Emmerdales Victoria Sugden child star now as shes all grown up 17 years after show

Many of our favourite soap characters have been portrayed by multiple actors, from EastEnders' Ben Mitchell to Coronation Street's Peter Barlow.

There's been several recasts on Emmerdale over the years too, including the role of Victoria Sugden. Three different actresses have taken on the role Victoria – daughter of Jack Sugden and Sarah Connolly – since she was introduced in 1994.

Jessica Heywood played Victoria, who is the longest serving female character on the ITV soap, up until 1997 and the role was then taken over by actress Hannah Midgley, who was just four years old when she made her Emmerdale debut.

Hannah, now 29, left Emmerdale in July 2006 in a bid to focus on her studies. She appeared in 341 episodes of the ITV soap during her nine-year stint. The child star also played Toddler Winrow in A Touch Of Frost in 1995.

She kept a low profile after leaving her soap role, but eight years later returned to acting when she was cast as Rosie Hutchinson in the BBC One drama series In the Club.

The series followed six couples who attended a local Parent Craft class during their pregnancy. Hannah appeared in both series one and two of In The Club, which also starred the likes of Will Mellor, Jonathan Kerrigan and Tara Fitzgerald.

After In The Club Hannah returned to keeping a low profile and has remained out of the spotlight ever since, with her social media accounts mainly inactive or set to private.

After Hannah left Emmerdale in 2006, the role of Victoria was taken over by actress Isabel Hodgins.

Isabel, 29, has remained on the ITV soap ever since, having taken on a number of hard-hitting storylines over the past 13 years. Isabel, then age 12, landed the role in August and her first scenes aired in October 2006.

Her portrayal of Victoria has seen her receive numerous awards nominations over the years, with her first two nominations coming just one year into her Emmerdale stint.

In 2007 she was nominated for Best Newcomer at both the TV Choice and TV Quick awards. Isabel was also nominated for Spectacular Scene of the Year at the British Soap Awards that same year.

Over the years, the actress has also been nominated for Best Young Actress at the Inside Soap Awards as well as Best Dramatic Performance from a Young Actor or Actress category at the British Soap Awards.

Despite losing out in 2007, Isabel won the Spectacular Scene of the Year award in 2009. She received the award for the scene where Victoria fell through ice and discovered a dead body.
