This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield got Emmerdale star Adam Thomas all flustered after he pointed out a possible plot hole in the ongoing 'Who killed Emma Barton?' mystery.

Emmerdale fans saw Adam Thomas's character Adam Barton arrested for Emma's murder, but – in an interview with the soap star – Schofield wondered why the murder suspect didn't show the police the suicide note which he found.

"He thinks Ross has set him on," Thomas said at first.

Holly Willoughby followed up by asking if his character thought that the suicide note was faked, given that he believes it was planted.

"He does think it's a suicide note," the actor replied.

Schofield latched onto this – and argued why Adam Barton wouldn't hand in the suicide note if it could help clear his name.

Thomas laughed, saying: "Why don't you ask the writers, mate? ... I don't know, but basically, he wants to get rid of the letter."

It is worth pointing out that the police do indeed have evidence Emma's death was a murder, due to the way she fell and the injuries she sustained.

Schofield and Willoughby also tried to play detective, speculating that Adam Barton could be the murderer because Thomas is leaving the soap early next year. And the soap star didn't quell the speculation.

"If you put two and two together – I am leaving, I am a murder suspect – it doesn't take a genius," he teased.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
