    Co-star romance

    Actress Isabel's love life has seen its share of ups and downs. Her character was married to Adam Barton (Adam Thomas) – but off screen she was dating onscreen brother-in-law Mike Parr, who played Ross Barton on the soap. She reportedly began dating Michael, who joined Emmerdale in 2013, in real life a couple of years later.

    Their relationship is said to have ended in 2019 when Michael pursued his acting career in the US. The pair let the cat out of the bag on July 15, 2016, when each posted snaps from identical locations while on a romantic break in Paris.

    Michael, 35, later posted a gushing post about Isabel to mark her birthday. He wrote: "Happy 24th birthday to this little one. Who woulda thought that 5’2 (and a half) could pack so much love, devotion and attitude.

    "Thank you for being the most wonderful and caring best friend a boy could ask for. Love you to the moon and back. X." After three years together the pair finally split as Adam moved to America to pursue his career.

    A source at the time said: "They drifted apart and felt it was better to be mates. He has been throwing himself into his social life and has just been on a lads' hol and she is focusing on work, they're both young and want to follow their dreams.”

    Fling rumours

    Rumours swirled about actress Isabel's involvement with co-star Danny Miller, even while she was in a relationship with their mutual co-star, Michael. Allegations emerged when Danny's former partner, Kirsty-Leigh Porter, discovered text exchanges between Danny and Isabel, leading to tension both on and off the set.

    According to The Sun, the situation became increasingly fraught and a source said: "Isabel and Danny thought they could keep their romance secret, but when Kirsty-Leigh saw the texts on his phone, the game was up. She was furious. Michael was also angry, as he thought he and Danny were close friends.

    The tension between them caused major problems on set because Michael made it crystal clear he didn’t want to be around Danny. The revelations caused arguments among the cast, who split into two camps." Despite the past drama, Isabel has since found happiness in her personal life.
