After Debbie Dingle made a shock return to the village, she agreed to cover up her daughter’s drug crimes.

Sophia Amber Moore portrayed Sarah between 2007 and 2016.

Is Andy Sugden returning to Emmerdale?

Sarah’s dad Andy Sugden was played by Kelvin Fletcher, but he decided to leave the soap in 2016.

In the ITV soap, Andy is on the run from the police after being framed by his ex-girlfriend Chrissie White for the attempted murder of Lawrence White.

It was actually evil serial killer Lachlan White who tried to kill Lawrence.

Kelvin left the soap to focus on his other career as a racing driver, having taken part in a number of races since he left.

He also won Strictly Come Dancing last year and is starting to get back into acting.

While he hasn’t said anything about returning to The Dales anytime soon, the door has been left open for him to return, as he told Soaplife magazine: “"Andy wasn't killed off, so technically I could return.

"But I genuinely haven't given it much thought. The two years since I left have flown by and, in many respects, my leaving still feels very fresh."
