I'd dump Corrie star Bill if he cheated now - lover

BILL Roache's girlfriend has warned him not to return to his womanising ways after the revelations about his love life.

Emma Jesson, who is 37 years younger than the Coronation Street veteran, said they were "kindred spirits".

She told Hello! Magazine: "He did sleep with a lot of girls, but that was back in the 1960s.

"If he was like that now, I wouldn't be with him. And if he did resort to his old behaviour, I'd cut it off."

The 79-year-old actor, who has played strait-laced Ken Barlow in the show for more than half a century, recently revealed he had slept with hundreds of women and said his wild behaviour led fellow stars to dub him Cock Roache.

But Jesson said the couple's life now was a far cry from those days, saying: "Our lives are so busy that relaxing at home is our ultimate treat."
