Adam Thomas has quit his role in Emmerdale after eight years of starring in the soap.
The actor previously starred in Waterloo Road and was most recently a finalist in last year’s series of I’m A Celebrity.
Having wanted to present his own show for years, Adam is said to be leaving the soap in the hope of pursuing his dream.
It is thought that Adam Barton will be written out of Emmerdale later this year.
Emmerdale continues on ITV1.
