A source told the publication: ‘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.’  

‘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 insider added that Emmerdale took the allegations seriously and that Matthew and Isabel did not film scenes while inquiries were made.

The matter was then resolved and no further action was taken. The pair were then back on set last week.

The on-screen couple reportedly took a break from filming at Tees Barrage water park in Stockton-on-Tees while bosses made inquiries. 

The stunt was to help mark ITV’s Super Soap Week last month.

An Emmerdale spokeswoman said: ‘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.’ 

Representatives for the pair as well as ITV have been contacted by MailOnline for a comment.

Matthew is married to fellow Emmerdale star Charley Webb who played the part of Debbie Dingle on the soap.  

It comes after earlier this year a source told The Sun that ‘there are no current plans for Charley to return as Debbie at this time However the door is always open for her,’ the source said. 

They reassured that: ‘Debbie’s daughter and her family are in the village so it’s definitely not a permanent goodbye.’

Charley’s character Debbie promised her daughter Sarah that she was only taking a short visit to Scotland to find a manager for her business there. 

However, Charley’s husband Matthew, 41, revealed on This Morning that she doesn’t want to come back to the show while Covid-19 restrictions are in place.  

The father-of-two said: ‘To be honest filming there at the moment with Covid regulations is tough.’

‘Everyone’s rallied round and made it what it is. But yeah, I think for her to go back now when all this is still happening is not what she wants to do.’

‘I think she’ll wait until all the restrictions have dropped,’ he said.
