Emmerdale's Michael Parr: I have the 'perfect job'

Michael Parr thinks he has the "perfect job".

The 'Emmerdale' actor has insisted he has no plans to reform his bad boy character Ross Barton any time soon as he has too much fun exploring his dark side.

Asked if Ross could come back a changed man at the Inside Soap Awards, Michael said: "Would there be any fun in that? I don't know. I hope not, because I like driving the cars and chasing the girls. I've got the perfect job at the moment, so I don't want it to change."

A petition was started by 'Emmerdale' fans to bring Michael back earlier this year after they were led to believe his character had been killed off.

And although the 29-year-old hunk is now one of British soaps' hottest stars - taking home the Best Actor, Best Bad Boy, Sexiest Male and Best Affair accolades at the annual awards ceremony - he claims he doesn't use it to his advantage.

He confessed: "I've never done anything like that. A couple of my pals have tried to. I went to watch Annie Mac and we didn't have tickets but we thought maybe we'll be able to pay on the door and then one of my friends, who's as camp as Christmas, said, 'He's on 'Emmerdale', we're coming in, I'm his make-up artist!' and they fell for it, we all just walked in. I was like, 'I can't believe this'."
