If you remember back in 1999, after leaving Coronation Street for the first time, Adam embarked on a pop career and his debut single was the dance track "I Breathe Again."
Rickitt certainly wanted to shake the cobbles f his pop image by going for total nudity in the accompanying music video.
Not just Corrie fans took notice as the single got ito number five on the singles charts, upon release, and remained in the top ten for several weeks.
Sadly, the follow-up singles - "Everything My Heart Desires" and "Best Thing" - only reached no/ 15 and no.25, respectively, and his debut album, Good Times, peaked at number 41, dropping out the charts after just one week.
Adam had signed a six-album deal with Polydor but he was dropped soon after.
He had tried to comeback in 2010, but his single "Tonight," failed to chart. Four years later, he was back performing as part the supergroup 5th Story - Adam, Kenzie from Blazin' Squad, Dane Bowers from Another Level, Kavana and Gareth Gates - during second series The Big Reunion.
Now he's back in the world soaps after landing a role in Hollyoaks.
The star, who is best known for his role as Nick Tilsley in Coronation Street from 1997-2004, will make his debut as Nancy Osbourne's ex boyfriend Kyle in the show.
Adam's appearance will coincide with Nancy's MS storyline when Kyle, who is also living with MS, bumps into his former flame at a support meeting.
