ITV Emmerdale Vinny Dingle star Bradley Johnson’s life – stunning fiancée to hidden talent

Emmerdale ‘s Vinny Dingle, played by actor Bradley Johnson, has had a rollercoaster ride as tensions escalated between him and Tom King on the soap.

With Tom feeling increasingly jealous of his wife Belle’s connections with others, Vinny became the target of his fury on Thursday’s show, 18 April, and now fans are fearing him dead.

However, off screen Bradley leads a life far removed from the Dales drama . Beyond the cameras, the 26-year-old actor boasts a hidden talent that’s as impressive as his on-screen presence.

Before gracing the screens of Emmerdale, Bradley made waves in the entertainment industry with appearances in popular shows like Shameless, Five Days, and Harriet’s Army.

However, it was his performance on BBC’s Let It Shine in 2017 that catapulted him to fame. Bradley’s rendition of Bring Him Home from Les Misérables went viral, showcasing his remarkable singing prowess and earning him a coveted spot in the show’s final.

He’s previously showed off his incredible singing voice on Emmerdale’s YouTube channel, The Woolpack Session, and soap fans were seriously impressed.

Bradley also regularly shares acoustic covers on his Instagram page, where he belts out tracks by the likes of Coldplay, Tina Turner, Billy Joel and many more.

When he’s not showcasing his musical talents, Bradley enjoys spending quality time with loved ones, including his adorable malti-shi pup, Barney.

While Bradley’s on-screen chemistry with his former co-star Isobel Steele, who portrayed Liv Dingle, sparked rumours, Isobel was quick to clarify that their relationship was purely platonic.

She explained to The Mirror: “Brad is wonderful and such a good friend of mine. We are very similar and work really well together when we have scenes just us two.

“I can see why people jumped to conclusions, seeing two characters spending time together on and off-screen! For the record, me and Brad are not in a relationship. We are just very good friends who enjoy each other’s company out of work as well as in work.”
