ill Roache meditates on the loo.

The "Coronation Street" star is a big fan of the relaxation technique but insists the most important thing is to find somewhere quiet to do it - even if that is in the bathroom.

He said: "Meditation might sound complicated or alien, but it is a discipline. 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. 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."

And the 86-year-old actor is convinced he will live to 107.

Speaking at a talk in Canada, The Sun newspaper quotes him as saying: "You set your time clock to a certain age - I decided on 107. Ageing is a belief system. If you believe you get older, your energy goes down so your cell renewal process goes down."

Since then, Bill has been using psychics and mediums to connect with his daughter Edwina, who died when she was 18 months old from bronchial pneumonia, and his wife Sara Mottram, who passed away from a heart condition.

One psychic told him that Edwina is working as a nurse in the afterlife, while Sara is having a "wonderful time" in the "spiritual realm" because it's just as "real as here."

He added: "There are schools, hospitals, you name it."
