Emmerdale star Isobel Steele has revealed the heartbreaking news that her dog Ralph has died.

The actress, who portrays Liv Flaherty on the ITV soap, took to social media to share the emotional update with fans.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Isobel wrote: ‘Rest in peace Ralph. I love you so much. Never forget you.’

The 21-year-old, alongside her caption, shared a photo of Ralph beside her other dog.

Isobel joined the cast of Emmerdale in 2016, portraying Liv – the younger sister of mainstay Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller).

Liv has been at the centre of many storylines since making her debut, including a hard-hitting alcoholism storyline, as well as becoming a suspect in the murder of Ben Tucker, who was murdered by killer Meena Jutla.

Aaron believed that Liv was to blame for the murder, and he subsequently left the village.

He returned earlier this week and has been hoping to make amends. Liv, however, has struggled to forgive him for abandoning her.

‘It’s something she’s really struggled with over this year’ Isobel told Metro.co.uk.

‘Aaron leaving was a massive hole in her life, she’s really had to work to get over that.’

Emmerdale, meanwhile, will air its special 50th anniversary episodes later this month, which will see the eponymous village devastated by a killer storm.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV.
