Peter Armitage beats cancer and wants Corrie return

On Coronation Street, Kevin's dad Bill Webster had a heart attack last year.  In real life, the actor who played Bill, Peter Armitage has battled cancer and now wants to get back to work on the Street.

The Mirror reports that Peter Armitagewas diagnosed with bowel cancer last year.  He says that he's currently in remission and will have check-ups every six months for the next five years.

He says: "It’s 30 years since I first started on the cobbles and I’ve always come in and out. Now Michael le Vell has been cleared, Kevin is due back on the cobbles in the spring and they’ve said Bill is fine.

"I’d like to go back again, too, if there’s a storyline for me."

I'd love to see Bill back on the Street - as long as he doesn't bring the dreadful Aunty Pam with him.
