Emmerdale star Sammy Winward has revealed that she loves living at Home Farm and being lady of the manor.
The 26-year-old actress joined the soap 11 years ago as Katie Sugden.
Katie has recently found love with businessman Declan Macey (Jason Merrells).
Winward told PA: "It's nice to be the lady of the manor.
"When I first started I was a schoolgirl, in detention and then living on the farm and now it's completely different - strutting round the manor house."
Katie and Declan's sister Megan (Gaynor Faye) unite over their mistrust of Megan's long-lost son Robbie.
Declan decides to invite Robbie (Jamie Shelton) to move into Home Farm.
Sammy said: "I hope Katie and Megan become closer.
"They're completely different but if they did actually have each other's backs and were friends they could do very well together and be happy in that house."
She added: "It has been difficult because they hated each other from day one.
"It's quite a weird relationship, literally from the off they were like 'I hate you!'. But I do hope they could get close and be two girls in Home Farm that actually get on.
"We all went out for a big Home Farm meal the other night. Me, Gaynor, Jason and Nicola (Wheeler) and Jamie. It was really lovely just to get to know each other a bit better."
