Emmerdale actress Rebecca Sarker first appeared in the ITV soap as GP Manpreet Sharma back in 2018.

The 46-year-old star made her acting debut in rival soap Coronation Street in 1999 and she's since gone on to appear in some of the biggest shows in television.

From her sizzling bikini snaps to a long career in soapland, there's a lot about Rebecca's life away from Emmerdale that you probably don't know.

Over the past three years, Manpreet has tied the knot to Rishi in Las Vegas and found herself reunited with her estranged younger sister Meena.

Daily Star has taken a sneak peek into the life of Rebecca as Manpreet finds herself in danger at the hands of her sister.

Rival soap role

Long before playing Manpreet in Emmerdale, Rebecca starred in another soap.

She made her acting debut in the ITV soap opera Coronation Street in 1999.

Portraying the role of Nita Desai, her character was the daughter of short term corner shop owner Ravi Desai.

Her character managed the shop for her dad after he bought it from Fred Elliott.

After four months of managing the corner shop, Nita left the family business and started a job at Freshco.

She later left Weatherfield to move to Inverness to run her own store.

Rebecca left the soap in 2000.

After exiting Coronation Street, Rebecca stayed within the realms of soap land.

Shortly after leaving Corrie, she appeared on the BBC soap opera Doctors.

She then appeared in the BBC medical dramas Holby City and Casualty.

Not hanging up her doctor's hat just yet, she then went on to portray Dr Newton in two episodes of the EastEnders.

Hollywood fame

Rebecca hasn't only stayed within the realms of soap land though, she's also had a glowing Hollywood career.

Starring in the feature film John Carder, Rebecca made a name for herself across the pond.

John Carter of Mars is a 2012 American science fiction Disney movie.

The movie was quite popular when it hit the big screen, and went on to make $284.1 million at box office.

In the film Rebecca played the role of a navigator.

Sizzling bikini snaps

Back in August earlier on in the year, the 46-year-old was seen in an array of bikinis on Instagram.

Enjoying a break away from the Dales with her son, Rebecca left her fans gobsmacked when she showed off her sizzling figure on social media.

Fans were quick to comment on Rebecca's bikini snaps.

On one snap, Rebecca could be seen stepping into the pool wearing a tiny gold and cream bikini.

She wore large shades and her hair tousled, framing her face.

One said: "Looking fabulous!"

Another said: "Wow. You're a gorgeous girl Rebecca."

While a third said: "How beautiful you look hope you are enjoying your holiday."
