Mike Parr is considering appearing in an adult film after "a year of not working".
The former 'Emmerdale' star took to Instagram to share a message he received asking if he would be interested "in a porn opportunity" based in London, where he lives, and the 34-year-old actor admitted it was looking like "the only option I have left".
The message read: "Mike hello.
"Would you be interested in a porn opportunity, with a UK based professionally run company with a large share of the market?
"If so get back to me and I will send you the details, it is based in London where you are. Thanks."
Mike wrote: "(Ross Gellar voice) I WILL TAKE IT!!!..After a year of not working this is actually looking like the only option I have left :) (sic)"
Several soap stars past and present encouraged Mike to take up the offer.
Jack P Shepherd – who plays Coronation Street's David Platt – commented: "Do it. Be mint experience. And one for the book"
Former 'Emmerdale' actor Kelvin Fletcher (Andy Sugden) posted: "Why not"
Mike made his final 'Emmerdale' appearance as Ross Barton on November 2nd, 2018, and admitted just a few weeks after his last-ever episode aired that he was "bored" after being out of work for two months.
He tweeted: "I know there are many factors for why ppl don't/can't work but in my experience of not having a job which has almost lasted two months now.... it is boring. So boring. There's just naff all to do! (sic)"
His former co-star Samantha Giles (Bernice Blackstock) was quick to reply with words of support, telling him to "hold his nerve", and adding that "something good will come up".
When a fan suggested he should have stayed on the soap, she replied: "He was brave to go and he's an actor so he wants to play lots of roles! Never play safe- life is for living and that means taking risks!! (sic)"
