Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s William Roache Life Story – Ken Barlow Coronation Street….
William Roache has been the Star of Coronation Street for over 50 years. He is listed in Guinness World Records as the longest serving living television actor in a continuous role!
This is Alex Belfield’s 2nd 20 minute Exclusive interview with William recorded at ITV Granada for the BBC in 2009.
It’s not just a Coronation Street acting record, it’s a world record!
William looks incredible for 80 and is still at the top of his game. In 2013 Williams (sort of) confirmed he’d slept with over 1000 women – WOW!
In 2012 his life was torn apart when he was arrested and charged by Operation Yewtree who accused him of several sexual offenses. Mr. Roache was cleared of all charges in Feb 2014. William was suspended from Coronation Street during this process but will return in late 2014.
This devastating blow came after the death of his beloved wife in 2009.
After a very tough couple of years, William talks to Belfield for another rare, in-depth, frank and revealing interview about his career, life and the changes he’s made in his life….
In 1999, Roache was the recipient of the British Soap Awards Lifetime Achievement Award for his role as Ken Barlow.
In 2003, Roache appeared on Celebrity Stars in Their Eyes as Perry Como singing the song “Catch a Falling Star”. In September and October 2005, he appeared as a celebrity contestant in Ant & Dec’s Gameshow Marathon. He was the winner of The Golden Shot remake, progressing through to Bullseye where he was beaten by television presenter Vernon Kay.
He later entered All Star Family Fortunes, hosted by Kay, but lost by two points to his competitors
