Former Emmerdale star Jonathan Wrather now sells juices from a van in a dramatic career U-turn.

Swapping soaps for smoothies, the actor now runs his own juice van.

The 51-year-old star starred in the ITV soap as villain Pierce Harris and was married to Rhona in the popular soap.

Fans may also recognise him as ex-con man Joe Carter in Coronation Street.

Moving from London to Cheshire, Jonathan wanted to overhaul his lifestyle, which was when he fell in love with juicing fresh fruit and vegetables.

Speaking to The Sun, the former soap opera staple said that when he began juicing, he became intrigued by the health benefits that can be gained from drinking "raw cold pressed fruit and vegetable juices".

Touching upon his busy lifestyle as an on-the-go actor, he explained how it can be difficult to look after yourself and ensure you're getting all of the correct nutrients.

He told the publication that he bought a juicer and started to research the nutrition of juicing, "It was a timely and obvious way to help safeguard my health, and not least that of my children."

The actor-turned-juicer now runs Remedy On The Park, which is based on Alderley Edge Park in Cheshire.

On his company's website, they say that the brand is "focused on health, wellbeing and promoting sustainability".

The mobile juicing bar produces their own fresh cold pressed fruit and vegetable juices, as well as plant-based smoothies.

Remedy On The Park also serve premium coffee and wellness lattes, and "homemade wholesome bakes".

The company's motto is simple, and reads: "Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food."

Jonathan's career U-turn is a stark change from his Emmerdale acting stint, when he played evil villain Pierce who raped his wife Rhona Goskrik. The actor exited the soap in 2017, but came back for a short cameo in 2020.

Before his stint in the Dales, he played Joe Carter in Corrie, a con man who arrived on the cobbles after a prison sentence. He scammed the factory and left shortly after.
