Emmerdale’s Adam Thomas reveals truth about exit rumours

Is he leaving to do panto?

Emmerdale’s Adam Thomas has long been the subject of exit rumours and he has set the record state – so is he staying or is he going?

Ever since his stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! last year, speculation has been rife that he’d leave the show to pursue other opportunities.

Earlier this year it was reported that the Adam Barton actor was leaving to host his own show, but at the time he posted to Twitter: “Don’t believe everything you read”.

That suggested he was sticking around, although The Sun writer Andy Halls insisted Adam was the one lying and he’d be gone by the end of 2017.

Now it’s been reported Adam’s off to do panto, after ITV bosses made him choose between Emmerdale and the £100,000 offer to go on stage.

But now he’s spoken out officially dismissing the talk as nonsense.

Talking to Digital Spy, he revealed: “There is no truth behind it. I’m happy here, I’m staying here. Life is good here, so I don’t want to move on just yet.”

But he did admit he would be keen to try his hand at a presenting role in the future:

“Bring it on! I’m happy, if there’s a show out there for me then I’ll happily be the host of it, I’m up for anything!

“But no, acting is my passion and my main thing. Right now I want to stay here and keep acting.”

At the moment Adam is at the centre of the action on screen, having just kissed Vanessa Woodfield behind wife Victoria Barton’s back.

The character had just discovered he was infertile and had left Vic as he didn’t want to stop her dream of having kids.

The pair have since got back together, but the kiss secret is a ticking time bomb ready to blow at any second.

With the fallout set to be huge, there’s plenty for Adam to get his teeth into if he sticks around.
