Emmerdale SPOILER: Al Chapman 'is ruthlessly MURDERED in soap whodunnit'

Emmerdale‘s Al Chapman is set to be ruthlessly murdered in shocking upcoming scenes.

It has been reported that the character, played by Michael Wildman, has been targeted by a mystery character, in a soap whodunnit storyline. 

While producers are keeping tight-lipped on the culprit, could it be Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter), who is left furious after discovering Al’s offer for The Woolpack has been significantly reduced by £20,000?

After being coerced by Gavin (Ben Richards) to make the move, Mack (Lawrence Robb) steals Al’s phone and a mystery figure cuts the breaks on his car.

With Kerry (Laura Norton) and Kyle being offered a lift in the mangled car, Cain (Jeff Hordley) realises they are about to board the leaking vehicle.

It follows rumours that Matthew Wolfenden and his on-screen girlfriend Isabel Hodgins will return to ITV soap following a ‘rigorous’ a race row probe.

The stars – who play David Metcalfe and Victoria Sugden – have been absent from the show since September, following claims that ‘the accent of a mixed-raced actress was mimicked’ on set.

The unnamed actress was upset following an inappropriate comment made towards her, before it was claimed her accent was mocked during the fall out. 

According to The Sun, ITV bosses have accepted Matthew, 41, and Isabel’s, 28, explanation that the alleged remark and mimicry were ‘misheard’, with no formal action to be taken against them.

A source revealed to the publication: ‘ITV have conducted a rigorous enquiry into the allegations made, with witness statements taken. Bosses accepted Matthew and Isabel’s explanation and agreed they can return to work.

‘However, it has been made very clear that racism and bullying will not be tolerated by ITV. They have also offered the subject of their alleged remarks guidance about how to deal with the pair’s return. 

Neither actor had been formally suspended by the producers of the Yorkshire-based soap, but they have not filmed scenes since September.   

Back in November, it was revealed that Matthew and Isabel were facing allegations.

Both stars – who joined the soap in 2006 – have categorically denied claims of racism and have suggested the whole thing was a misunderstanding.

An Emmerdale spokesman told MailOnline at the time: ‘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.’   

It was also reported that following the alleged incident, Matthew is said to have rowed with co-star Aaron Anthony, who plays Ellis Chapman in the Dales. 

A source told The Sun: ‘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 went on to say that Matthew and Aaron subsequently had a ‘tense conversation’, adding that afterwards, Matthew and Isabel ‘stopped filming.’

The insider added that ‘Emotions have been running high’ on the set since the incident, with cast unsure ‘what to believe’.

Meanwhile, it’s said that the female cast member at the centre of the race row was continuing to film ‘as normal’, though she wished she ‘wasn’t entangled in it.’

The publication reported that the ‘issue was far from solved’ and as two of Emmerdale’s biggest stars their sudden absence from set caused major ‘production issues’.

Both Matthew and Isabel were embroiled in the soap’s huge Super Soap Week stunt in October, where their characters had plunged into fast-flowing rapids after the rope bridge collapsed.

While Isabel’s character Victoria faced further turmoil when twisted Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) tried to drown her, with Victoria having survived.

However, with both Isabel and Matthew gone, it has led to scripts being ‘hastily rewritten’, which has caused some confusion for dedicated viewers.
