‘Coronation Street’ actor Bill Roache had to be hospitalized with pneumonia and just days before his eightieth birthday. The British actor who is the father to Linus Roache of Law Order is ill with potentially-deadly lung infection shortly after a speaking tour of Canada and is now trying to get better at his home following a short visit to the hospital.
He does hope for recovery soon as he would like to celebrate his eightieth birthday with a party. A spokeswoman for Roche tells The People,
”Bill is currently at home recovering from pneumonia. It isn’t ideal, especially with his 80th birthday coming up. But he is doing very well and feeling much better now.”
