'Emmerdale' actor Adam Thomas likes older women.
The 27-year-old star has confessed he enjoys being a toy boy and is thrilled his character Adam Barton is set to have a one night stand with cougar Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick) on the ITV soap.
He said: "Well, Adam Barton likes the older woman and Adam Thomas likes the older woman as well so I was quite pleased!"
Adam's character sleeps with Vanessa after his girlfriend Victoria Sugden (Isabel Hodgins) rejects his marriage proposal and he's confessed that although he enjoyed playing out the storyline, Adam will be left feeling guilty about his fling when he and Victoria get back together.
He explained: "Afterwards Adam is in turmoil and he just feels sick inside. He knows that he's got a good girl but he's messed things up again. He wants to keep things sweet with Vanessa, so he tries to tell her not to say anything. She wants to say something, but Adam threatens her a little bit and says that she can't."
However, Adam later changes his mind after getting back together with Victoria and decides to tell her about his night with Vanessa.
According to Digital Spy, Ryan - whose brother Ryan Thomas plays Jason Grimshaw in 'Coronation Street' - added: "Yeah, once Adam gets back with Victoria, he wants to be honest in his relationship so he wants to tell her the truth.
"He can't tell her face-to-face, so he ends up leaving her a voicemail message to tell her! At the time he thinks it's a good idea but then Aaron says, 'What the hell are you doing, you plonker?! It's not the best way to do it'. So Adam needs a way to get out of that mess."
