Bill Roache (Ken Barlow from Coronation Street) came to Neston to open a new development and I was lucky enough to spend a couple of hours with him. He happily posed with everybody who attended and chatted to them all with great interest - what a gentleman he is.

I added texture in PS to get a more gritty feel to this particular one and I thank you for looking

One of my favorite shows. Great shot! By the way, it airs in Canada about 7 months behind you. I'm always taking a sneek peek ahead.
Hello Kathy, yes I love the show too so it was lovely to chat with him but he didn't give anything away regarding storyline Smile

An excellent capture of a Soap Legend! Neston is not too far away from where I live! I'd like to see the colour version out of interest.

I once met Michael Levelle in Arnside, but didn't get a picture of him, as he probably gets hounded by snappers like me all the time!
