It was heavily rumoured that Adam Thomas had quit Emmerdale.

However the 28-year-old actor has since laughed off the news that he was planning to step down from playing Adam Barton to launch a presenting career.

Posting on Twitter he said: “Don’t believe everything you read people (sic)”

He then followed it up with another post, which was accompanied by the crying with laughter emoji and said: “In other news who wants to be a guest on my new show (sic)”

Adam joined the Dales in 2009 and has had several dramatic storylines since.

Last year Adam came third on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, losing out to Joel Dommett and Scarlett Moffat.
