Emmerdale's Adam Thomas to join Corrie sibling Ryan for Big Event

EMMERDALE ACTOR Adam Thomas has followed his older brother’s example by signing up to take part in the Britannia Stadium Big Event on 2nd June, sponsored by Listers and Q-Railing.

Thomas, who plays Adam Barton in the ITV soap, will line-up for the LivSmarter Allstars in a game against a Stoke City Legends XI alongside big brother Ryan, who plays Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street.

Two other ‘Corrie’ stars – Alan Halsall and Chris Fountain – and Hollyoaks’ Jamie Lomas and Ashley Taylor Dawson will also put their wits against the City Legends.

Ian Clarkson has become the latest ex-Potters player to join Mark Stein, Steve Simonsen and Dave Regis in the Legends squad that will be managed by Denis Smith for the big game that’s just part of a fun-packed family day that also features a performance by JLS.

The world’s biggest boy band will treat those attending the Big Event to a selection of their greatest hits, having had five UK number ones since they emerged as runners-up on the television reality show The X-Factor.

After five years of phenomenal success, JLS recently announced they will be splitting up at the end of this year, creating a clamour for opportunities to see them perform before going their separate ways.
