EMMERDALE'S biggest minx is about to find herself at the centre of another love triangle.

Storylines for Katie Sugden are starting to spice up again - and Bolton actress Sammy Winward, who plays the character, says she is loving it.

The former Turton School pupil, aged 22, returned to the soap last year after taking maternity leave to have her first child, Mia.

She said: "Since Katie returned to Emmerdale she has being moping around playing the housewife and setting up the business. But now the storylines are getting a little more steamy - maybe too steamy for 7pm!"

In an upcoming episode, Katie enjoys a passionate kiss with David Metcalfe who is seeing Del Dingle. The stolen moment takes place as David, played by Matthew Wolfenden, drops her off at home following a party.

But one thing leads to another- and the couple end up in bed together.

Stills from the soap show Chas Dingle, played by Lucy Pargeter, confronting Katie about sleeping with David.

And although refusing to give away any of the plot, Sammy did say: "Katie has a real feisty side to her, which really has not come out. But now I think she is ready for a fling, and who better than to have it with than David."

Katie was labelled a heartbreaker after she married her fiancé Andy Sugden, while having an affair with his brother, Rob.

She added: "Katie has been in the centre of a love triangle before with Andy and Rob. She has had a tough time with men and now she just wants a bit fun and there is definitely attraction between the two."

Sammy admitted Matthew, who plays David, is "a good kisser!"

She divides her time in Yorkshire and Bolton bringing up Mia, who will be two this June. She split from Mia's dad, Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Dunn, in 2005.
