Celebrities who’ve quit fame for ‘normal’ jobs after Jason Manford starts work at Iceland – The Sun

SHOWBIZ life can be exhausting, so it’s no wonder these down-to-earth stars have stepped away from fame to do everyday jobs.

Although it’s unlikely Justin Bieber will deliver your next ASOS parcel, you might be surprised at these celebrity job-switchers.

Jason Manford, EastEnders' Katie Jarvis and Towie's Kirk Norcross have swapped their famous day time jobs for something a little more low key.

The much-loved comedian has ditched the microphone to deliver food for one the UK's most well-known supermarkets.

Whereas Kirk has set up his own business to get some money in the bank.

Here's our round-up of celebs who have ditched their fame for a more 'normal' job…

Jason Manford

Iceland customers got a surprise when Jason Manford turned up to deliver their shopping.

The comedian was spotted smiling as he dished out boxes of food after the supermarket chain offered to make a donation to the NHS if he did a shift.

EastEnders' Katie Jarvis

Best known for playing Kat Slater’s cousin Hayley in EastEnders, Katie Jarvis turned her hand to a new job when she took a break from acting and did a stint on the door at her local B&M.

JLS' JB Gill

When JB Gill took a break from screaming fans and slick dance routines, he craved the quiet life.

Now the JLS star is big in the farming game, specialising in prestigious KellyBronze turkeys.

Towie's Kirk Norcross

Downing cocktails at the Sugar Hut and being on camera 24/7 became too much for Towie star Kirk Norcross and now he favours a more peaceful life.

He’s the boss of KN Jet Services, unblocking drains and leaving your drive spotless with his power washer.

Corrie's Ruxandra Porojnicu

Don’t be surprised if Coronation Street’s Alina Pop takes hands you a menu – hard-working star Ruxandra Porojnicu revealed she worked in a café last summer alongside filming.

Westlife's Mark Feehily

Westlife’s Mark Feehily turned his back on ballads and singing while sat on a stool to run his own catering company.

His pop-up crepe van was a favourite for festival-goers, but won’t be parked outside when Westlife tour.

EastEnders' Tom Watt

Tom Watt found fame as lovable geek Lofty on EastEnders, but now indulges his passion for sport as a successful football writer and podcaster.

He still found time to make a surprise appearance in the soap when Lofty turned up to Dr Legg’s funeral last year.

Emmerdale's Adam Thomas

When Adam Barton left Emmerdale, actor Adam Thomas decided to give Phil and Kirstie a run for their money by going into property.

He worked part time as an estate agent in Manchester, but was recently back on telly with his brothers for Absolutely India: Mancs in Mumbai.

Kevin Jonas

While Nick and Joe went on to have solo careers when the Jonas Brothers split, the older Jo Bro shunned the limelight.

Kevin started up his own house building company, but was persuaded to step away from the side return for the band’s big reunion last year.

Freddie Prinze

You couldn’t watch a teen movie in the ’90s without seeing Freddie Prinze Jr’s cheeky face and he went on to marry Buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Now the actor is a chef who’s released his own cookbook, Back to the Kitchen.
