William wins on Millionaire charity show

Ilkeston-born actor William Roache, famous for his role as Ken Barlow in Coronation Street, won £9,000 for Rainbows children’s hospice on a special soap star edition of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

Joined by his Corrie co-star Michelle Collins, the pair answered eight questions correctly to scoop £50,000.

It was split between Rainbows, two other charities and a viewer who won a phone-in competition.
