Emmerdale‘s Matthew Wolfenden and his co-star Isabel Hodgins won’t return to screens until 2022 following their on-set row, according to reports. Neither have been seen on screen since October 28.

Despite both actors having returned to the Harewood set, filming for the soap takes place six weeks ahead of airtime, meaning neither will appear in Christmas storylines, said to be ‘a disappointment for the bosses and scriptwriters’.

Matthew, 41, who plays David Metcalfe on the soap, and the actress, 27, who plays his on-screen girlfriend Victoria Sugden, reportedly clashed while shooting new scenes with Aaron Anthony, while the cast were filming dramatic waterfall scenes in Stockton-on-Tees for a special episode.

A source told The Sun: ‘It is very unlikely that Matthew and Isabel will be back on screen before Christmas [as] they have only just returned to the set, and as Emmerdale is filmed six weeks in advance, that puts their return date in January.’

The added: ‘It was a disappointment for the bosses and scriptwriters, but they of course understood that the appropriate enquiries needed to be made.’

Matthew’s representative declined to comment when approached by MailOnline.

Isabel’s representatives have also been approached for comment.
