Nearly four months after he suddenly lost his 58-year-old wife Sara, Coronation Street actor Bill Roache has spoken about the impact the tragedy has had on him.
The 77-year-old soap favourite reveals he misses his wife of 35 years most when he wakes in the morning.
"She was my best friend, she was everything to me," says Bill. "When there was bad news we talked through it. When I had good news, she was the first person I would ring."
"That's the thing I miss the most – talking all the time."
The actor finds solace in his belief Sara is at peace. "It's wonderful for me that I know she is fine. I feel her spirit has gone to its true home, so I don't worry about her. I just miss her."
The couple have two children - Verity, 27, and 23-year-old Will.
