Emmerdale’s Matthew Wolfenden and Isabel Hodgins are said to have been caught up in a ‘very heated’ row during filming for one of the soap’s biggest stunts.
According to reports, the pair, who play couple David Metcalfe and Victoria Sugden, clashed as they shot explosive waterfall scenes for last month’s Super Stunt Week.
Sources have claimed that tempers ‘flared off camera’ which made those filming feel ‘uncomfortable’.
It’s been said that bosses quickly got involved and investigated the matter while Matthew and Isabel took a break from filming at Tees Barrage water park in Stockton-on-Tees.
‘While they were on set a comment was made which unintentionally caused offence, and an argument broke out among some of the cast members, a source said.
‘This was a massive deal for all of them and obviously, everyone was under pressure to make scenes work.
‘Emmerdale take these kinds of allegations very seriously, and Matthew and Isabel did not film scenes while inquiries were made.
‘It was not a decision they took lightly, as it had huge consequences for the team as they are massive characters. But the bosses felt it was a necessary step to take.’
The insider added to The Sun that bosses investigated the matter fully and were now satisfied that no further action is necessary.
Matthew, 41, and Isabel, 27, were back to filming Emmerdale last week.
They were not suspended and have not been disciplined.
An Emmerdale spokeswoman told the publication: ‘While we would never comment on individual cases, Emmerdale has robust policies in place to deal with any allegations brought to our attention and take the appropriate steps.
‘Neither actor has been suspended from Emmerdale.’
