It is said to have happened while the two actors were travelling to set to film the dramatic waterfall stunt that saw Isabel’s character Victoria be dragged over the edge.

According to the paper, the two stars were caught up in the row as they were filming with Aaron, who plays personal trainer Ellis Chapman.

Tempers are then said to have flared off camera.

The source claimed: “It left a lot of those present at the filming feeling uncomfortable. It was a very heated situation. Tempers were running very high. It was tense and bosses got to hear about what had gone on very quickly.”

It is also claimed that Matthew and Isabel took a break from filming so bosses could investigate what went on.

One insider added: “While they were on set a comment was made which unintentionally caused offence, and an argument broke out among some of the cast members. This was a massive deal for all of them and obviously everyone was under pressure to make scenes work.”

The source continued that Emmerdale takes these kind of ­allegations “very seriously”.

They claimed that Matthew and Isabel did not film scenes while “enquiries” were made.

What was the outcome?

After investigating the matter fully, bosses ruled out taking any further action, it’s claimed.

As a result, their absence will be explained in the coming weeks with the news Victoria and David have gone to Portugal to visit Diane Sugden.
