Simon Gregson, who plays Steve McDonald, said: "I loved Pete what a lovely man very sad RIP lovely man".

Peter was widely known for playing Bill Webster in the ITV soap, the father of Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell). He told The Mirror: "I've put my life on hold for the past few months, but as soon as the ileostomy is reversed - hopefully next month - I'd love to get back to work again".

The couple later returned to our screens in 2006 when Bill headed back to the cobbles to visit his family, but he began an affair with Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls).

His other acting credits included roles in 1970s BBC drama "The Befrienders" and short-lived David Jason sitcom "Lucky Feller".

In the 1980s, Peter also appeared in a Yellow Pages advert as a father trying to convince his son not to have a racing bike as a birthday present.
