Adam Barlow's biggest blow in life so far was when his mother died at the wheel on 11th February 2001 en route to a ferry from Glasgow to Ireland.
After quitting a boarding school in Glasgow, he returned to Weatherfield in 2005 to get a job at the Underworld factory on Coronation Street. In 2007 after his adoptive aunt Tracy was sent down for murder he left with Peter to open a betting shop in Portsmouth.
Adam later went to move to Canada and in July 2013 Ken traveled over to support Adam after he had suffered a shock collapse at work. A year later Adam recovered from his mysterious undisclosed illness and Ken returned in August 2014.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Adam's existence is that of a retcon. Although off-screen, Susan didn't fake an abortion so she can leave Mike, she "aborted" her child as she wasn't prepared for motherhood. Also 2001 seems to hint that Ken never had contact with Susan since 1987 so wasn't aware of Adam, however this is untrue as he still visited Susan off-screen in that time.
