Why is Max Parker leaving Emmerdale and who is he dating?

It was announced yesterday (June 14) that Emmerdale star Max Parker has quit the soap.

Max has been playing Luke Posner in the ITV serial drama for two years.

Luke is currently involved in a huge storyline involving Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) and Lee Posner’s death and his final scenes are set to air soon.

Why is Max leaving Emmerdale?

It would appear Max is simply looking for new adventures as a source told The Sun: ‘Max was never going to stay on the soap for years. He’s an ambitious and talented guy, he’s already auditioning for new roles and excited for the future.’

‘But never say never – there’s always a chance he could return one day.’

What else has Max Parker been in?

Before Max’s role in Emmerdale, he appeared as Base in BBC One’s Casualty. Base became friends with Paramedic Iain Dean (Michael Stevenson) after his partner Mia ended her own life.

In 2019, Max appeared as Danny in the BBC One series World on Fire.

He also featured in the 2020 film ‘Love Sarah’ as Alex and appeared in the Sky One drama Cobra as John Cripps.

Who is Max dating?

Max is dating fellow Emmerdale star Kris Mochrie, who played Luke’s brother and rapist Lee.


Max and Kris confirmed their romance back in September 2020 while on holiday together and in May of this year, the couple began volunteering at a Covid vaccine clinic.

Max shared a photo of the two of them together on his Instagram story in their PPE, praising the NHS.
