Commenting on how the calendar came about, Adam said: "It started as a joke between a few regulars teasing me about my naked photos during the 90's."
"They’d had a few beers and thought they could do better.. so I told them to prove it! Although I may have regretted that dare at times since, we’re hoping it will really do some good."
Meanwhile, the ITV presenter added: "I started asking people if they were genuinely up for it, honestly thinking nothing would come of it, but I was really moved by how many were willing to show their mettle!
"We managed to pull this off together in less than a month. In addition to the amazing funds we hope it’ll raise, the way it’s brought everyone together has been truly heart-warming.

"Every month features one of their regulars, or a group, each choosing props which reflect their personalities to hide their modesty.
"It also includes advice on how to check for cancer at home and increase awareness and dialogue, with all profits going to fund research for prostate and testicular cancer at The Christie Charity in Manchester."
According to Katy, all participants involved in the making of the charity product wanted the donations to go towards men’s cancer charity and research.
Commenting on their decision, Katy added: "They wanted to direct the donation towards men’s cancers because these are significantly underfunded and also not talked about enough"
"There are a few innuendos in there but the whole point is it opens the conversation and gives men the confidence to check themselves and speak openly to friends about their concerns."
This was as Adam joked: "I’ve never been prouder of our community, this sort of thing really takes some balls!"
He was always known for his buff body in Corrie but has been open about a tragic secret that was behind his ripped physique.
Adam suffers from Ankylosing Spondylitis, a rare disease which risks his spine fusing together.
If he didn't work out every day, he would have to spend his life in a wheelchair.
