Emmerdale stars speak out after shooting soap’s ‘biggest ever stunt’ in water rapids in Stockton

The stars of the ITV soap were spotted filming one of the shows “biggest ever stunts” in waters at Tees Barrage.

Emmerdale actors Isabel Hodgins, who plays Victoria Sugden, and Matthew Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe, were pictured in the white water at Stockton earlier today (Wednesday, September 1).

Images, captured by Teesside Live, show both of the ITV soap actors seemingly floundering in the waters.

The pair appear to drift apart during the filming of the dramatic scenes – which Matthew has dubbed as one of the show’s “biggest ever stunts”, the publication reports.

One person who saw the filming said that Matthew, who was wearing a helmet, had appeared to be swooped across the rapids section of the waters while shooting the scenes.

However, once filming was over the pair said it had been “fantastic” – although they admitted they were in need of a cuppa after filming in the cold waters.

“We’ve just been filming one of the biggest stunts that Emmerdale has ever done at Tees Barrage,” said Matthew.

“And it’s been fantastic – and cold.”

“So much fun, and so cold!”, agreed Isabel. “Let’s go and get a cuppa,” said Matthew.
