Michael Parr and Isabel Hodgins have reportedly split.

The couple - who both starred on ITV soap "Emmerdale" - began dating in 2015, but reportedly decided to call it quits a few months ago when Michael left his role as Ross Barton on "Emmerdale" in order to try and crack America, whilst Isabel, who plays Victoria Sugden, stayed behind.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "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.They had a meaningful relationship and they'll remember the good times."

Isabel is "Emmerdale's longest-running actress and has been playing Victoria since she was 12, whilst Michael joined the show in 2013 and began dating Isabel a couple of years later.

The pair first confirmed their relationship a year after they started dating in July 2016 when each posted snaps from identical locations while on a romantic break in Paris, and Michael later posted a gushing tribute to his partner for her birthday.

Michael left "Emmerdale" last year, and has since moved to America to try and land a role in Hollywood.

He said of his plans: "My granddad fought in Vietnam and got based over in Warrington, England, met my nan, who was a Scouser, shipped them over to Brooklyn, because his family are from Brooklyn.

"When he was going round the airbases my mum was born in Oregon and my mum was born in Mississippi.

"I feel like I've had a big American influence in my life, obviously because my mum is American. I feel like it's always calling me. At some point I will [live there].

"I just think it'd be so cool to just maybe do a year in New York and maybe go for it in LA, see if I can get some work out there."
