Emmerdale’s Sammy Winward’s daughter lands her first model shoot

Emmerdale star Sammy Winward took to social media to celebrate his makeup artist daughter landing her first professional modeling shoot.

The 36-year-old actress, best known for starring as Katie Sugden on the ITV soap opera until 2015, was “beaming with pride” as she shared the news with her 75,000 Instagram followers.

The star posted a picture of her teenage daughter Mia Winward on her way to work in London.

Sammy wrote in the caption, “The obligatory embarrassing mom pic.

“Mia’s first professional photoshoot in London today as a lead makeup artist.

“Maybe radiate a little bit of pride. Had to take some distance for teenage embarrassment reasons xx.”

In the snap, Mia can be seen dragging a suitcase as she stares at her mother with a classic embarrassed teenage expression.

Fans and friends of the actress rushed to the comments section to congratulate Sammy and her daughter.

One of them said, “Yesssss come on Mia! X.”

A second said: “So proud of her and you.”

“Amazing, she’s gonna smash everything. I’ve seen a few BTS, it looks amazing,” a third added.

Others joked about Mia’s apparent reluctance to get picked up by her mom in public.

“Her face.. good luck Mia!! xx,” added another.

Earlier this year, the Daily Star took a look back at Sammy’s life now, seven years after his last appearance in Emmerdale.

Viewers of the show were left disgusted when fan-favorite Sammy left, ending Katie Sugden’s trials and tribulations.

Sammy’s character met tragedy when she fell dramatically to her death in the long-running ITV drama.

After finding out that her brother-in-law Robert Sugden was having an affair with Aaron Dingle when he was to marry Chrissie White, Katie angrily confronted him. But things didn’t go as planned.

As the pair argued over her bedroom antics at Wylie’s Farm, the floor gave way and Katie dove to the ground.

Badboy Robert told Aaron to help cover up the accident before her husband Andy later found her dead on the concrete floor.
