Joe, who was a favourite to win, was forced to quit the skating show early after both he and partner Vanessa Bauer tested positive for Covid.

Shortly after appearing on the show he made the decision to quit social media but returned today showing off a brand new look.

A source said: "Joe is really looking forward to getting back to work on the soap.

"He's had an amazing time trying something new but can't wait to get back to acting.


"He was bitterly disappointed with the way his time on Dancing On Ice ended so decided to take a break from social media to clear his head.

"Joe has taken nearly a month off being online and has just really concentrated on himself.

"It's the first time he's had a chance to really process his split from girlfriend Nicole, which happened while he was on the show.


"But he's back now and feeling and looking great with his new look."

Joe's character Jacob was last seen heading to his mum's house in Portugal after a tough two years in the village, which saw him being groomed by his teacher.

It is thought he will decide to come back to the village now after his break – and with a brand new hair style.

Off screen Joe's relationship with Nicole hit the skids in November as he started skating training.

He had dated the 24-year-old for three years but moved out of the home they shared and back in with his mum in Blackpool.

Emmerdale confirmed to The Sun Online that Joe is back on the soap this month.
