Sammy, who played Emmerdale’s Katie Sudgen until the character’s death in 2006, was previously engaged to footballer David Dunn, who she shares 16-year-old daughter Mia with.
During an appearance with Sammy on Loose Women in August 2021, Mia revealed that she’s following in her mother’s footsteps by becoming an actor.
When Loose Women panellist Kaye Adams described Mia as Sammy’s “spitting image”, the former soap actor said: “I always thought ‘oh my god, I’m only going to be 36 or 37 when she is 18’ and I’m nearly there now and it’s just crazy because we just feel like best mates really.
