Emmerdale spoilers: Adam Barton recast 24 hours after exit in shock snub

EMMERDALE'S Adam Thomas has already been replaced by soap bosses.


Emmerdale cast Adam made his exit from the soap in last night's episode when his former step-dad Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) broke him out of his prison van.

He had been on the show for eight years, but decided to bow out to focus on other career opportunities, and the birth of his second child with wife Caroline Daly.

Poor Adam was replaced by his own twin Scott Thomas in a parody clip of the soap.

BROKEN OUT: Adam managed to leg it from the prison van

Scott appeared on Love Island 2016, and so far hasn't followed his brothers Adam, and Ryan of Corrie fame, into soap acting.

Luckily it all appeared to be a joke, so Adam shouldn't be losing sleep anytime soon.

He announced his departure from the soap back in June, much to the devastation of his fans.

The 29-year-old said of his exit: "I've been on the show for eight years and I've made some great friends there so it was very emotional.

"We had a bit of a wrap party and all the cast made a leaving video for me, which made me cry like a baby."

Meanwhile, Adam's friends and family were left reeling as Adam went on the run.
