Coronation Street star lands role in rival soap two decades after leaving the Cobbles


Adam Rickitt, who previously played Nick Tilsley in Coronation Street before Ben Price took over, has since landed a new role in a competing soap opera.

More than 20 years after leaving Weatherfield, former Coronation Street star Adam Rickitt has landed a new role on a competing soap opera.

Adam briefly played Nick Tilsley from 1997 to 2004, but he will be making a comeback on television by assuming a new role in BBC’s Doctors.

Adam was among the best soap actors in the nation, so it was only a matter of time before he landed a new role, an insider told The Sun.

He is very eager to begin filming for Doctors, and his employers are eager to see how the public will respond to him.

Adam has put in a lot of time obtaining his bar, but he is now ready to return to acting.

When the soap star played Leanne Battersby on the television show Corrie, Jane Danson, he stirred up controversy when he married her at the age of 17.

Later, he paid for her to get an abortion, claiming he wasn’t yet ready to start a family.

They soon fell out of love, and when Nick later returned to the cobbles several years later, he started dating Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon).

Adam first left the role in 1999 to start a brief music career. He signed a six-album deal with Polydor and released the hit single “Breathe Again.”

Additionally, Todd Grimshaw (played by Bruno Langley), a character on the soap opera, and Adam’s character shared the show’s first-ever gay kiss.

After leaving Corrie, he acted as Kyle Kelly in the New Zealand soap Shortland Street before moving on to Hollyoaks.

2020 saw him leave Hollyoaks after his character committed suicide.

Additionally, Adam temporarily stepped away from the spotlight to work with his wife and Good Morning Britain reporter Katy Fawcett to open a bar in Cheshire called Dexter & Jones.

Dexter and Jones offers “more than 450 different craft beers, 10 draft beers (which change frequently), more than 150 small batch gins, and more than 60 different wines,” according to the bar’s website.

The website offers additional advice, saying: “When it comes to craft beer, we are always on the lookout. From securing one-off lines from the biggest breweries to looking for start-ups making strides in a new direction.

“When it comes to gins, we concentrate on small batch distillers who craft their beverages naturally without the use of artificial flavorings, striving for the ideal botanical blend to tickle your tastebuds.”
