Emmerdale hunk Max Parker, who plays Luke Posner, has confirmed his relationship with on-screen brother Kris Mochrie and shared his coming out story in his own words.
Max, 28, said speculation about his relationship with 31-year-old Kris, who plays Lee Posner, after they went public on social media meant he came out to his grandparents before he felt he was ready, as he wanted to be the first to tell them.
But, he told Attitude, they told him they accepted him and were happy he is happy, much to his relief.
Max recalled feeling “shame” as a child realising he was gay in 1990s Manchester where it was cool to like “girls and football” and his dad grilled him on images he found on the computer that Max had been looking at.
“It was later I thought ‘I’ve never done Tinder so I’ll have a go’, so I went on Tinder and I saw him pop up, and I was like ‘OK this is a sign’ – so I made the first move by sending a message on Instagram,” he said.
The rest was history, and the genetically-blessed couple have moved in together and Max says he is excited for what the future holds.
