Adam Thomas would 'love' to sign up for Strictly

The 'Waterloo Road' actor would be well up for donning his dancing shoes and sequins on the BBC Latin and ballroom show later this year, but the star admitted he hasn't put pen to paper on a deal for this year's series.

Responding to speculation he is set to sign up for the programme, he wrote on his Instagram Stories: "As much as I'd love this to be true!! ... Unfortunately it's not haha [crying laughing emoji] (sic)"

The former 'Emmerdale' star's comments come after he was said to already be honing his dance moves ahead of the series later this year.

A source told The Sun newspaper this week: "Adam has got what it takes to win and is already practising his moves. And he’s got a big female fanbase.

"This has been a little while in the making but it’s happening this year."

Adam - the brother of ex-'Coronation Street' actor Ryan Thomas and former 'Love Island' star Scott Thomas - portrayed Adam Barton in ITV soap 'Emmerdale' from 2009 to 2018, after he shot to fame on the BBC school drama 'Waterloo Road', portraying Donte Charles from 2006 to 2009.

Adam has recently signed up to return to the show, and his son Teddy Thomas will play his on-screen son Tommy Charles.

What's more, his real-life niece, Scarlett Thomas - Ryan's daughter with his ex, 'Coronation Street' star Tina O'Brien - will play his on-screen daughter in the show.
