The actor, who made his debut as Adam Barlow in 2004 aged just 18, admitted that fans would actually refer to him by his character’s name in bed.
‘I’d go to nightclubs and there were always loads of dolly birds hanging around looking for fun and I had lots of fun. But girls still called me Adam half the time,’ he said.
He added in a previous interview with the Mirror: ‘It’s weird when the girl shouts out your character’s name in bed. It’s also an easy excuse to kick them out on the street and not have to pay for dinner though!’
Who says romance is dead?
In case you need a quick recap, Adam is currently in the middle of a deal with Harvey Gaskell (Will Mellor) – Damon’s brother. Adam has asked Harvey to ‘get rid’ of Damon, and has agreed to work on an appeal case surrounding Natasha Blakeman’s murder in return.
Last week, Adam told Harvey that if they pin Natasha’s murder on someone else, they could claim the person ‘responsible’ put gunshot residue on Harvey, giving the impression he killed her.
Shortly after, Harvey contacted Adam and said he needed to meet a man called John Perry at Weatherfield General Hospital – who will confess.
In Sunday’s (February 11) episode of the ITV soap, Adam and John headed to the police station with a prepared confession, but were surprised when John wasn’t even remanded in custody.
Adam explained that an investigation will be launched and later, he called Harvey to update him.
In his cell, Harvey was impressed with everything Adam had done so far, and said getting rid of someone – Damon in this case – is something he loves doing.
The plan is moving along nicely but if Harvey’s appeal case is a success, could he return to Weatherfield?
