Corrie bad lad starring in Spice Girls musical

Bill Ward, who played Coronation Street's Charlie Stubbs - the one who got bashed to death by Tracy Barlow - is now showing his more artistic side.

He's currently starring as Johnny in the Spice Girls musical Viva Forever in London’s West End.

And an exhibition of Bill's photography – depicting some of his favourite scenes of Manchester (view some here at the MEN)  – is going on show at a new exhibition, called ‘Passing Through’.

It features shots of places that Bill visited during time off from filming during his spell in Weatherfield from 2003-7.

The photos include moody depictions of Castlefield basin, Trafford’s swing bridge and the Lancashire coast. Bill said he became fascinated with Manchester’s canals during his time on Corrie - and always takes the time to photograph areas such as Castlefield basin when he’s back in town.

The exhibition is at the Wendy J Levy gallery in Didsbury between February 12 -March 1. The gallery is open 10am-5pm Tuesday- Saturday.

Bill will give a talk about his work at the gallery in Warburton Street, on Sunday, February 11 from 3-5pm.

He was also on Silent Witness recently doing another great job of a very beliveable baddie

What appalls me is that someone is parlaying the fluff perpetrated by that slightest of "bands," the Spice Girls, into a musical. Their fifteen minutes of fame were up long ago. What next? Milli Vanilli's nonsense stretched into a grand opera? AND people will pay good money to go and watch this mediocrity.

Well Stephen its up to them, its called CHOICE. What I want to know is how Bill Ward looks younger now than when we was in the Street!
