The actor, 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.

And Matthew put any bad blood aside for the time being as he cooked eggs for a family breakfast on Sunday, sharing a clip of himself in the kitchen on Instagram.

He could be seen standing over the hob as he nursed an egg in the pan while his wife and Emmerdale co-star Charley Webb, 33, filmed him.

Matthew and Isabel are said to have fallen out while filming a soap scene which involved a dramatic stunt.

A source told The Sun: ‘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.’

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 were contacted by MailOnline for a comment.
