Charlie Lawson, 59, revealed he was encouraged by his current partner Debbie Stanley to scatter his late wife Lesley Bond’s ashes, years after her tragic death. The Coronation Street star reflected on their relationship as he admitted the make-up designer “had a horrible end” while dealing with a prescription drug and alcohol addiction. The Jim McDonald actor said Lesley was “damaged” and battled “chronic depression". She was found dead in 2010 aged 55, due to a fall and hypothermia.
She had a horrible end. She’d become a raging alcoholic.
Charlie had split up with Lesley before she died, but he has admitted she still “has a special part” of his heart.
Charlie recalled: “She had a horrible end. She’d become a raging alcoholic.
“There was no one else involved, and we still loved each other very much, but it was becoming dangerous to be with her.
“She was living in Oxford and had a fall. Police were called a couple of days later as she’d been reported missing.”
The actor then spoke about the “awful” moment when he was called too identify his second wife.
He continued to The Mirror: “They said I had to identify her. They initially thought she had been murdered, but she had died of hypothermia.
