    Years after the trial, he told a 'Sun' reporter, 'I am totally guilty of everything the police said.'
    He was fired from 'Coronation Street' for giving unauthorized interviews in which he criticized other cast members and the production staff.

    He also told the Sun, 'There was no sexual intent.'
    He felt the producers of 'Coronation Street' had been disloyal, noting 'About ten of us built the Street brick by brick almost. We sweated tears of blood, working 18 hours a day.'
