Emmerdale stars Matthew Wolfenden and Isabel Hodgins are likely to be off-screen until the new year following their reported filming rift.
Last week, Emmerdale bosses were forced to address rumours of a fallout between Matthew and Isabel as they filmed stunts for their big Super Soap Week – they play David Metcalfe and Victoria Sugden respectively.

Matthew and Isabel’s characters have been temporarily written out of the soap – although Emmerdale bosses have emphasised they haven’t been suspended.
