Adam Rickitt

Adam Peter Rickitt, is a British actor, singer and model. Born in Cheshire, England, Adam first came to public notice by starring as the character Nick Tilsley, in the ITV soap opera Coronation Street. He replaced another actor in the role, the character supposedly having been living in Canada for several years.

After leaving Coronation Street, Adam ventured into a brief pop career, releasing his album Good Times in 1999. Adam's first hit single I Breathe Again, reached the number five spot in the UK Top Ten, though Adam enjoyed several number one hits around the world.

After starring successfully as Mark Cohen in the musical Rent, Adam returned to Coronation Street, where he courted controversy through a gay kiss scene.

Adam has modelled several times for the popular UK magazines Attitude and Cosmopolitan. Adam is particularly famous for having an extremely well-defined six-pack. This, combined with his blond hair and good looks, has led to the accusation that he is a himbo, but this ignores the fact that he actually turned down an opportunity to study law at Cambridge University.
