Anne Kirkbride's husband responds to Bill Roache's claims

Anne Kirkbride's husband, David Beckett, has responded to Bill Roache's claims today, says The Mirror.

Bill claimed she was an alcoholic before her death, but now her real life husband has insisted she hadn't touched alcohol for 30 years.

David Beckett was forced to speak, says the Mirror, after Anne's co-star Bill Roache claimed she was an alcoholic who struggled to cope in her final days on the soap.

In response to the claims, Anne’s real life husband David said: “Whilst Anne would describe herself as an ‘alcoholic’, she had not touched a drop of alcohol in 30 years.”

ITV declined to comment directly on the claims made about her final days on set working. They added: “We never discuss health matters relating to an employee.”
