Emmerdale star Aaron Anthony has left the show amid ongoing racist row that left the stars Matthew Wolfenden and Isabel Hodgins absent in soap.

An investigation was launched after a clash at the location while stunts were filmed in which apparently derogatory remarks were made.

The temporary David and Victoria characters were written while the incident was under investigation, with a hastily written story stating that they were on vacation.

But now Anthony, who plays Ellis Chapman, seems unhappy with what has turned out and is leaving the show.

A source told The Sun: ‘Aaron was furious about the situation and he had to be persuaded to come back Leeds to shoot his scenes in recent months.

‘He’s done some shooting over the past few weeks, but understands those will be his last.

‘He has been very vocal in his comments about the allegations and about how the bosses’ claims are handled.

“He now feels his place on the show is unattainable.”

An ITV spokesman told Metro.co.uk: ‘We do not comment on actor contracts.’

Aaron’s character Ellis is currently in the middle of two main storylines.

Al’s nemesis Gavin threatened Ellis’ life if he didn’t repay the money he was owed and elsewhere Ellis was trying to support Priya as she got over her burn wound.
