EMMERDALE star Max Parker had a wild Halloween night out over the weekend with topless dancing and swinging around a pole.
The actor – who plays Luke Posner in the ITV soap – was living his best life with a bunch of pals as they visited a club in Manchester.
Max showed off his muscled body as he stripped off for a topless dance before taking his chances on one of the poles on the dancefloor.
And while Max has been showing off more of himself on social media, fans will see a lot more of him in Emmerdale as The Sun Online exclusively revealed yesterday.
The actor will return to the soap despite Luke seemingly leaving the village after tracking down Victoria Sugden.
He made a shock return when he visited Victoria to try to reassure her that he was nothing like his brother and that he believed her.
After initially being sent packing by Aaron, Victoria followed Luke to speak to him.
Asking him why he had come back he told her: “It was kind of impulsive.
“Well as impulsive as you can get with half an hour’s walk and two bus rides. I can drive, I’m a fully functioning adult it’s just my car spends more time in the garage than being driven.
“I didn’t come here to harass you. It’s either the most messed up coincidence in history…”
Victoria was raped by Luke’s brother Lee

Victoria interrupted to finish his sentence, saying: “Or it’s the universe trying to tell us something. I’m not sure I believe in destiny.”
Luke replied: “I believe you though, about Lee and what he did.
“He’s gone now and I don’t really know what I’m supposed to feel about him. I just don’t know where it went wrong for him or why he was like that.
“Thanks for giving me the time of day, I’m nothing like him. It’s important you know that. Maybe someday we can throw caution to the wind and see where destiny takes us.”
With that he got on the bus and left the village – but The Sun Online can reveal that it won’t be for good.
A source said: “Max has proved a huge hit with viewers so it was a no brainer to bring Luke back later this year.
“He and Victoria keep being thrown back together no matter how difficult the circumstances and it’s going to lead to some explosive scenes.”
An Emmerdale spokeswoman declined to comment.
