Jennifer Ellison's Brookside throwback picture makes us all want the soap back

Brookside star Jennifer Ellison shared a throwback picture of the popular soap in a social media post and honestly it just makes us miss it all the more.

The actress — who portrayed Emily Shadwick in the Channel 4 soap — took to Instagram to share the classic pic.

She captioned the post with: ‘TB to the good old Brookside days!!!
What a great time we all had before social media and the madness!! #thankful #gratitude’

Fans were quick to comment below — many of whom demonstrated how much they miss the classic soap — with one saying: ‘I miss Brookie!’ while another added: ‘VHS Video recorder was set every Saturday 17.05 – 18.30 without fail.’

Another fan commented: ‘Oh I loved Brookside..bring it back’ while one more commented: ‘It should be on Netflix’.

Now there’s an idea!

The now defunct soap began on Channel 4 back in 1982, and enjoyed a successful 21 year run, before finishing out with a final instalment in 2003.

Since it was axed, fans have longed for the soap to be revived, or re-run from the beginning — and who can blame then given how utterly iconic the soap was!

Jennifer portrayed Emily Shadwick between 1998 and 2003.
