If elected, he is not expected to join the Cornerstone Group.
Adam, who has appeared in gay mag Attitude, shared Coronation Street’s first gay kiss with Todd Grimshaw, played by co-star Bruno Langley. He quit the Street in 1999 for a pop career but it failed. In 2002 he returned briefly for mum Gail’s wedding.
(Adam is not the first ex-Corrie star to stand for the Tories. James Gaddas, who played barman Vinny Sorrell, unsuccessfully contested Stockton South at this year’s election.)
Mrs Fawkes reckons he’ll make a good member.
