Adam Thomas WILL perform on Strictly Come Dancing’s Halloween special after bosses feared illness would keep him at home
Adam Thomas will perform on Strictly Come Dancing’s Halloween special on Saturday, it has been confirmed.
The Emmerdale actor’s performance on this week’s show was hanging in the balance with bosses making last minute ‘contingency arrangements’ in case he couldn’t do it.
A Strictly spokesperson has now confirmed Adam will perform, telling The Sun: ‘Adam is feeling much better and will be performing tonight.’
It comes after Adam confirmed his intentions to be back on the Strictly dancefloor tonight after bowing out of spin-off It Takes Two due to medical reasons.
But Adam now appears to be planning on taking to the dancefloor as his wife Caroline and children have travelled down from Manchester to the Strictly studios.

The soap star reposted a snap of Caroline and their children Teddy, ten, and Elsie, five, which his wife captioned: ‘SCD week 6 rehearsals here we come’.
The contestants perform their final rehearsals on Saturday in the hours before taking to the dancefloor for the show.
Caroline made sure the kids were appropriately dressed for Halloween week as she painted cobwebs around her daughter’s eyes with some mascara.
It comes after Strictly spokesperson told MailOnline ‘the health and well-being of the cast’ is an ‘absolute priority’ as plans were being put in place should Adam be too ill to perform in the Halloween special.
Adam was expected to appear alongside his dance partner Luba Mushtuk on It Takes Two on Friday.
However, the pro dancer arrived solo and explained Adam was absent due to medical reasons.
Host Fleur East told viewers: ‘Unfortunately, Adam is feeling a bit under the weather, but please mention the lovely Luba Mushtuk.’
Luba then proceeded to tell the shocked viewers ‘it is so strange to be here by myself’.
‘He is resting now. He just didn’t feel very well but he is resting and getting ready for tomorrow night.’
Adam will take to the stage again this weekend and will be set to perform a horror-themed routine for Halloween.
The no-show comes after Adam took to Instagram earlier this week to admit that he is finding it ‘tough’ to leave his happy family behind when he leaves in the early hours of the morning for training.
He captioned a sweet snap of his wife and daughter with: ‘Leaving these two peas in a pod/bed was tough! Like mother like daughter. Although she may look like her mother, she’s a lot more like me ahhaha don’t know if that’s a good thing or bad thing haha bless her x’
Last week Adam broke his silence after his emotional Strictly dance on Saturday – after a week of ‘setbacks’ including being banned from rehearsals amid fears of a flu outbreak.
The actor scored 32 on Saturday night’s show, earning a nine for the first time for his Couple’s Choice to Backstreet Boys Medley with pro partner Luba.
