Emmerdale's Isabel Hodgins glams up for girls night out as soap race probe is revealed

EMMERDALE star Isabel Hodgins put on a glamorous display as she headed for a night out on the town with pals after the show was rocked by a race probe.

The 27-year-old opted for a figure-hugging all-black ensemble as she posed for a snap with her gal pals.


Isabel finished off the glam look with a pop of bright red lipstick and a sleek down do.

She and her girlfriends looked to be having a whale of a time as they beamed at the camera.

The outing comes after it was revealed that Isabel who plays Victoria Sugden in Emmerdale, and her co-star Matthew Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe, have been caught up in a race probe at work.

It is claimed a mixed-race actress was upset by a comment on set before her accent was mimicked.

David Matthew, 41, has been absent from filming following a complaint that an inappropriate comment was made to a female mixed-race cast member.

Both face claims that the actress’s accent was mimicked.

David and Isabel both categorically deny all the allegations and are said to believe that there had been a misunderstanding.

Following the incident, Matthew is also alleged to have rowed with co-star Aaron Anthony.

Although Matthew and Isabel have not been formally suspended by ITV bosses, neither has filmed scenes for the popular Dales soap since September while enquiries continue.

A source said last night: “It is common knowledge on set that Matthew and Isabel are not filming at the moment following a complaint.

“This all came about after a conversation between them and another actress — during which the alleged remark was made.

“An accusation was also made that the actress’s accent had been mimicked.”

The source continued: “We have been told that Aaron brought this up with Matthew subsequently and that there was a tense conversation between them. Matthew and Isabel stopped filming afterward.

“Emotions have been running high on set ever since but no one knows what to believe.

“The female cast member who was involved is filming as normal, but she wishes that she wasn’t entangled in it.”
