Emmerdale star Isabel Hodgins is a familiar face to soap fans having starred as Victoria Barton since 2006.

But who is she and what do we know about her? Here’s all you need to know.

Who is Isabel Hodgins?

Isabel Victoria Hodgins is a British actress best known for her role as Victoria Barton nee Sugden in Emmerdale.

She’s played the role since it was recast in 2006 when the character was 12 years old.

Isabel is 24 years old and was born and bred in Eccles, Greater Manchester.

Landing the role of Victoria aged just 13, Isabel has little professional training.

However, she was so desperate to make it as an actress she made an appeal in a local paper, the Salford Advertiser, to try and get the funds she needed to spend a year at London's Sylvia Young's Theatre School.

She landed the role in Emmerdale before she could attend.

A year later she was nominated for Best Newcomer at the TV Choice Awards.

Who is Isabel Hodgins dating?

She’s rumoured to be dating Emmerdale co-star Mike Parr who plays Ross Barton in the ITV soap.

It’s thought the couple have been dating for years, but they’re extremely private about their relationship.

Mike appeared to confirm they were together last month. In an interview in the Mirror, he was asked if he would miss working with his girlfriend. He replied: “Maybe. But I’m not saying who she is.
"It’s no one else’s business.

"Social media for relationships can be detrimental. We’re happy so we don’t need to show off.”

However, later in the same interview he seemed to let it slip and said, when asked about keeping healthy: “I keep it controlled. But I had two poptarts for my breakfast. Izzy bought me some."
