Adam Thomas


Adam made his TV debut in 2002, aged 15, with a guest appearance in Doctors but he rose to fame for his performance as Donte Charles in Waterloo Road when it first aired in 2006.

He also had guest appearances in Casualty in 2008 in which he played a boxer as well as a second appearance in Doctors in 2007.

Adam made his final appearance in Waterloo Road in May 2009 before arriving in the Dales in July 2009.

He often gets mistaken for older brother Ryan who played Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street. Adam also has a twin brother, Scott, although they are not identical.

In 2016, Adam entered ITV’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. Despite finishing third, Adam’s reaction to be voted to do the most Bush Tucker Trials won him a legion of fans, the most stars in the history of the show and the undisputed title of Mr Bush Tucker Trial.

Adam is engaged to Caroline Davy, and they have a son Teddy. Adam and Caroline are due to get married in 2017.
