Emmerdale actor Joe-Warren Plant has been spotted pulling pints in a Blackpool pub to supplement his soap star income. The 22-year-old actor is best known for his role as Jacob Gallagher.

He joined the ITV soap in 2010 when he was just eight years old. and took a break in 2021 to star in Dancing On Ice before returning to the long-running soap six months later.

He's still very much on screen, but has a second job serving pints in a pub in Blackpool. A source told The Sun: "He's still on screen in Emmerdale, so this is a little side line job to earn him some extra cash on the side."

They added: "He's only just recently started working in the pub pulling pints for the last few weeks, he's fairly new to it all and is being taught by other staff on what to do."

Surprised patrons were taken aback to see him behind the bar, but insiders say he knows the owner and is "just helping out a bit when he gets the chance".

Joe's character Jacob was temporarily written out of the soap in November 2020 after he said he was going to stay with his mum in Portugal, which allowed for his Dancing On Ice stint. Sadly his time on the show was brought to a swift end when both he and partner Vanessa Bauer tested positive for Covid.
