Emmerdale: Sammy Winward discusses possibility of return
Sammy Winward, 37, posted a snap of herself and her husband of five years Martyn Hardy, who she first began dating when they were at school together from the age of 11.
The Emmerdale actress – known for playing Katie Sugden in the ITV soap from 2001 to 2015 – sent fans wild when she uploaded the snap to her Instagram last week.
She explained that she had met her Human Resources manager spouse Martyn while the pair were studying together.
In a caption detailing how she came across her longtime partner, the star shared they have little photos of the beginning of their relationship which started almost 24 years ago.
The vintage photo showed a youthful Sammy wearing a school uniform as she smiled towards the camera.

Behind her, Martyn wore a similar outfit minus the wool jumper and sported a beanie hat, as he lovingly wrapped his arm around his future wife.
Sammy wrote to her Instagram followers: “Young love. We literally have no photos of us from our school days together so when a new one resurfaced the other day we were over the moon. I was 13 here and only went and married the guy! Xxx.”(sic)
Fans and friends rushed to the comments to gush over the childhood sweethearts.
One said: “Honestly you still look the same how is this possible one true love forever x.”(sic)

Another typed: “Wow. You’re super lucky to find this kind of long true lasting love.”
“You’ve not changed much, still a fair beauty,” commented a third.
Sammy previously revealed she turned down a return to the soap – despite her character being killed off.
The actress made the admission on last year’s Loose Women – where she appeared alongside teenage daughter Mia.
Her character Katie previously fell to her death when the floor gave way at Wylie’s Farm after she discovered Robert Sugden (played by Karl Davies) was having an affair with Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller), while he was due to marry Chrissie White (Louise Marwood).

Robert then tried to get Aaron to help cover up what had happened to Katie before Andy was later heartbroken to find her dead at the farm.
And it turns out there could have been a chance for Sammy to reprise the role – but she refused.
When panellist Janet Street-Porter asked if she’d ever go back, Sammy replied: “Interestingly enough, I was asked to go back as a ghost.
“I said no, but not like in a huffy way. I just didn’t really fancy it.”
She joked: “I was imagining myself in a white sheet with eye holes cut out.”
