UK media savages William Roache for Good Morning comment

William-Roache-GMThe UK media has picked up on another comment made by Coronation Street actor William Roache in New Zealand this week.

After getting a savaging in the tabloids for his comments regarding victims of sexual assault on TVNZ’s Sunday, the British media is again criticising the 80-year-old this time for a piece of innuendo on Good Morning.

During a cooking segment with Jeanette Thomas, Roache went to chop a tomato but discovered that Thomas had already done so.

The following exchange occurred:

Roache: “You naughty girl.”

“I would say I am going to smack your bottom but, I would love to do that, but we are not allowed to on TV.”

Thomas: “I’ve heard that about you. A thousand women…”

Roache: “Yeah I know, I know… There’s life in the old dog yet.”
