Former Coronation Street star Bill Tarmey has revealed the truth behind his decision to leave the show. At the time, many assumed he'd quit because of his own ill health.
But in his only television interview, Bill's revealed it was concern for his son Carl that forced him to walk away from the role of Jack Duckworth, which he'd played since 1979. Claire Fallon has this report.
