A woman said Coronation Street star William Roache "pushed her on to a bed" and was "cold and calculated" as he raped her, a jury has heard.

The woman, now 62, said the alleged rapes took place in his two homes in Haslingden, Lancashire, Preston Crown Court heard.

Mr Roache, 81, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, denies two counts of raping a 15-year-old girl in 1967.

He also denies five counts of indecent assault involving four girls.

Those alleged offences involve girls aged 16 or under in Manchester between 1965 and 1971, the court heard.

'Panic stricken'
The jury was shown a video of the alleged rape victim's police interview from March 2013.

In it she told police the actor took her into a bedroom of a bungalow he owned when she was 15 years old.

Court sketch
Mr Roache was allowed to leave the dock and sit next to his lawyer so he could watch the video recording
She said: "I was shocked. There was no warning... I didn't know what to do.

"I can just remember thinking 'God, I just want to get out of here. I didn't know what to make of it, I was just so scared'."

She described the first alleged rape as "cold and calculated".

The woman said: "I didn't fight, but I couldn't push him off.

"He was too heavy for me... It was very uncomfortable but at the time I was just panic stricken. "

"I just wanted to get up. I just wanted to go home... It was very painful. He was lying on top of me he was a lot bigger than me.. I just thought I was never going to get out.

"I thought it was never going to finish," she added.

Mr Roache was given permission to leave the dock and sit next to his lawyer while the recording was played in court so he could view it.

The woman said: "I thought it must be my fault. I didn't know why it had happened. I'd gone round there in all innocence."

'Gullible'
She went on to describe a second rape "a few months" after the first, which she alleges took place at a different cottage owned by Mr Roache in Haslingden.

She said the actor pushed her up against a wall as she thought: "Oh God, I can't believe this."

The woman told the court she did not report the alleged rapes because she blamed herself.

In her police interview, the woman said: "I thought I was to blame, especially the second time."

"I was gullible, I was a kid. I would never have repeated it to anyone," she added.

The woman came forward in the wake of a number of celebrity sex scandals, the jury heard.

She said: "It has started to bother me because there might be other people that this has happened to."

The trial continues.

So she was raped in his Bungalow, then a few months later went to his second house????

Sure.

And 40+ years ago.

I'm glad these old dirty bastards are getting what they deserve,  wtf is a matter with some people they can't stick to women their own age? Why would a 62 year old women make it up? are they all making it up? Paedophiles can't be cured they are mentally fcked backwards and deserved to have their piece given the guillotine treatment in a public show with the crowd then rushing in afterwards to beat them to death.
OR

We could be even harder on them and send them to prison for 6 months with warm meals and a comfy bead in a single cell.

Only person worse than a peado are the human rights activist who protect them and inadvertently encourage them to re offend, soft country, should make you ashamed to be English.

Innocent until proven guilty.

It has amazed me about Jimmy Saville how every single report is just assumed to be true? Ho many are attention seekers knowing he can't defend himself? I'm sure he did do a lot and it's a shame he isn't still alive to face justice but it seems a bit too easy to accuse him. As for the rest of them, i'm sure some are guilty and if they are they should get severe punishments but we do need to remember people like Roache aren't guilty until a jury finds them guilty. I can't mention him without saying that I can't stand him and he seems a total **** but that is of course, irrelevant.

Whether he is guilty or not,surely there should be some sort of time bar.

How can you go back 50 years?

There is no evidence.

That's up to the CPS. If there's no evidence then it would never have got anywhere near court.

A woman who claims William Roache forced her to perform a sex act told police she was angry at a TV interview in which he said abuse was punishment for previous lives, a court has heard.

The woman made the comments in a police interview played to the jury at Mr Roache's trial at Preston Crown Court.

The woman said the 81-year-old sexually assaulted her in his Rolls-Royce car.

Mr Roache, who denies two rapes and five indecent assaults between 1965 and 1971, apologised for his abuse remarks.
