The plot thickens... 

The rumour mill was then sent into overdrive when current Emmerdale star Bhasker Patel, who plays Rishi Sharma, replied to Adam's post.

Bhasker said: "Coming (to the) Dales by any chance?

"That laughter is well missed in Yorkshire! Oh and your hugs! Out of this world!"

But it seems that fans won't be seeing another Barton in the village any time soon.

Adam simply replied to Bhasker with, "Aww mate, I would love to see your face again".
