Following a murderous exit last October in ITV's Emmerdale, Bill Ward will join Laura Whitmore and Stephen Billington in the cast of Peter James' latest stage thriller Not Dead Enough.
Bill is perhaps also best known for his multi award-winning turn as the villainous Charlie Stubbs in Coronation Street.
On the night Brian Bishop murdered his wife, he was sixty miles away, asleep in bed. At least that’s what he claims. But as Detective Superintendent Roy Grace continues to deal with the mysterious disappearance of his own wife, he starts to dig a little deeper into the chilling murder case and it soon becomes clear that love can be a dangerous thing.
Not Dead Enough is the third novel in the Roy Grace series and follows last year's successful production of The Perfect Murder
Bill Ward will step into the role of Roy Grace following Shane Richie from 18 April 2017.
