Coronation Street’s Bill Roache to “talk” to his dogs via a psychic live on This Morning tomorrow!
And today it’s been revealed that Bill, who holds strong spiritual beliefs and is a member of a religious “sect” in Manchester, is to attempt to communicate with his pet dogs via a psychic, which will be televised.
The bizarre event is set to take place on tomorrow’s edition of This Morning, and will see Bill – who of course plays the role of Ken Barlow on Corrie – joined by psychic Jackie Weaver, who Bill’s turned to for years to help him understand his dogs’ thoughts and “how they’re feeling.”
Bill first revealed last year that he calls Jackie in if his dogs seem upset. Of one of his consultations with Jackie, Bill told The Sun, “Jackie said [my dog] Poppy even did an impersonation of my on-screen wife Deirdre, saying, ‘Oh, Ken’ in a drawn-out, exasperated way.
“I wasn’t aware Jackie had ever watched me in the show. I had a great deal to learn about this animal world.”
Of Bill’s forthcoming appearance on This Morning, a show insider said, “It should be quite a spectacle.”
The paper adds, “The last time the daytime show had a pet psychic on, presenter Holly Willoughby’s cat predicted the mum of two would fall pregnant again. That prophecy hasn’t yet come true.”
However it seems Holly was perturbed by the whole thing.
A show source said, “Holly was so scared she needed therapy. She is hoping she will be stronger this time but she certainly isn’t looking forward to it.”
