Coronation Street star Bill Roache has been warned by his girlfriend not to cheat on her or she’ll leave him.

The actor, who plays Ken Barlow in the soap, has been dating 41-year-old weathergirl Emma Jesson since November 2010, and he recently revealed the extent of his womanising ways on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

Bill once had an affair with his Corrie co-star Pat Phoenix, who played Elsie Tanner, and he revealed that he’s bedded over 1,000 women.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, Emma said of her 79-year-old boyfriend: “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.”

Bill and Emma’s life together is quite a sombre affair, with the pair preferring a relaxing night at home to going out and painting the town red.

Emma explained: “Our lives are so busy that relaxing at home is our ultimate treat.

“While Bill learns his lines or listens to the cricket, I read a book or prepare a meal. We feel completely at ease with each other.

“He doesn’t look or behave like an 80-year-old. To me, he’s still young.”
