born, Adam Rickitt, the son of Manchester financier and
City fan, Peter Rickitt, first found fame by playing Nick
Tilsley in Coronation Street.
He settled well into the role and received massive publicity (probably
more for his good looks rather than his fine acting).
Backed by his manager,
Nigel Martin-Smith, the mastermind behind Take
That!, Adam decided to quit "Corrie"
to become a pop star. It was in June 1999, that Adam made the
break from acting and released his debut single, "I
Breathe Again", which went Top 5 in the UK charts.
His boyish good-looks
often incorrectly earn him the 'gay' label, although he doesn't
mind and has no intentions of making a big issue proving that
he is not.
October '99 saw Adam's
second hit single, "Everything
My Heart Desires", also reached the Top 20, whilst his
debut album, the appropiately titled, "Good
Times", also received maximum publicity.
February 2000 saw the
Thing", slip into the UK charts at Number 25 before
quietly disappearing out of the Top 40 a week later.
