Coronation Street actor Bill Roache is to appear in court today charged with two counts of rape of a 15-year-old girl in 1967.
The 81-year-old, who has played Ken Barlow in the ITV soap since its launch, was arrested at his home in Wilmslow, Cheshire, on May 1.
Earlier this month Roache "strenuously" denied the accusations.
