In 2016 Danny Miller, 32, was accused of having an affair with Emmerdale co-star Isabel Hodgins, 29 – despite being in a relationship with Hollyoaks actress Kirsty-Leigh Porter, 34.
Isabel was dating fellow Dales actor Michael Parr, 36, at the time, and it all came to a head when Kirsty-Leigh found incriminating texts on Danny's phone.
The Sun reported: "The tension between them caused major problems on set, because Michael made it crystal clear he didn’t want to be around Danny."
Shockingly, Michael stayed with Isabel after the affair until 2019 and was said to be most angry with Danny for going behind his back.

For Kirsty-Leigh, it was the final straw, as she had already forgiven Danny's alleged infidelity with a prostitute.
Danny has now settled down with Steph Jones, with whom he shares a son, while Kirsty-Leigh has a child with her fiance Paul Barber.
On-again, off-again couple Pete Wicks, 35, and Megan McKenna, 30, once split over his behaviour with co-star Chloe Sims, 41.
The pair were seen in 2017 having a furious bust-up in the street, with a source telling The Sun: "Megan and Pete bumped into each other on the street in Essex and all hell broke loose."
"They immediately started a heated discussion after Megan saw pictures of Pete 'cosying up to' Chloe Sims recently."
The pictures, which sparked Megan's fury, showed Chloe's arms wrapped around Pete during a close moment in London.
Megan was said to be fuming that Chloe hadn't bothered to reach out to her when the photos were published.
The source continued: "Megan accused Pete of cheating on her and sleeping with a girl in Scotland and he threw it back in her face, saying 'I wasn’t cheating but I did text her, and it doesn’t matter because you’re sleeping with your ex!"
The couple split up the previous year after Pete cheated with glamour model Jacqui Ryland.
Love 'cheat' letter
Claire King, 61, is no stranger to being the centre of heartbreak on Emmerdale as Kim Tate, but was left devastated when it spilled over into her personal life.
She claimed her husband Peter Amory, 58, who played her stepson Chris Tate, had an affair with co-star Samantha Giles, 51, while she was away working on Bad Girls.
However, Peter and Samantha claimed nothing happened between them.
"I had a feeling that something was going on," she told the Mirror back in 2005.
"I was working in London and we were spending less and less time together. I was travelling back to Yorkshire every weekend.
"I remember Pete saying that I only came back to see my dogs and horses… and I thought: 'Well, yeah, and to catch you at it!'"
Her suspicions were seemingly confirmed when Samantha's then-partner penned a letter claiming their spouses were indeed cheating.
Claire also claimed Peter admitted his infidelity to her, telling her he put a stop to it. But it allegedly started up again.
They split for good in 2004 and Claire claims she has forgiven Samantha for the infidelity after she apologised at a friend's funeral.
While Kym Marsh is now a happily married woman with Army Major Scott Ratcliffe, her first marriage was far from smooth.
The Coronation Street actress, 46, allegedly embarked on an affair with co-star Oliver Mellor, 42, despite being married to Jamie Lomas, 47.
Oliver, who played Dr Matt Carter on the soap, claimed they had a five-month affair after falling deeply in love while filming scenes together in 2013.
Kym's infidelity came after she allegedly forgave Jamie for his cheating on her ahead of their wedding.
Oliver previously told The Sunday Mirror: "It wasn’t something we intended to happen, but we couldn’t stop our feelings."
At the time of the affair, Oliver was engaged to PR executive Charlotte Bury, but that didn't stop him from acting on his feelings for Kym.
The actor, now married to Rhian Sugden, claimed it was "impossible to ignore" his attraction to Kym.
But he said they ended it as Kym felt guilty over the pain it would cause her family if they found out.
Cheating on live TV
While most people who fall in love with co-stars choose pursue things away from the camera, Stephanie Davies made no effort to hide it.
The former Hollyoaks actress, 29, entered the Celebrity Big Brother House in 2016 as a taken woman, with boyfriend Sam Reece rooting for her to win.
But things quickly turned sour when she got intimate with Irish model Jeremy McConnell, 33 – including having sex with him on camera.
Sam, who has been on Ex on the Beach, was left "heartbroken and devastated" by Stephanie's actions as the series progressed.
When she left the CBB House, the pair split and she continued to see McConnell, eventually welcoming a son Caben Albi with him in January 2017.
