Sometimes we feel like the TV soaps are #real and it's a big no-no for any soap to cross paths, and especially not switch actors.

But, since former Coronation Street actor, Jonathan Wrather, was only in the soap for a year back in 2002, we'll let it slide.

Jonathan is said to be "thrilled" to join the Emmerdale cast, as he's taking on a different role than that of his Corrie character.

He played Joe Carter in Coronation Street, the ultimate bad boy, who stole Steve McDonald's ex-wife's heart. Joe and Karen had a steamy affair on the soap until he left in 2003. 

He's also made appearances in Doctors, Holby City and Casualty over the years, but we're looking forward to him becoming a regular on our screens again.
