Ex Coronation Street star Jonathan Wrather reveals own juice business

Jonathan Wrather has revealed he has swapped acting for running his pwn business and now sells healthy juices. 

The former Coronation Street star, 52, who played Joe Carter until 2003, has set up his Remedy On The Park business in his native Cheshire. 

The actor, who also starred as the evil Pierce Harris in Emmerdale from 2016 to 2017, runs his own juice van located in a park in Alderley Edge, an area which is home to a host of stars including Coleen Rooney. 

He was inspired to create the brand, which sells cold press juices, coffee and nutritious plant-based treats, after finding it hard to eat well while working long hours as an actor. 

He explained to The Sun: ‘As an actor who has spent long periods away from home, touring or away on set, I know it’s not always easy to eat well and look after myself.

‘I bought a juicer and began researching and reading religiously about nutrition and juicing. It was a timely and obvious way to help safeguard my health, and not least that of my children.

‘Getting a healthy balance of the good stuff into my kids alongside the treats can be a bit of a battle!’

Jonathan worked to make sure his drinks are both nutritious and delicious in order to encourage his children to choose them over sugary and artificial offerings. 

He added: ‘It was somewhat of a revelation that nutritious can be delicious! Not only this but it made simple sense to counter the onset of so called, “lifestyle diseases” that too many of us predictably suffer from.’

As well as his soap roles, Jonathan has also previously starred in a host of TV shows including Fat Friends, Waterloo Road and Casualty.
