EMMERDALE stars Matthew Wolfenden and Isabel Hodgins will return to the ITV soap after a race row inquiry.
The pair have been absent from the set since September when it was claimed a mixed-race actress was upset by a comment and her accent allegedly being mimicked.
But it is understood ITV bosses have accepted their explanation that the alleged remark and mimicry were “misheard”.
ITV said it had made a “rigorous enquiry” but no formal action will be taken and they are now expected back on set.
Matthew, 41, who plays David Metcalfe, has been seen at the studios in Leeds. Isabel, 28, who plays his lover Victoria Sugden, was seen at her flat in nearby Harrogate.
