Ken Morley Used To Imagine His ‘Coronation Street’ Co-Star Julie Goodyear “As A Dominatrix”

The former soap star who played supermarket manager Reg Holdsworth from 1989 to 1995 admitted he had his own crushes on set, including Julie (Bet Lynch), who once gave him a slap after he kissed her toes.

He told The Sun newspaper: “She was another fantastic sex symbol and I often imagined her as a dominatrix – and she did at least slap me once.

“I remember doing this scene where she was on a bed and I was on the floor and I decided to kiss her bare toes, then run my tongue up her legs.

“As I reached her knee, Julie slapped me on the head and the whole place fell about laughing. It was then I realised we’d make a great comedy double act.”

The 77-year-old actor has also admitted he once “got a bit hot and bothered” over Barbara Knox’s (Rita Tanner) outfit on the cobbles.

He said: “For some inexplicable reason Barbara was wearing this fantastically sexy crinoline dress, and without thinking about it, I got a bit hot and bothered.

“As I waltzed out of camera shot, one of the floor managers came across to ask what was going on.

“When I explained something had come up, he suggested we take a few minutes’ break.”

Ken – who married his wife Susan in 1989 – also fancied Sherrie Hewson, who played his on-screen spouse Maureen, and he even had a thing for one of the ‘Corrie’ bosses.

He added: “Back then we all watched ‘Coronation Street’ in black and white, with characters like Albert Tatlock, Minnie Caldwell, Ena Sharples and Stan and Hilda Ogden.

“Leonard Swindley was a great character and Elsie Tanner, played by Pat Phoenix, we all loved her on screen.

“I must confess, decades later I fancied the executive producer Carolyn Reynolds. But we were both happily married and she was the boss.”
