Adam Gordon Thomas (born 11 August 1988) is an English actor, known for his roles as Donte Charles in the BBC drama Waterloo Road (2006–2009) and Adam Barton in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale (2009–2018).
Adam Gordon Thomas was born on 11 August 1988 in Salford, Greater Manchester, England. He is the twin brother of Scott Thomas, who appeared in Love Island in 2016 and the younger brother of Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas.
Thomas began his television career in 2002 with a guest appearance on the BBC daytime soap opera Doctors. It was another four years before Adam launched to fame in his breakthrough role as Donte Charles in the BBC drama series Waterloo Road of which he was an original cast member upon its inception in 2006 until 2009.
The role of Donte led Thomas to enjoy guest appearances in popular hospital drama Casualty in 2008 in which he played a boxer, as well as a second appearance in Doctors in 2007. He also appeared as himself on ITV gameshow All Star Family Fortunes alongside his older brother and fellow actor Ryan, who played Jason Grimshaw in the soap opera, Coronation Street.
In early 2009, it was confirmed that Thomas was to leave Waterloo Road at the end of the fourth series due to his character having finished his education at the fictional school.
Following his departure from his most famous role, Thomas signed on for his third appearance on daytime soap Doctors, this time playing a character called Ben Hamilton. The episode aired on 26 May 2009.
It was announced on 21 May 2009 that Thomas had landed the role of Adam Barton in the long-running ITV soap opera Emmerdale and would appear on screens from July 2009. Thomas confirmed he will leave Emmerdale in early 2018 after months of reports.
In November and December 2016, Thomas was a contestant on the sixteenth series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! and finished in third place. He became a property executive for the Kamani Property Group in 2018 alongside former Emmerdale co-star Marc Silcock. In February 2019, he portrayed the role of Rob in an episode of the BBC drama Moving On. On 19 October 2019, it was announced that Thomas would be co-hosting I'm a Celebrity: Extra Camp.
In 2014, Thomas and his long-term girlfriend, Caroline Daly, welcomed their first child, a son, Teddy. On 27 August 2017, Adam and Caroline married in Delamere Manor, Cheshire.
