His family tree must be worth looking into. How many marriages has he had? Was he not married twice to same woman. Surprise appearance at a respectable beano like that?? The brass nerve of the man :-0 :-0 :-0

I do hope you are joking, John 'cos I don't think that was Dizzi's point :-)

Perhaps it's a surprise to William Roache - maybe he doesn't know :-)

:-D :-D Sue. Yes, i know he is a respectable actor with a longstanding monogamous marriage and an old boy of Rydal in Colwyn Bay. But it is difficult to disassociate him from the part he plays. :-)

I suppose it will be a "surprise" appearance if only you, me and Dizzi know about it. And, until this thread, only Dizzi was privy to the surprise. Perhaps it was an email from Bill himself??

He's been married twice, divorced from his first and his second wife died

Hardly prolific!

Gins. Thought at first you meant him as his Corrie character Ken. Have learnt something this morning. I thought he had been married for many years and they had a son and daughter. Thought I had recently seen them as a family on WDYTYA.

But, yes, his second wife (which is the one I associate him with) died in 2009 aged late 50's. Very attractive lady and so are their grown up children.

It really is a puzzle as his show went out September 26th 2012. :-S

Perhaps the surprise is for another person... he is related to them

Sometimes it can prove very difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction I guess
