How did Katie Sugden leave Emmerdale?

Recently Sammy hit out at Emmerdale bosses for making her strip to a bikini for scenes as a farmer.

The actress played Katie Sugden for 14 years until she was killed off in 2015 in grisly scenes.

But in her early years on the soap, Sammy claimed she and co-star Verity Rushworth were made to strip to bikinis for two weeks of filming.

However, hitting out at the soap, Sammy told the Soap From the Box podcast: “There’s no way that would be allowed now.

“I do remember a storyline for me and Verity who played Donna and we had to basically sunbathe on the farm every day for two weeks, herding cows in bikinis – what the hell?

“And I remember it was very near us doing the end of those scenes and I was just about to get off the bus with Verity to film our last one and one of the costume girls got a big towel and wrapped it around me.

“She said: ‘Get on the bus. You’re not doing it any more. We’re all saying you can’t do this. It’s not okay. And it’s not right.'”

However, she added: “Now that would never, ever happen.”
