ITVCoronation Street star reveals they meditate on the TOILET for 3 HOURS to be 'peaceful'
Coronation Street staple William Roche believes meditating will add a couple extra years to his life and has confessed to using the toilet as his haven.
The 86-year-old actor, who has played Ken Barlow since the inauguration of Coronation Street, revealed he mediates on the toilet for up to three hours at a time.
“Meditation might sound complicated or alien, but it is a discipline,” he said.
“You find a place in your home where you won't be bothered - it might be the loo. If it's the loo, use it.”
Describing how he practices medication, he explained: “Sit there and balance your breathing. I think about the waves on the seashore coming in and going out.
“You leave all your worldly goods outside.”
"I go into a peaceful state, I feel wonderful. I got to a point where I could sit for three hours,” he said at a talk in Canada.
The soap star also believes he will live to 107 due to his regime and insists quiet contemplation can beat stress.
William, who is a healer at Pure Love Movement in Cheshire, insists age is a “belief system” and said you can set how old you will be when you die.
He said: “You set your time clock to a certain age - I decided on 107.
