'Coronation Street' star Bill Roache is going to try and talk to his dogs via a psychic on live TV.
The 81-year-old actor - who has played Ken Barlow in the ITV soap since 1960 - will attempt to converse with his pet Jack Russell mutts Poppy and Harry via animal psychic Jackie Weaver during an appearance on 'This Morning' on Tuesday (12.03.13).
The attempt at inter-species communication is part of the daytime programme's 'Supernatural Week' which starts today (11.03.13).
A 'This Morning' source told The Sun newspaper: "It should be quite a spectacle."
Bill has previously given his beloved pets psychic readings to try and learn what they are thinking and claims the pooches impersonated his 'Coronation Street' wife Deirdre.
The soap legend said: "Jackie said Poppy even did an impersonation of my on-screen wife Deirdre, saying, 'Oh, Ken,' in a drawn-out, exasperated way.
"I wasn't aware Jackie had ever watched me in the show. I have a great deal to learn about this animal world."
Bill is known for his alternative beliefs and has now joined the Pure Love Movement, which claims the power of love can have healing properties.
The actor - who has admitted to bedding over 1,000 women - has even given up sex to focus on his spiritual beliefs and focus on developing healing powers.
Bill said: "Miracles can happen in healing. I heard about one lad who was suffering from cancer, who was cured instantly. I think we'll see more of that soon.
"I could put my hands on someone and cure them of something really serious. But that will only happen if it will help the message to be heard."
