What did Sammy Winward share about her daughter?

Sammy, who played Katie Sugden in the ITV soap, had many convinced the image was actually of her.

And even though Mia herself commented on the Instagram pic, plenty of onlookers could not get over the pair’s resemblance.

It showed Mia beaming as she showed off her new accessories and a new hairstyle.

Sammy explained in the photo’s caption that she was sharing the selfie because it represented a life moment for them both.

My God I thought it was you!

The actress wrote: “Finally gave in to getting her second earrings done and her first set of highlights!

“She’s growing up way too fast for my liking!”

Sammy Winward’s ‘double’

Several fans found it hard to accept that it wasn’t actually Sammy in the photo.

“My God, I thought it was you!” exclaimed one person the comments.

“My goodness, I thought this was you! So like you!” echoed another.

And a third person pondered: “This is you, surely?”

“Honestly I thought you had got your earrings done, wow two peas!” remarked yet another follower.

Other commenters could believe the image showed Mia, but still made it clear they could see a strong resemblance.

“A mini Sammy,” wrote one.

“Your double, jeez,” remarked another.

A third contributed: “Chip off the old block.”

And someone else complimented them both: “Beautiful like her mummy.”

Another observer who apparently knows Mia and her mum personally got a response from Sammy.

“That’s not Mia,” they insisted.

Sammy replied: “Haha! I know! Grown up a lot since you last saw her!”

Mia, however, seemed slightly bashful at the attention, posting an emoji of a monkey covering its eyes in embarrassment.

“Mum,” she wrote.

And in response, proud mother Sammy told her: “Oh shush!”

Emmerdale stars Zoe Henry (who plays Rhona Goskirk) and Anthony Quinlan (Pete Barton in the soap) were also among the commenters.

Sammy showed off a hair transformation of her own a couple of months ag0 – and Mia had a hand in that, too.

She wrote at the time: “Don’t think I’ve ever been this blonde but kinda liking it!

“Slightly terrifying having it bleached by my 15 year old (both nearly stormed off half way through as it was so stressful).”
