It’s all going on in the Yorkshire Dales at the moment, and Sarah Sugden finds herself in the centre of it all in hit show Emmerdale.

The character, played 18 year old by Katie Hill, got back in touch with drug dealer Danny and then hid a bag of pills in Ethan’s jacket in dramatic scenes.

So what’s next for the character? And who are her parents in the hit ITV show? Let’s take a look…

Who is Sarah Sugden’s mum and dad in Emmerdale?

Sarah’s mum is newly returned Debbie Dingle, played by Charley Webb, and her dad is Andy Sugden, played by Kelvin Fletcher.

Strictly winner Kelvin departed the show in 2016 in a bid to focus on other hobbies, including his racing driver passion.

However, he hasn’t technically said he won’t return, and told Soaplife: “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."

Andy’s departure saw him on the run from police after being framed by ex Chrissie White for attempted murder of Lawrence White.

Andy Sugden leaves behind daughter Sarah, who was born when Debbie was just 15 and they named the child after Andy’s late adopted mum.

Meanwhile, Sarah’s mum Debbie has recently made a return to the soap and she surprised viewers by telling the youngster she had to “do the right thing” when it came to the drugs scandal.

Debbie said: “Ethan’s done nothing wrong and yet he’s the one that’s suffering. People have been whispering about him.

“They see him now and they see a black guy who’s been pushing drugs. People are judging him and he’s the one who’s having to deal with the fallout – it’s not right.

“You are brave enough to deal with this. You have to talk to him, and you have to apologise and whatever happens I will be by your side no matter what happens, I promise you.”

Debbie’s decision left fans shocked as she became the responsible parent, and luckily Sarah agreed with what her mum had to say.

One fan penned: “Debbie encouraging Sarah to do the right thing. #Emmerdale."

Charley, who portrays Debbie, has been on maternity leave and she extended it to give her more time to adjust to being a mother-of-three.

The star, who is married to co-star David Metcalfe, gave birth to her adorable third son, Ace, in July 2019, as her Emmerdale character headed off to Scotland.

“We’re in talks, and work has been amazing about giving me the extra time I need.”

After praising the soap for their support, Charley told us she is still adjusting to life as a mother-of-three.
