Bill Roache once created this boardgame called LIBEL
BILL Roache, the Coronation Street star in the mire for alleged sex abuse. He denies raping a 15-year-old in 1967. He has been charged with two counts of rape of a 15-year-old girl in 1967. So much for the facts. And all had best stick to them. Mr Roache is an expert in libel, once devising a board game called Libel.
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.
It was, predictably, a flop. But Roache did win £50,000 in damages from the Sun who wrongly called him “boring“.
