Speaking on Lorraine today, Adam said: "She's [my rock]. She's the one who convinced me to do the show.

"I was going to say no. I was kind of like, 'I didn't enjoy it much the first time around', and she was the one who said, 'Look, you are who you are now and you're a completely different man. Go and see what it's like and see if you enjoy it'.

"Once I met the boys, it was a no brainer. I just knew it was something I could enjoy."

Prior to his appearance on Lorraine, Katy - who is enjoying a rare day off - took to Twitter to encourage fans to tune in.

Adam, who found fame in Coronation Street during the 90s before launching a pop career, got engaged to Katy in August 2012.
