This 2013 Sunday item sees Garth Bray interviewing veteran Coronation Street actor William Roache, and being shown around the Manchester set. After defending Coro actor Michael Le Vell (later acquitted of sex abuse charges), Roache made headlines for comments that appeared to partially blame victims. He argues that people who are aware they are "pure love" won't become victims, but adds that events in our past lives can factor in. Roache later apologised for any offence caused. Two months later he faced charges of rape and indecent assault. He was found not guilty on all counts.
If someone has done something wrong, the law will take its course. But even so, all of us, whatever, whether they are proven guilty or not, we should not be judgemental about anybody, ever. We shouldn't go around condemning, unforgiving.– William Roache
