We can see a mile off that any deal with Damon Hay (Ciaran Griffiths) is going to end in tears, but that isn’t stopping Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) in Coronation Street.
Reckoning he has got it all under control, Adam agrees to take the criminal on as a client, despite him recently being connected to the shooting at the bistro.
He knows it isn’t going to go down well with anyone, which is quickly proven by Dee-Dee Bailey’s (Channique Sterling-Brown) reaction.
Aghast at the mere suggestion, she tries to talk Adam out of it, but he insists that it could be lucrative for them – and he will deal with the local backlash.
Of course, Damon has a habit of getting what he wants, and crawling under the skin of anyone he gets involved with.
So, is Adam biting off more than he can chew? If the relationship with Damon goes wrong – and it’s bound to – how much could he stand to lose both personally and professionally?
Warning of just what the character is capable of, Corrie’s boss Iain MacLeod told us: ‘He’s dangerous. At first he might seem more sophisticated than his brother Harvey, less of a blunt instrument, but what we discover in the not too distant future is that more polished, jovial veneer masks something every bit as dangerous and brutal as Harvey.
‘He up ends a lot of peoples lives and brings criminality into a family that could probably do from moving on from their past. Then wham! Right back in the mess again thanks to him.’
And Iain also hinted at a romance with a high profile character in the show that would cause waves.
In order to hurt Adam, he wouldn’t – would he?
Putting nothing past him!
