Sam Dingle was born on the 16th August 1977 to Zak Dingle and Nellie Dingle, and was the brother of Butch Dingle and Tina Dingle. Sam's mother's family hailed from Ireland. He had learning difficulties at school and as he got older turned to crime. In about 1993 or 1994, Sam was sent to a young offenders home.
1995-1998EditIn February 1995, Sam Dingle arrived back at the Dingle house after his release from a young offenders home. Blaming Luke McAllister for Ben's death, Sam once asked his dad if he could sort Luke out in The Woolpack but Nellie told Sam to stay out of it. He pretended he kidnapped Robert Sugden and demanded ransom money when Robert had just run away. Sam was later arrested and sent to prison for a few months. Upon his release in July 1995 he and Butch threw stones at Luke McAllister. Sam did community service and was soon taken on as a labourer by Eric Pollard in August 1995. Eric used him as a skivvy and sometimes conned Sam due to Sam being a bit simple. In October 1995 Sam helped his family in the war against Frank Tate. Sam even shouted at Frank but Frank said nothing back.
In February 1998 Sam did favours for Kathy Glover and she even took him to dinner. In 1998 Sam was involved in an armed robbery and he was jailed in April that year.
2000-EditIn 2000 Sam was released from prison but still got involved in some dodgy schemes with Eric.
