Bill Roache has been warned by his girlfriend Emma Jesson not to return to his womanising ways otherwise she will leave him

Bill Roache has been warned by his girlfriend not to return to his womanising ways.

The 'Coronation Street' actor - who has previously admitted to bedding 1,000 women, including a co-star from the ITV1 soap - has been told by his girlfriend Emma Jesson that he will be ditched if he returns to his "old behaviour".

The 43-year-old weathergirl said: "He did sleep with a lot of girls but that was back in the 1960s.

"If he was like that now, I wouldn't be with him. And if he did resort to his old behaviour, I'd cut it off."

Despite her concerns, Emma - who started dating Bill in November 2010 - admits the 79-year-old actor, who turns 80 later this month, is now much more relaxed and the couple feel "completely at ease" in each other's company.

She added to HELLO! magazine: "Our lives are so busy that relaxing at home is our ultimate treat. While Bill learns his lines or listens to the cricket, I read a book or prepare a meal. We feel completely at ease with each other. He doesn't look or behave like an 80-year-old. To me, he's still young."

Bill - who plays Ken Barlow in 'Coronation Street' - said: "In many ways, I feel I haven't grown up, and there's so much left I want to do. I'm not religious but I'd like to develop myself spiritually.

"I believe in life after death and that we choose the experiences we go through."
