Emmerdale actress Katie Hill was left red-faced on Tuesday after being turned away from ITV studios.
The 19-year-old soap star – who has played Debbie Dingle’s daughter Sarah Sugden on the show since 2017 – took to Instagram to reveal her embarrassing mistake.
Katie confessed she showed up at 7am to start filming, only to be sent home by bosses after realizing she shouldn’t have been there.
Sharing the awkward moment, Katie uploaded a photo of the ITV studios in the morning sun and said: “I don’t get to work at 7am to find out I’m not even there today” with a head-in the hands emoji.
Katie is the fifth actress to play Sarah and is on set most days reading, rehearsing and filming on set.
Her character has been through a lot of trauma, including years in and out of the hospital after a devastating diagnosis.
In 2011, then six-year-old Sarah was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition called Fanconi anemia and required a bone marrow transplant to save her life.
Debbie and Andy decided they needed another baby as neither they nor their family members had grown to Sarah.
Then, later in the year, Sarah’s health took a turn for the worse and she sadly began to develop leukemia. Luckily her brother Jack was born soon and he proved to be the match she needed to survive.
In 2017, it was revealed that Sarah had throat cancer and she was flown to Prague for treatment after a crowdfunding campaign and the help of Debbie’s grandmother, Faith Dingle. Since then, Sarah has continued to suffer from health problems and has collapsed more than once.
In her free time, she often shares clips of her sung covers of well-known songs with her 60,000 followers on Instagram, and enjoys spending time with co-stars off set, including Daisy Campbell, who plays Amelia Spencer.
The embarrassing mistake comes just weeks after another cast member said he was “annoyed” when he called in sick for the first time in 25 years.
Dominic Brunt, who plays popular character Paddy Dingle, has been ill with the coronavirus and has had to take a day off.
He tweeted: “After 25 years at Emmerdale without a day off I’ve succumbed to the dreaded ‘Rona’.
“I’ve been ridiculously cautious, but tomorrow will be the first time in a quarter of a century. Now THAT makes me angry. I’m glad I’m in good health and grateful. love to all.”
