Emmerdale’s Sammy Winward shared a sweet throwback snap with her husband as a teenager.
The actress, 36 gushed about her rarely-seen husband Martyn Hardy as they celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary on Wednesday.
She captioned the adorable Instagram snap by writing: "It's always been you… I first met you when I was 11 years old and remember thinking you were way out of my league.
"I still feel the same all these years later. 5 years married today to my best friend in the whole world who I also get to call my husband. marts xxx."
The picture showed the pair cosying up in the photo booth-style frame as they posed for the camera.
A fresh-faced Sammy wore her hair in a low ponytail while Martyn opted for a curtain haircut.
Her celeb pals wasted no time in gushing over the star’s sweet post while penning congratulatory messages.
Co-star Charley Webb wrote: “Well that’s finished me. Best wedding, best week of my life. Never mind yours. Love you both.”
Sammy responded with: “The best week in life” before hinting at renewing her wedding vows in Greece. “Defs have to renew our vows in Myks!! Xxx,” she added.
Another pal commented: “Can’t believe this is 5 years ago. Best week ever! Love you both so much.”
“Aww, such a lovely sweet story. Happy anniversary to you both,” wrote another Instagram user as one other chimed: “What a couple fair play, both 10/10”.
Sammy became a child soap star when she joined the cast of Emmerdale in 2001 at the tender age of 15 playing the character Katie Sugden.
She played the role for 14 years until 2015 when Sammy left to pursue other opportunities and the popular character was killed off as she fell through rotten floorboards after being pushed by ex-lover Robert.
Sammy is reported as saying she is often asked if she is likely to return to the hit soap but she has to remind people her character is dead. The TV personality has said she was glad the soap decided to kill the character off as it makes it "more final" for the actress.
The actress shares her 16-year-old daughter Mia with her ex-fiancé footballer David Dunn. The couple split just months after she was born.
Last year, Sammy shocked fans with a stunning photo of her lookalike daughter.
She captioned the Instagram snap: "16 next week @miawinwarddunn following in my footsteps (even though she’s a better actress than I ever was at that age!).”
She also mentioned how Mia has entered “into the crazy world of acting”.
