Sammy Winward insists she has no plans to appear in a reality TV series following her exit from 'Coronation Street' after thirteen years on the soap

Sammy Winward will "never" appear in a reality show.

The 'Emmerdale' actress - who is set to exit the ITV soap in the new year - insists she has no interest in remaining in the limelight by taking part in reality TV such as 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' or 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

She said: "I would never do a reality show. The thought of doing them is terrifying. Too much stress and worrying about what people would say if I did something wrong.

"I've been approached to do a few shows but always turned them down."

The 29-year-old star - who has played Katie Addyman in Corrie for 13 years - admits she's tempted by the idea of 'Strictly Come Dancing' but claims she wouldn't be able to cope with the public scrutiny.

The blonde beauty - who reportedly sparked a reality TV bidding war following the announcement she'd quit the soap - told The Sun newspaper: "I would love to do Strictly if it wasn't filmed. I suppose my dancing background might help. I would love to go and learn all the steps but only if it wasn't filmed for TV."

Meanwhile, Sammy has confessed filming scenes where Katie marries on-off love Andy Sugden (Kelvin Fletcher) for the soap's Christmas special was bittersweet.

She added: "There were lots of tears. It reminded Kelvin and I how long we have been on 'Emmerdale' for."
