She explained: "There was a definite feeling of deja vu, but Kelvin and I managed to get back into it very quickly. We're very comfortable working together."
Sammy - who has a five-year-old daughter Mia with her ex-fiance, footballer David Dunn - revealed the pair's characters are set to spend a lot more time together after they accidentally end up in bed.
She told Soaplife magazine: "Emotions run high and they start kissing. Andy instigates it but Katie hardly pulls away. She thinks, 'Oh sod it! Why not?' And they end up in bed. She regrets it. She still cares for Andy but feels getting back with him just wouldn't work. Andy clearly wants it to be more than just a one-off.
"He's hurt when she tells him how she feels."
