'Coronation Street' stalwart William Roache thinks his on screen alter ego will stay with wife Dierdre Barlow (Anne Kirkbride) forever

William Roache thinks Ken and Deirdre Barlow are "soulmates".

The actor's 'Coronation Street' alter ego was amazed to see footage of his wife (Anne Kirkbride) in a clinch with Lewis Archer (Nigel Havers) recently, and despite the couple racking up a number of infidelities throughout their marriage, the show stalwart can't see them ever ending up with anyone else.

He said: "Ken and Deirdre are soulmates, obviously. They've both been around the block a few times. I think they shouldn't inflict themselves on anyone else.

"I can see them living their lives out together - but there will always be problems along the way for those two."

William also doesn't think the latest problem in their marriage will cause any serious problems.

He added: "It's nothing serious. It's more of a humiliation for everyone concerned. They are still together in a manner of speaking, and it's just like a family tiff really.

"So they will be able to get through it."
