Bill told The Sun: ‘I’m getting younger every day. A lot of it is just belief.

‘It’s a collective consciousness, ”Oh I am too old for this”. It’s all in the mind. I wasn’t joking when I said I was getting younger every year.

‘If you think positively, your cells will renew themselves all the time. If you go down, the renewal process will go down. If you stay up, the renewal process will go up. You don’t have to age as much as people think. I’m not, anyway.’

Since first appearing on the cobbles on December 9, 1960, Bill – who has the Guinness World Record for the longest-serving male television star in a continuous role – has remained a fixture on the ITV soap.   

Last month, Bill joined fellow Corrie icon Barbara Knox, 87, who plays Rita Tanner, to return to the soap’s set in Manchester and film for the show’s sixtieth anniversary special.
