Isobel Steele has reportedly left Emmerdale after six years on the show, hoping to focus more on her burgeoning music career than acting.
The 21-year-old screen star portrayed Liv Flaherty on the soap opera for six years – starting in January 2016 when she was just 15.
And given the exit, bosses are reportedly planning a dramatic plot twist for her character – which will result in her exit from the show later this month.
