Get better soon Adam!

Hanna Fillingham

Former Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas has just returned from a luxury family holiday with his wife and two young children, but his welcome home didn't get off to the best of starts. On Wednesday, he was rushed to A&E by his brother Scott after dropping a weight on his face at the gym. Adam shared a picture of himself from the hospital after the incident, showcasing his painful looking scar just below his eye. He wrote: "Feeling really sorry for myself don't think I'll be able to work for a week. Good job I don't have a job. I only dropped 50kg on my face I don't need a gown, but I'll take one."

Adam was taken to hospital by his twin brother Scott, and shared another picture of the pair of them on Instagram. He wrote: "Not sure that everyone knows yet but today I dropped a weight on my face !! ... and then 3hrs in a&e with this guy @scottyspecial don’t know which one was worse haha but am glad he was there by my side x if you too have dropped a weight on your face please get in touch as it’s hard to talk to anyone about my experience unless you’ve actually been through it ... I know you're out there and I know your ashamed but it's about time we spoke out and let others know that if you're an idiot... gyms are dangerous places."

The actor was met with a mass of sympathetic comments from his family and friends, with brother Ryan Thomas writing: "I love you so much Adam, to be fair something I would do." Scott added: "'Today is going to be a good day.' No it's not John Snow." Adam's former Emmerdale co-star Mike Parr – who played Ross Barton in the soap – wrote: "Heavy news bro!!" while Lisa Snowdon added: "Ouch! Adam! Bloody hell!"
