It’s his first major TV role since bowing out of Emmerdale earlier this year.

Pitching In stars Gavin and Stacey favourites Larry Lamb (Michael Shipman) and Melanie Walters (Gwen West) and is scheduled to air on BBC One Daytime and BBC One Wales in spring 2019.

The storyline revolves around three generations of the same family who are “all struggling to make the best of a very unusual – and sometimes very difficult – situation.”

It’s set in a caravan park on the north Wales coast.

Larry said recently: “Eleven years after Gavin and Stacey burst onto the scene I’m heading out west again, switching Barry Island for Anglesey this time! I’m delighted to be playing the role of Frank in Pitching In – it’s a touching, funny and romantic story and a fascinating glimpse of life on the north Wales coast.”

Adam’s involvement in Pitching In was revealed in September, but the exact details of his storyline and role has been kept under wraps.

As well as starring in Emmerdale, Adam appeared in Waterloo Road as Donte Charles.

He also took part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016.

Adam’s had a busy time lately: alongside filming Pitching In, he’s been working as a property executive for a luxury property firm in Manchester run by his close friend Adam Kamani.
