Middlemiss was supposedly born to a young unmarried woman from Stockton-on-Tees. She says she was forced to relinquish him for adoption when he was 10 days old. When he was 25 she recognized him on the television (Middlemiss plays Des Barnes in Coronation Street) and has followed his career since then, but kept her identity secret. In May 1997 she went to the Daily Mirror newspaper with her story, but Middlemiss refused to comment.
