British soap stars Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden have separated after a four-year engagement.

The actors, who appear in Emmerdale together, became engaged in 2009 and are parents to a three-year-old son, Buster, who was born in 2010.

An Emmerdale spokesperson has confirmed the split, but insisted the co-stars remain on amicable terms, saying, "Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden have today confirmed that they have separated. They will remain friends and are focusing on their little boy."

The stars play Debbie Dingle and David Metcalfe in the long-running U.K. soap opera.
