Emmerdale’s Charley Webb ‘quits the show for good’ after 19 years
Emmerdale actress Charley Webb has reportedly quit the soap for “good” after 19 years. Her exit comes after her on-screen husband Matthew Wolfenden (David Metcalfe) was embroiled in a race row. It is not known whether Wolfenden, who plays David on the soap, will leave with her. The pair, who have two children together, have been on screen since 1996. The couple were at the centre of a race row after Wolfenden dropped the N-word while singing along to a rap song in the pub. The soap received a number of complaints and the broadcasting regulator Ofcom has launched an investigation into the scenes.
