Coronation Street Ken’s 1,000 Women – Bill Roache’s nickname is ‘Cock Roache’

by | 15th, March 2012

WILLIAM Roache, Coronation Street’s Ken Barlow, has slept with 1,000 women – and not all of them as part of the plot.

To the Daily Mirror, Ken’s confessions on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories is front-page news:

Corrie Ken sensation: I’ve slept with a thousand women, claims actor Bill Roache

The “claims” is the tabloid’s narrowing of the eyes and sideways glance. But Ken lives with Deirdre, says the Mirror. Ken is boring. Sure he’s been married four times – twice to Dreaery; once to Valerie Tatlock (1962) and Janet Reid (1973)  – and has cobbled Wendy Crozier, Alma Sedgewick, Maggie Redman, Susan Cunningham, Marion Lund, Pip Mistral, Jackie Marsh, Yvonne Chappell, Norma Ford, Elaine Perkins, Rita Littlewood, Janet Reid, Gaynor Burton, Peggy Barton, Wendy Nightingale, Sally Robinson, Sonia Price, Sally Waterman, Sue Jeffers, Anita Scott, Martha Fraser, and Denise Osbourne – but Ken’s bored them into bed. They only shag him to shut him up and to see if he’s alive.

Life soon mirrors art in the story that Bill shagged the shows’s Pat Phoenix.

The man we know call “C**k Roache” (what Bill says is his nickname among cast members) adds that he used to get through half bottle of gin a day and has smoked cannabis.

And the thing is he looks good on it. Might Bill’s lifestyle be the start of new fad in celebrity diets and keep-fit? Don’t pick up weights. Pick up women. Drink gin for sun-kissed golden hair. Smoke cannabis to hold down a job and keep your memory into your 80s.

The Cock Roache diet might not work for you, but if you’re caught taking illegal drugs and cheating on your wife, just tell them Ken made you do it. They’ll understand. The man they call Cock is irresisiable…
