Bill Roache predicts 'dawning of new age'
'Coronation Street' actor Bill Roache has predicted a series of ''earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and tsunamis,'' will be sent to cleanse the earth in 2012, ahead of the dawning of a new golden age.
Bill Roache has predicted a series of "earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and tsunamis," will cleanse the earth in 2012.
The 79-year-old 'Coronation Street' actor - who portrays Ken Barlow in the ITV1 soap - believes the world is heading for a series of natural disasters sent to disperse "negative energy," which will then herald a new "golden age" where people will communicate telepathically.
He told Sky's 'The Moore Show': "This is what all the prophecies about 2012 are. Unfortunately there are some cleansings that will have to take place where negative energy has to be discharged and these will be in the form of earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and tsunamis.
"The doom and gloom, as they are saying, is that December 21, 2012, is the end of the Earth. It isn't, but it's the change and the end of a lot of things as we know them.
"We'll move into the golden age which will be a wonderful age where we'll all love. We'll communicate telepathically, we'll all be aware of our spiritual selves, and it will be a beautiful place to be."
Bill - who has appeared in 'Coronation Street' since it launched 51 years ago - also explained he has held strong spiritual beliefs for some time, and a homeopathic doctor helped him in his early years on the ITV1 soap when he struggled to find comfort and happiness.
He added: "That guy was able to appear on the astral plane, and come into a dream and actually speak to me that way.
"Nowadays spiritual things are more accepted and it's going to keep getting bigger. But when I started, these things were very unusual and you had to be careful who you talked to. People would get hostile."
