Tonight: William Roache on Who Do You Think You Are?

William Roache is the subject of documentary 'Who Do You Think You Are' tonight, Wednesday September 26 at 9pm. on BBC1.

The Mirror reports a sneak preview of some of the more salacious facts that William discovers.

Turns out his grandfather was a violent alcoholic and his mother was sent away as an infant to an aunt in Staffordshire to protect her. He gains respect for his grandmother for carrying on a business.

He also finds out his great-grandad gave electric shocks to Victorian clients on Blackpool seafront to cure them of “nervous diseases.

For all this and more, tune in tonight.

No surprise to me that his great-granddad was into alternative medicine. Apple doesn't fall far from the tree, there.
