Adam is engaged to Caroline Daly
Adam, who is the father of two-year-old Teddy with his fiancee Caroline Daly, recently announced that he is quitting the ITV1 soap after eight years. There had been a great deal of speculation about Adam's future on the show following his successful appearance on I'm A Celebrity in 2016.
In a statement released on Emmerdale's website, Adam said: "I've had an amazing eight years working on Emmerdale and I've loved every minute of it. "It was a really tough decision to take to leave, but I felt that now is the time to move on and challenge myself with some new roles. I'd like to thank everyone at Emmerdale for both giving me the opportunity to work as part of such a great team and for giving my character Adam Barton some great storylines too."
