Emmerdale: Who are Sarah’s parents?

Sarah is the daughter of Debbie Dingle and Andy Sugden.

When Debbie was 15 she discovered she was pregnant with boyfriend Andy’s baby.

She was determined to keep the pregnancy secret.

She managed to hide it from everyone, except for Andy’s brother, Daz Eden.

Debbie wanted to have her baby alone in hospital and have it adopted, but she unexpectedly gave birth in the woods.

She struggled to bond with her daughter and wanted Paddy and Emily Kirk to have her.

Eventually Sarah went to live with Andy and his girlfriend, later wife, Jo Stiles. But when Andy was sent to prison, Debbie and Sarah began to form a bond.

Later, Andy and Debbie fought for custody of their daughter until Andy withdrew his application and Sarah stayed with her mum.
