Bill on Coronation Street

Peter Armitage (born 1937) plays Bill Webster on Coronation Street.

Peter trained at the East 15 Acting School and has been a regular on British screens since the 1970s.

He is currently in his third spell as the character Bill Webster on Coro, having first appeared as the character in 1984.

Peter is also well-remembered in the UK for appearing in a Yellow Pages advert in the 1980s as a Dad trying to convince his son not to have a racing bike as a birthday present. The ad ended with Armitage saying the line "I was right about that saddle though!".

Peter is a keen Motorcyclist and is often seen riding his bike through the Lake District.

First appearance on Coronation Street in the UK:
6 February 1984: Kevin Webster summoned his father Bill to inspect the leaking roof at Brian Tilsley's garage.
