Gay Icon Adam to be Tory MP

The Sun says Coronation Street star Adam Rickitt is on his way to becoming a Tory MP. The actor was spotted at the Tory conference in Blackpool and CCO confirms he is on the candidates’ list. Gay pin-up Adam, 27, is a Tory wannabee who wants to fight for a Commons seat at the next General Election.

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.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
