Bill Roache likes ‘peaceful’ Coronation Street set following Covid-19 protocols

OHMYGOSSIP — Bill Roache “quite likes” the ‘Coronation Street’ set with the new coronavirus protocols, because it is “very peaceful”.
The soap legend, who has played Ken Barlow on the cobbles since the show’s first episode in December 1960, felt as though he was “going back to school after the holidays” when he returned to the studios after the first national lockdown, but he is enjoying the peace and quiet amid the new health and safety regulations.
He said: “It was pretty much the longest period of time I had physically been away from ‘Coronation Street’ in 60 years.
“It was like going back to school after the holidays. And I was going back to a totally different set up.
“I quite like it. It’s very peaceful at work and everything is done very well.
“There is a great feeling of camaraderie among the actors.
“It’s just strange that you can’t be nearer to each other in a scene than two metres. But so far that hasn’t been a problem.”
The 88-year-old actor and a number of the other more at-risk stars returned to the set later due to health and safety regulations, but Bill did have a little taster about what the studios would be like post-lockdown after filming a segment with former ‘Corrie’ star Joanna Lumley (Elaine Perkins).
He added: “I had already gone in to do an interview with Joanna Lumley for part of her latest TV project. Of course her first break was playing Ken’s girlfriend Elaine Perkins in 1973.
“I’ve met her since she left Coronation Street at an awards ceremony and at Windsor Castle when it reopened after the fire.
“Various celebrities were invited to mingle with the royal family and I was one of those and so was she.
“So I had seen the studio in its new marked out protocols state and it wasn’t such a big shock.”
