Emmerdales Matthew Wolfenden finally returns to set after race row allegations

Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden has returned to the soap following his reported race row which took place while on set in September.

The star, who is best known to fans for playing the role of David Metcalfe in the long-running soap, was reportedly seen at the ITV studios last week.

Fans also spotted Matthew leaving the set which is located in Leeds.

However, it is not yet known if he was filming scenes as his character David or whether he was there for another reason.

The 41-year-old had not filmed scenes for Emmerdale after he became involved in an alleged row with co-star Aaron Anthony over comments he and Isabel Hodgins reportedly made.

According to reports, the long-standing actors inappropriately mimicked an actress who is of mixed heritage.

Matthew and Isabel, 28, who plays Victoria Sugden, stopped filming for the soap while the inquiries were made.

The pair also denied that they did anything wrong or made any offensive comments, however sources claimed Aaron, 28, had an argument with Matthew following the alleged remarks.

Last week, The Sun reported that Aaron, who plays Ellis Chapman in the Dales, had quit the soap and told bosses he will not be returning to the show when his contract expires.

A source told the publication: "Aaron is bitterly angry about this situation and he has had to be persuaded to come back to Leeds to film his scenes in recent months.

"He has done some filming over the last couple of weeks, but the understanding is that those scenes will be his last.

"He has been very vocal in his opinions about the allegations and about the way in which the enquiries have been handled by the bosses.

To explain Matthew and Isabel's absence, Emmerdale writers put their characters on a plane to Portugal but they've now been away from the show for almost two months.

The pair's no-show has also led viewers to question when they will be returning.

Taking to Twitter last week, one fan wrote: "Has anyone told David and Victoria about the latest travel restrictions & PCR requirements?"

While another questioned: "When are David and Victoria coming back?"
