Emmerdale's James Moore shares questions he's asked most about his disability

He has an ultimate comeback for the questions

Soap star James Moore has revealed some of the bizarre queries he has been asked.

The 27-year-old Emmerdale actor told his 20,000 Twitter followers he has faced some enquiries that have left him absolutely incredulous.

Responding to a tweet about what question relating to his disability he hears most regularly, James reeled off three surprising results.

The Ryan Stocks star also added he has a conclusive reply when he faces such daft requests for clarification.

Revealing he is asked about whether he is suffers from cerebral palsy in reality away from the soap's plots, whether he can drive and whether his walking is 'authentic', James received hundreds of 'likes' on his tweet suggesting fans endorsed his exasperation.

He also hinted he found such questions slightly unbelievable.

"Strangely enough these are questions I'm often asked face to face," James added.

But the award-winning performer also divulged he has an incontestable final word which no doubt leaves curious questioners spluttering.

"I just look at my legs and go 💁‍♂️💁‍♂️?" James continued.

James has previously told fans not to feel sorry for him because he has cerebral palsy.

Despite winning over legions of admirers since joining the ITV soap as Charity's secret son in June 2018, a minority of trolls claimed James only won the National Television Award for Best Newcomer in January because he was a 'sympathy vote' candidate.

The dignified star has previously called on TV bosses to do more for disabled performers and has also asked able-bodied travellers to show consideration for disabled transport users during journeys.
