Turns out to be a misleading headline too :-(

Bill, the only original cast member from the first episode in 1960, initially admitted he had slept with “more than 100” women.

But when pushed about whether the real figure was nearer 1,000, he replied: “Well, I’m not denying it.”

Misleading headline in a British tabloid? Well now I don’t know what to believe.

His insatiable appetite earned him the nickname “C**k Roache” among other members of the cast.


That's absolutely amazing.

The guy's about to turn 80. I suspect many of his conquests are no longer with us.

That "Cock Roache" nickname is possibly the greatest thing I've ever heard. What a hero. I don't think that I'll be ever able to watch a scene on Corrie with Ken quite the same again. Like how I always think of Steve McFadden dogging whilst dressed as a pirate and doing a Scottish accent everytime I see Phil on Eastenders.

Bristolian accent surely?

Barlow's putting on another acting masterclass in Corrie right now. Peter Barlow has just turned himself in for murder and Ken isn't arsed at all, delivering his lines with trademark Barlow boredom.

Seriously, I've been laughing all day at Cock Roache. I don't care if the rest of the story is a lie, please let that be true.

Too busy thinking about how many lasses he was going to bed that evening probably.

After reading this article, I've learnt that there is a Bill "The Cock" Roache board game called 'Libel'

Posted Image

According to the product description:

Devised by William Roache after he sued the Sun for printing a defamatory article about his portrayal of Ken Barlow. The game 'guides players through the quicksand of assembling a full team of legal advisers in order to proceed to a full trial'. An entertaining and educational game for all the family to enjoy.


Sounds like a riot. Anyone got it?

I had never even heard of this guy until this news story broke, but it's rather tremendous.

How can you post a link to that Marina Hyde article and not mention the phrase "...the Nikki Sixx of the cobbles."? Amazing.

I love Marina Hyde. It's hard to believe that she used to have regular, consensual sex with Piers Morgan.

Haha... "oh no..." nice vid, and some serious acting chops.

I think now seems as good a time as any to mention that I don't think I have known who any of the people you have referenced in a post are, ever, unless it was a Seinfeld reference.
