emilia and asked: “So, what do you think mum’s gonna think about that story being told?”

The Locke & Key actress replied: “She is going to be absolutely mortified! Mortified!”

Gyles added: “No she’s not! She is so lovely. They are the most brilliant family in the world which is why they have this genius daughter who is going to become a huge star.”

Phillip told Emilia to “apologise to her mum” for Gyles letting the secret slip.

Still laughing, Emilia put her hands over her mouth and said: “I will! My goodness.”

As a member of the famous Fossett family, Aled’s wife Claire performed in the circus when she was younger.

The trapeze artist met Aled when he was performing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat in Blackpool in the 1990s.

They were married in 2001 and share Emilia and their son Lucas, 16.

Speaking about her parents today, Emilia gushed that they are “so supportive”.

She told Phil and Rochelle: “They are not pushy at all and when I was younger, I used to hate it when they wanted me to be at school for a certain amount of time, I used to hate that, but now I look back and I’m grateful.

“They wanted me to be a kid.”

Emilia has received critical acclaim for her lead role in CODA, which is now available to stream on Apple TV+.

She plays the role of a hearing child in a deaf household with a passion for singing after meeting her love interest in high school.

The movie was nominated for Best Film at the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards, with Emilia winning Best Breakthrough Performer at the Gotham Awards and a Hollywood Critics Association Film Awards nomination for Best Actress.
