Emmerdales Matthew Wolfenden enjoying dates with co-star after marriage split

Matthew Wolfenden is reportedly enjoying dates with his Elf the Musical colleague Heather Scott Martin, following his split from former co-star Charley Webb.

Emmerdale stars Matthew and Charley, who share three children together, confirmed they had split after five years of marriage on Instagram last week.

The 43-year-old is now reported to be enjoying dates with his rumoured new love interest Heather, who he is believed to have met while starring in Elf.

In the show, Matthew plays the lead role Buddy and Heather is listed as the dance captain.

Pictures of the pair shared last week show them looking relaxed in each other’s company as they walked together in London.

A source told The Sun: “Heather was wary about getting too involved with Matthew too soon, but is head over heels.

“She was trying not to be seen with him, standing away from the stage door when he emerged from show rehearsals and shows. But now the cat is out of the bag.

“Heather is a clean cut, popular woman who was desperate not to be painted as Matthew’s ‘other woman’. She’s not happy about being thrust into the conversation of his celebrity marriage breakdown.”

According to the publication, the pair had been spotted out several times before he and Charley announced their break-up.

According to The Mirror, Heather is no stranger to a West End stage performing in the likes of Mamma Mia, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast.

She is also a personal trainer who shares inspiring quotes on her page such as: “Leave the past behind, focus on what you can do now.”

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Matthew and Heather for comment.

Last week, he and Charley released a joint statement announcing their split after speculation about their marriage woes grew.

She wrote on Instagram: “It is with love and respect that Charley and I have decided to separate.

“We remain friends and our priority is the love for our children.

“For their sake we would appreciate privacy at this time.”

Ahead of the announcement, Charley was spotted without her wedding ring on and Matthew also unfollowed her on social media.

The former couple met on the set of Emmerdale and tied the knot back in 2018.

Together they share 13-year-old Buster, seven-year-old Bowie, and four-year-old Ace.
