'Emmerdale' star Adam Thomas has revealed he wants his own chat show and flats rumours he is leaving the soap for a panto gig
Adam Thomas wants to host his own TV show.
The 'Emmerdale' hunk - who is known for portraying farm boy Adam Barton - has admitted he's been toying with the idea of fronting his own series after he was approached by television executives following his successful stint in the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' jungle in Australia late last year.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the 28-year-old star joked: "Yeah, I've got my own show apparently. I got a few offers after the jungle but obviously I work for ITV and my contract's here so work here comes first ... If there's a show out there for me then I'd happily be the host of it. I'm up for anything."
It was initially thought Adam was toying with the idea of quitting the long-running soap in order to explore pantomime but he's adamant he's got no plans to walk away.
He said: "I'm happy at 'Emmerdale' and I'm staying there. Life is good here so I don't want to move on just yet. Acting is my passion and my main thing. Obviously if something comes up then it comes up but I'll see what happens. But right now I want to stay here and I want to keep acting. I just wanted to get back to work really and concentrate on that."
However, it's not known whether Adam will take a short break from the show so that he can still spread his wings and take the stage job that's been thrown his way.
A source said recently: "It's a great payday for him and he's a popular character on 'Emmerdale', so the bosses had to let him make his decision in the hope he may come back in the future."
