William Roache breaks silence over hearing trauma

William Roache, who plays Coronation Street's Ken Barlow, has launched a nationwide search for hard of hearing high achievers to enter the Specsavers Sound Barrier Star Awards, admitting he has secretly been battling serious hearing difficulties throughout the past 50 years.

William is talking about his hearing problems for the first time as he launches the 2010 Specsavers Sound Barrier Star Awards, which recognise achievement or courage in people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Run by Specsavers hearing centres in support of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, the awards were fronted in 2009 by his on-screen Coronation Street mistress, actress Stephanie Beacham.

Anyone can nominate themselves, a friend or family member to enter the Sound Barrier Star Awards by visiting one of over 400 Specsavers hearing centres nationwide and picking up a nomination form, or downloading a form online at www.specsavers.co.uk/hearing.
