The actor will arrive on-screen in mid-February, and the actor, who previously starred in ‘Coronation Street’, has shared his excitement ahead of his ‘Emmerdale’ debut.
“I am thrilled to be joining ‘Emmerdale’,” he states. “It's a great opportunity to be offered the chance to create a new character in one of TV's most popular shows and I'm very excited to be working with such an outstanding cast and team.”
Jonathan’s yet another star to switch soaps, and TV fans will recognise him from a number of shows, including ‘Corrie’, in which he played Joe Carter.
His on-screen wife Tess is currently at the centre of an affair storyline, following her secret trysts with Paddy Kirk, and Pierce’s arrival is set to shake things up.
While Paddy knows Tess is married, he’s never anticipated that her husband would arrive in the Dales.
There’s been plenty going on in ‘Emmerdale’ since the New Year, but things are set to change following the departure of executive producer Kate Oates, who has left the soap to take over from Stuart Blackburn as ‘Corrie’ boss.
