On Saturday night, Adam Thomas will be taking to the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom to perform a Jive for movie week. The Emmerdale actor will be hoping to impress viewers at home enough to make it through to week four, particularly after facing some criticism from the four judges last week.

But, despite Adam feeling emotional after a tough week last week, he has endless support from his fans and his family, particularly his wife Caroline Daly and their gorgeous children.

WATCH: Strictly Come Dancing made this format change - did you notice?

Ahead of Adam's turn on the Strictly dancefloor this weekend, find out more about his family here…

Who is Adam Thomas' wife Caroline Daly?

Adam is married to his wife Caroline Thomas, nee Daly. The pair met in 2007 when Adam was just 19-years-old. After several years of dating, they got hitched in 2017 and recently celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary.

Caroline runs her own dance school and has worked as a professional dancer in the past. Meanwhile, Adam spoke to HELLO! and other press at the Strictly launch about whether his wife had given him any dance tips ahead of his stint on the BBC Ballroom and Latin competition. "None whatsoever," he told reporters, adding: "I wish she had but no, not yet."

Adam also spoke to his fans on social media about whether Caroline would give him pointers: "I said this to my wife the other day, the fact that my wife is a dance teacher, and I have never learnt how to dance just baffles me, but then she said to me that I haven't taught her how to act either.

"I have had no dance experience, so this is definitely a first for me but again, I am excited to learn and get out there and do my thing."

Do Adam and Caroline have children?

Adam and Caroline are parents to two children. They welcomed their firstborn, Teddy, in 2012 and his nine-year-old has even recently landed a role on BBC's Waterloo Road alongside his actor dad! The pair then welcomed their daughter Elsie in the summer of 2018.

Adam recently shared an adorable photo of his family on Instagram. He dedicated his message to his wife for "holding down the fort" while he took part in some gruelling and lengthy training sessions for Strictly.
