Isabel then posted a second photo of her new haircut on Tuesday evening. In the image, the star was pictured with her co-star Laura Norton – who plays Kerry Wyatt in the soap. Isabel looked cool with a pair of oversized glasses, and was once again complimented for her new do. The actress' new look follows shortly after her split from co-star Michael Parr, who played Ross Barton in the show. The 32-year-old actor has recently moved to Los Angeles to start a career over there after leaving Emmerdale last year. With Isabel staying in Yorkshire as she continues acting in Emmerdale, the pair decided to go their separate ways. The news broke at the beginning of February, with The Sun reporting that they felt they had gone their separate ways, but will remain good friends.

The pair had started secretly dating after Michael joined the Emmerdale cast in 2013 - but the private couple only went Instagram official for the first time in 2015 on a romantic trip to Paris. However, Michael still refused to confirm anything last year, when the Mirror asked him if he'd miss his 'secret' girlfriend' when he left the Dales. 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. But if we were to break up it would only be worse when the papers get hold of it." Later in the interview, he slipped up when answering another question about his diet, by saying: "I keep it controlled. But I had two Pop-Tarts for my breakfast. Izzy bought me some." He added: "Oops. I mean, my good friend Isabel."
