Bill Tarmey who left the cobbles in November as Jack Duckworth has revealed that his 44 year old son Carl's Brain Tumour was the reason he left the Soap.
Speaking to the Daily Express Tarmey reveals Carl's Aggressive Tumour which was found in 2009 has been treated well and has Reduced in size.
Tarmey Said: "There is no doubt that what happened had an influence on me deciding to leave the Street when I did."
"I felt I was better at home rather than at work. I felt I could do more."
Today Tarmey is going into his Son's Pub Dressed as Jack's Cross Dressing alter ego Ida Fag
About this Experience Bill said "I will be making a prat of myself, but that's all right. We want more awareness of the illness and the dangers of brain tumours. If wearing a blonde wig and having my hair cut is the price I have to pay to have my son still with me, then that's no price at all."
Us here at Telly Mix Towers wish Carl, Bill and the family The Best.
