Adam Thomas has candidly opened up about being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis ahead of his Strictly Come Dancing stint.

The ex-Emmerdale actor, 35, is set to take to the dance floor on this year's series of the BBC One show alongside the likes of Bobby Brazier, Angela Scanlon, Ellie Leach and Les Dennis.

Dad-of-two Adam's hectic schedule with dance training and filming the new series of Waterloo Road has proven difficult to manage, along with his rheumatoid arthritis, which he was diagnosed with earlier this year.

He began experiencing shooting pains in his knees, before travelling to his wrists, fingers, ankles and toes, but it wasn't until he'd undergone several blood tests and taken numerous trips to the hospital he found out what was wrong. “I’ve not talked about this before but no-one really knows the pain I’ve been going through,” he told the Mirror. “I put on a brave face but it’s been difficult to keep that persona up.
