SAM has been in the headlines after finding himself at the centre of Faye Brookes and Gareth Gates’ split.
On September 7, 2019, The Sun exclusively revealed that the Corrie co-stars had a fling. Here’s everything you need to know about the actor and what happened between him and Faye…
Who is Coronation Street’s Sam Robertson?
Sam is a Scottish actor and model who was born on October 11, 1985.
He’s best known for his roles in E4’s Beaver Falls as well as playing Adam Barlow in Coronation Street.
The actor studied drama and English at Manchester University before dropping out to throw himself into playing Adam Barlow in 2004.
He later reprised the same role in 2016 – which is where he met Faye.
The character has had his fair amount of flings on the show including with Maria Connor – which provoked a fight between him and Aidan in The Rovers.
He also went out with Sarah Platt and had a fling with Rosie Webster and most recently was involved with helping Eva Price get revenge on Aidan after discovering he was having an affair with Maria.
What happened between Sam Robertson and Faye Brookes?
On September 7, 2019, The Sun exclusively revealed that Faye had a secret fling with her Corrie co-star Sam Robertson during a two-week break from Gareth.
A source from the soap told us:“It was the talk of the Coronation Street set when Faye and Sam hooked up. Her castmates were under the impression the break from Gareth was simply to do with feeling overwhelmed by the pressure to make wedding plans.
“While they’d been a couple for a long time, after getting engaged Faye realised their relationship was moving to the next level — and she wasn’t 100 per cent sure that was what she wanted.
“Sam was a good friend and a shoulder to cry on. Before they realised it, one thing had led to another. But Faye was keen to make things work with Gareth and put a halt to things with Sam going any further.
“She wanted to be honest with Gareth and confessed what had happened while they were apart. He thought he could get over it but, in the end, it was simply too much.”
Why did Faye Brookes split from Gareth Gates?
Faye met former Pop Idol star Gareth in 2012 when they played on-stage lovers in the UK tour of Legally Blonde The Musical.
The pair have had a very on/off relationship and split in September 2018 after six years together.
However, in a complete u-turn Gareth announced that they had got back together in November 2018 and by January 2019 the pair were engaged.
But in August 2019 it was revealed the couple had split up again, with a source telling The Sun Faye and Gareth “just couldn’t make it work”.
