ITV Emmerdale’s Charley Webb says she’s ‘ignoring life’ amid Matthew Wolfenden split rumours

Emmerdale star Charley Webb and her co-star husband Matthew Wolfenden are embroiled in claims they’re ready to break-up, with sources saying they’re living ‘separate lives’

Amid reports of a separation with her husband Matthew Wolfenden, Charley Webb of Emmerdale revealed that she’s “ignoring life”. The pair, who first connected on the Emmerdale set in 2007, has been together for 15 years and has three kids.

For months, there have been persistent rumours regarding their relationship’s instability, including allegations of previous infidelity, rejections on social media, and public appearances sans wedding rings. In response to these allegations, Charley posted a selfie on social media with the caption, “Ignoring life and all the jobs I need to do.” I also want to get additional body art.”

In addition to being husband and wife, Matthew, who has been playing David Metcalfe since 2006 and is scheduled to depart the show next year, and Charley, who portrayed endearing businesswoman Debbie Dingle on the well-liked ITV serial opera from 2002 until 2021, are proud parents. Buster, born in April 2010, Bowie, born in December 2015, and Ace, born in July 2019, are their three sons.

Through their frequent posting of updates, pictures, and videos of their three boys on social media, the couple frequently allowed followers to see inside their home. Charley has also been vocal about her challenges as a parent, receiving recognition for her grounded style.

But there have been bumps in Matthew and Charley’s marriage. Rumours have said that Matthew wasn’t always dependable. When a fan named Klaire Holloway claimed she had a one-night stand with the soap star prior to him being married to Charley, he became embroiled in an infidelity scandal in 2013.

“He was very affectionate, but the sex was nothing to write home about,” she told the Sun on Sunday. I became bored since there wasn’t much excitement.” When the news first broke, Matthew tweeted, “Is it just me or does anyone else not sleep properly when there’s a full moon?!” without directly addressing the incident.

Rumours surfaced in early November 2023 that Matt and Charley had split up and were living separate lives. Supporters noticed that Charley had been spotted out without her wedding band and that Matthew had “unfollowed” his wife on Instagram.

When Charley was photographed with her hands hidden at Norwich’s Theatre Royal, it was evident that her wedding rings were on her right hand rather than her left. The couple’s close friends made suggestions that their marriage might be ending.

“Charley and Matthew were in very different places in their lives when they first got together,” a source told The Sun. After having three children and juggling new occupations, everything has changed, and they might not be the same family they once were.”
