Nick has fallen in love with Maria, and his grandmother is doing everything to destroy their love.

Why shouldn’t Nick take Maria to Canada?

This young lad is weeping because his Granddad has died, (Classic Coronation Street), but that was after a show of bravery when Sally was being attacked by Greg Kelly, Les Battersby's nasty son, who HAS to be over 6ft, as he's taller than his Dad, played by Bruce Jones, who looks around 5ft11 or just over.

This young fellow took him on, so well done to him!

5ft10. 👏😁

Yes, I can confirm that it was indeed Adam's first appearance as Nick Tilsley. In today's episode, he meets Leanne Battersby, and starts what is to become a life-long romance.

The Battersby family has an atrocious reputation and Nick's Mum is very much against the two getting together. Fortunately, the girls both turn out well! 😄👍

Adam might be an inch shorter than the actor who takes over from him (Ben Price) when he leaves years later, but that barely caught the eye, unlike the enormous difference between the guys who played Peter Beale in EastEnders. Even those who weren't height orientated noticed THAT difference; you couldn't help but gasp at the huge six-and-a-half inches between the chaps, which even made the papers!

Adam has shown up in Classic Coronation Street at Don Branning's funeral. It's cheered his Mum up no end, as indeed it should. 😉

If my memory serves me correctly, this was Adam's debut, and the viewers were all gasping at how much he had grown!
In fact, he was a completely different actor, and a very attractive one at that!

My word, Adam's Nick Tilsley is SUCH a teenage handful! 😲

I hope Adam has made a full recovery from his eating battles.

5ft10 😁👍

Oh, great, Rob! You've brought Adam Rickitt back, and I'm upset to read that he's had a battle with his weight.

I'll check him out when he's on the Classic version of 'Coronation Street'. Until then, Adam gets 5ft10. 😁👍

Are you sure he is 5'11? He looks a lot smaller on his instagram like in this pic:

Do you think his Ankylosing Spondylitis has reduced his height?
Editor Rob
He could be shorter though I don't think he's had height loss too much, maybe some in upper spine, but he looks to have kept rather fit. He called his wife 5ft 1 and doesn't really look 10 inches taller than her though.

It is interesting that he is the same height as Ben Price!

I always thought he was a bit of a fitness freak, but perhaps that's the reason, he tries his very best to fight the condition.
Editor Rob
it will be interesting to see how his condition effects him, whether he can really reduce the effects.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Apr/17
@Rob, you may want to mention he's got Ankylosing Spondylitis like Mick Mars Click Here Poor guy, he could lose 4 inches in the next 10-15 years.
Editor Rob
he says he has had it since 18, so he must be doing better than some through exercise to reduce effects a bit.
