ADAM Thomas is turning delivery driver to keep his popular restaurant afloat during the coronavirus pandemic.

The former Emmerdale hunk runs an eatery near Manchester with his best pal Scott Graham.

And he’s revealed they cannot afford to close the new venture The Spinn due to monster overheads.

So the actor – who played Adam Barton in the soap and was a presenter on I’m a Celeb's spin off Extra Camp last year – is sat to get behind the wheel to deliver orders.

And he offered to open the restaurant – usually closed on Mondays – at the start of the week to help out other firms in need.

The star took to Instagram to update on what he plans to do in this time of uncertainty.

He wrote: “As a team we don't know what to say or do right now…as far as business is concerned we shall remain open until we are told not to do so…because in all honesty we can not afford to close, our overheads are high and we potentially wouldn’t survive what is sure to be a difficult time for everybody in all walks of life.

“That being said, if the worse case scenario does happen we will be offering a take away service to the local community."

He added: “All of our staff from our Chefs to our drivers…I say drivers, it will be myself and my business partner Scott Graham will take the upmost care in handling your deliveries.

“We are of course well equipped in all aspects of food safety however in this heightened time we find ourselves in we will go the extra mile to avoid any unwanted contact by leaving your deliveries in a safe and designated place at your property.

Much love to all of you… stay safe, Adam, Scott and the rest of the team at The Spinn.”

The PM Boris Johnson drastically ramped up Britain's battleplan – shutting down mass gatherings and urging everyone to stop non-essential travel and contact with others.

He said that means all Brits (around 66million people) staying out of public areas such as restaurants, clubs, theatres and cinemas for weeks – and potentially months into the summer.

The over 70s, those who are pregnant, and anyone with underlying health conditions (around 20million Brits) should try not to leave their homes if they can, and avoid crowded spaces immediately.

And those with severe illnesses like cancer (around 1.4million Brits) must start cocooning themselves in their homes and get food delivered in from this weekend.

The Spinn has been open since last year and is run by Adam and his friend Scott, who have been mates for 20 years.

Whilst Adam for being one of Britain's biggest soaps and starring on I'm A Celeb, Scott’s background is one of street food and private catering having traded on the streets and beyond since 2015 with street food company Oh My Glaze.

The duo lived together for three years before they parted ways and got married.

The Spinn is a by-product of a long-lasting friendship and a desire to star their own business together.
