Emmerdale's Bradley Johnson has been flooded with messages of support as he shared a special family announcement.

The soap star is renowned for his role as Vinny Dingle in the long-running ITV show. It has been a busy period for Vinny in the fictional Yorkshire village since his partner, Liv, died in 2022.

A recent storyline in the show has centred on his struggles to move on from the tragic loss. Away from the screen, Bradley's family life is fortunately much less turbulent as he is in a happy relationship with Sammie Johnstone.
