At the moment, Tom is only scheduled to appear in Emmerdale for a few weeks.

The actor is well used to the pressures of working on a long-running serial drama, having spent 11 years playing medic Sam Strachan.

The doctor had something of a reputation as a Lothario, stringing various female colleagues along and fathering a child with his boss Connie Beauchamp.

The Derbyshire-born dad-of-two also played Max Tyler in Waterloo Road, and went on to win Strictly Come Dancing in 2008 with professional partner Camilla Dallerup.

He has most recently been performing in the West End musical Crazy For You, opposite Claire Sweeney.
