Adam Thomas was rushed to hospital after dropping a weight on his face.

The former "Emmerdale" star spent three hours in A&E after the heavy item landed on him, and joked he doesn't know if it was worse having to be in hospital for so long with his brother Scott Thomas or the pain of the injury.

Sharing a picture of himself from his hospital bed sporting a nasty-looking eye injury, he added the caption: "Not sure that everyone knows yet but today I dropped a weight on my face !! ... and then 3hrs in a&e with this guy @scottyspecial don't know which one was worse haha but am glad he was there by my side x if you too have dropped a weight on your face please get in touch as it's hard to talk to anyone about my experience unless you've actually been through it ... (sic)"

Adam - who played Adam Barton in the ITV soap - also jokingly appealed to others who had incurred a similar injury to make themselves known so people know if they are "an idiot".

He added: "I know your out there and I know your ashamed but it's about time we spoke out and let others know that if your an idiot... gyms are dangerous places (sic)"
