Emmerdale star Mike Parr celebrates turning 36 with jaw-dropping body transformation after back injury

Emmerdale star Michael Parr showed off his impressive body transformation as he celebrated his 36th birthday over the weekend.

The actor, who played Ross Barton on the ITV soap from 2013 to 2018, revealed his dramatic new look following a nasty back injury he suffered last November.

Mike shared his physical transformation as he posted a photo of himself on Instagram in nothing but a pair of tiny black shorts, modelling his chiselled torso and toned thighs to his delighted followers.

The handsome star mentioned that he’d “quit the gym” after his hurting his back as he added a second snap of himself before getting fit, in a clinical setting wearing a face mask and navy blue boxers.

Mike captioned: “36 today. And what a year it was. From hurting back, back in November the day before I was supposed to move house and 2 days before I was set to fly to Morocco for a job.

“You can see in the 2nd pic that I was in pretty bad shape. My hips were all off line. Sciatic nerve was trapped and I damaged my C2&C3. I thought it was gonna hurt forever.”

He continued: “I quit the gym and now have just been working out with dumbbells at home and I feel better and stronger than ever. Good diet. Fasting. Cold showers and just everything in moderation.

“Thank you to everyone who has helped me this year. I love my life and I love everyone in it," he added.

Since leaving Emmerdale four years ago, Mike has kept a relatively low profile, though he decided to open up to fans with this recent birthday post.

Many took to the comment section to the praise the star after his transformation reveal, as one person wrote: “Happy Birthday and well done for getting back in shape, have an amazing day celebrating your birthday.”

A second said: “Happy Birthday Mike. I went through the same with my L5 a few years ago, crazy what you can do when you put your mind to it x.”

Another impressed fan commented: “What a body! You look amazing”, adding fire emojis at the end, while someone else said: “Happy birthday lovely x glad you're on the up! X.”

Mike’s body transformation comes after he shared another drastic new look back in May as he debuted his moustache on social media.

The facial hair caused fans to make comparisons to US actor Tom Selleck, as the star was left barley recognisable.
