Adam Rickitt - I Breathe Again

Adam Rickitt is an English actor, former singer and model.

Rickitt left Coronation Street in 1999 to start a music career. He signed a six-album deal, although he only released one album - Good Times - in 2000. Rickitt's first single, I Breathe Again, reached number five in the UK Top Ten, but follow up singles Everything My Heart Desires (also recorded by Mandy Moore), and Best Thing only entered the Top Twenty and Top Thirty respectively. The album failed, despite sexy music videos which showed off his muscular body (it peaked at No. 41 in the chart). Rickitt's disillusionment with the direction of his career led him to abandon pop music. However in 2003, he played Mark Cohen in the musical Rent.

Rickitt actively courted gay audiences during this period, appearing regularly at gay venues and the BBC series Gaytime TV as well as children's television and mainstream pop festivals and television series.
