Emmerdales Liv Dingle star focuses on new career after mixed feelings over exit

Emmerdale star Isobel Steele has opened up about her exit from the ITV soap, after leaving her role as Liv Dingle in October 2022.

The 22 year old, who joined the cast of Emmerdale in 2016, exited the soap last year with her character Liv being killed off in tragic scenes.

Isobel has now revealed what she's been up to in the months since her soap exit and shared what she hopes to do next after taking the plunge and relocating to London from Manchester.

While she's still focusing on her acting career, she's also been putting more energy into her music with her new single being released on 14 April.

In an interview with Metro.co.uk, she shared an update on her next career move, saying: "I’m still auditioning plenty so it’s a funny one. They’re both very different for me in terms of what it requires me to do. The acting, my agent’s great and they’re finding me great things to audition for. I’m doing self tapes weekly."

Isobel went on to explain that she's now got the time to focus on her music properly and is in the process of getting her songs released while getting "better at the marketing side of things".

She also spoke about her decision to leave Emmerdale, admitting she isn't concerned about not being able to go back to the ITV soap.

"I don’t think it makes too much difference, to be honest, in terms of me. I decided I wanted to leave the show and I’ve left the show and that’s all I need to concern myself about. I wanted to leave to do other things and that’s what’s happened," she told the publication.

Isobel added: "Whether I can go back or not is something I wouldn’t have thought about anyway, so in the current moment it’s not been affected by that decision, so I’m happy either way. It was nice to get to do dramatic scenes at the end and really go for it and really push myself."

The 22 year old revealed she's still in contact with her Emmerdale co-stars, saying she talks to them "all the time" and "can't wait" to see them in the near future.

Her comments come after she admitted having "mixed feelings" about her character being killed off.

"I first told the producers I wanted to leave in September 2021," she said. "When they phoned me in April to tell me Liv was going to be killed in a storm, I had mixed feelings. I was excited because it meant I got to be in the 50th celebrations with a huge storyline, but equally I knew it meant I would never be coming back."

Isobel played Liv for six years until her character died during the soap's explosive 50th birthday episode.

Newlywed Liv was crushed by a caravan as a wind storm ravaged Emmerdale village and her exit was an emotional one.

Liv and husband Vinny Dingle were left lifeless after being crushed by the vehicle while making their way to The Woolpack to look after Paddy Kirk's daughter Eve. Vinny survived the accident but Liv unfortunately didn't pull through.
