'Corrie' star Roache the latest victim of a public perv walk
Well, that wasn't in the script, was it? After all, everybody who has spent the last four weeks of the trial listening to ever more lurid claims and accusations of vile sexual exploitation of young women in relation to fusty old Ken Barlow from Corrie thought he was bang to rights. Or maybe you didn't pay much attention.
After all, Bill Roache is hardly the first celebrity to be accused of vile crimes in recent times in Britain. In fact, in a post-Savile climate we have seen an endless array of ageing men who enjoyed differing levels of fame finally being held to account for their crimes.
You only need to look at the sickening charges laid against these once powerful men to see it's time for a long overdue reckoning.
