Trivia (4)

Children are Michael & Greig
He was charged with indecently assaulting two girls at a public swimming pool. Despite being cleared by a jury, he was sacked from Coronation Street (1960) after he sold his story to a national newspaper. Script writers for the show killed him off when he suffered a heart attack at the wheel of his car. His exit from "Coronation Street" led to a collapse in his personal life. A year after the trial his wife died and by 1991 he was bankrupt. He spent last few years of his life living in Welton, Lincolnshire, far from the fame and glamour he once enjoyed.
Following his departure from Coronation Street, he enjoyed a brief run on the London stage in "Dial M for Murder", before retiring from the acting profession.
His wife, Jean, suffered years of chronic ill-health and severe arthritis. Her early death in 1985 reignited Adamson's alcoholism, an addiction he had successfully overcome in his time as a soap actor.
