Bill Tarmey first appeared as Jack Duckworth in 'Coronation Street' in 1979 when his screen wife Vera dragged him to Brian and Gail Tilsley's wedding . . . only to have him sneak off for a pint at the first opportunity.Bill has played the part of lovable rogue Jack for thirty-one years.He's retiring after the show's fiftieth birthday in December 2010.Bill now tells the full story of his time on the 'Street',revealing the hilarious japes behind the scenes with the actors who played Curly Watts,Reg Holdsworth,Alec Gilroy and many more.He also describes Jack's love scenes with Bet Lynch and Dulcie Froggatt,plus the more emotional times when Stan Ogden,Alf Roberts and screen wife Vera died.There's the fascinating story of Bill's early years,growing up on the streets of post-war Manchester - "just like 'Coronation Street' but not half as posh." Destined to be an asphalter like his dad,Bill never gave up his love of singing and,by the late 60's,he'd made a name for himself on the northern working men's club circuit.Taking work as a TV extra,where he found himself rubbing shoulders with Sir Laurence Olivier while Dame Diana Rigg cadged cigarettes from him,Bill became a star himself.He was a natural in the role of Jack, whose life uncanningly mirrored Bill's own with its lurches of fortune.Packed with anecdotes,this warm-hearted memoir is the book 'Coronation Street' fans have been waiting for. Since April 2013,again in March 2015 and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering its prices,weight allowances,dimensions and lowered its qualifying compensation rates too!
