Joe Gill doesn't have any plans to appear on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' because he wouldn't be able to follow his former 'Emmerdale' co-star Adam Thomas' entertaining appearance on the programme
Joe Gill would turn down 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' because he's not as "entertaining" as Adam Thomas.
The 23-year-old actor departed 'Emmerdale' this week after four years on the soap, but viewers are unlikely to see him on the reality TV show anytime soon because his former co-star - who finished third on the show last year - is a "tough act to follow".
Speaking to the Sun Online, he said: "I can't see myself doing that, and Adam's a very hard act to follow.
"Entertainment-wise, I don't think you could get much better than that really, so I think whoever goes in after him has got a tough act to follow."
Joe bowed out of 'Emmerdale' in dramatic scenes on Thursday night (05.10.17) when his character Finn Barton was shot by his mother Emma Barton (Gillian Kearney).
Following the emotional scenes, Joe thanked his fans and the cast and crew of the soap for their support over the years.
In a note he posted on Twitter, he wrote: "Earlier this year I made the very tough decision to leave the show in order to pursue other challenges.
"The 4 years I have spent in Emmerdale have been the best of my life and I couldn't have asked for better people to be around.
"Thank you so much to the production team, the crew, the cast and of course my on screen family.
"It is something I will always look at with great pride when I think of the show and the character I played.
"And thank you to the viewers for your constant support, it has meant so much. Keep watching this week!
"Cheers, Joe x (sic)"
