There's a reason why you recognise Flora's voice in The Haunting of Bly Manor. Amelie Bea Smith is the voice of Peppa Pig.

The Haunting of Bly Manor is finally out on Netflix and terrifying people all around the world.

Yes. Amelie Bea Smith may play a very creepy child in Bly Manor but she's most famous for playing a character that children know and love. When she's not saying "Perfectly splendid!" around the halls of Bly Manor, Amelie can be found voicing the role of animated icon Peppa Pig. In other words, Amelie is part of voiceover royalty and we have no choice but to stan.

Amelie, aged 9-years-old, is the fourth actress to take on the part of Peppa. Amelie began voicing Peppa Pig on Valentine's Day this year, taking over from Harley Bird, 18, who quit in January after voicing the role for an incredible 11 years. The role is so popular that it reportedly makes £1000 an hour meaning that Amelie is one of the most well-paid kids on TV.

Naturally, Bly Manor fans are shook. Here are just a few of the reactions to the news so far.

Petrifying horror series and family-friendly cartoons? Amelie officially has the range.
