LONDON (AFP): Three ageing stars of British television appeared in separate courts Tuesday, all accused of raping or assaulting women and young girls. Australian entertainer Rolf Harris, TV soap star William Roache and veteran presenter Dave Lee Travis deny the charges against them, most of which date back several decades. Roache, 81, is the world’s longest-serving soap star, having played character Ken Barlow in the ITV show “Coronation Street” since its first episode in 1960.
