==Creation and casting==
Prior to playing Bill, Armitage had previously appeared in the serial in 1977 cast in the small role of a painter and decorator working on a job at the Rovers Return.〔 In between jobs, Armitage starred in an advertisement for the ''Yellow Pages'' in which he played the role of a father. After watching the advert, the serial's producer H. V. Kershaw decided that Armitage would be right for a role in ''Coronation Street'' and contacted his agent.〔 Armitage was interviewed for the job by Bill Podmore, who informed him that they were looking to introduce new characters. Armitage was under the impression that he would be playing a guest character, but Podmore then offered him a one-year contract. He said that he could not believe that he won the role because he had never imagined himself being "a ''Coronation Street'' actor". Armitage was also unaware that it was Kershaw's involvement in his casting, until Kershaw informed the actor some months later.〔
