Well, the dear lady clearly believes whatever he told her. Plus, he has not been found guilty yet.
- Blanca Fouche, 31, is dating Michael Le Vell, 48, who plays Kevin Webster
- She lives just a few doors away from him and confirmed they are dating
- Mother-of-two said: ‘He’s told me not to say anything’
Blanca Fouche has confirmed she is seeing Michael Le Vell, 48, who plays mechanic Kevin Webster in the show.
The raven-haired beauty lives a few doors away from him in Hale, Greater Manchester, and says she has been seeing him for a few weeks after first becoming interested in him from afar.
Le Vell will go on trial at Manchester crown court in September after being charged with 19 child sex offences – six counts of raping a child, six counts of indecently assaulting a child, and seven counts of sexual activity with a child.
The pair met after Ms Fouche, whose Facebook profile says she works in a school and was once engaged in 2009, moved in with a friend who lives near the actor. He has lent her his car to help her move house and she often meets with him at the nearby Railway Pub or his home.
She told the Daily Mirror: ‘I’ve liked him from a distance for a long time. We’ve held hands and walked down the street, we’ve been careful, but we’ve not been hiding.
‘I don’t want to say anything that might upset him. He’s told me not to say anything.’
Le Vell told the newspaper that she’s a neighbour and a friend and refused to comment further.
A staff member at the Railway Pub also refused to comment.
The 19 alleged offences all relate to one complainant and all took place during the period between 2001 and 2010.
Le Vell, whose real name is Michael Turner, is on bail on condition he surrenders his passport, does not contact named witnesses and does not have unsupervised contact with any child under the age of 14.
He has not yet entered a plea but has stated publicly he is innocent and will fight the allegations through the courts.
The father-of-two split from wife Jeanette Beverley, who also appeared in the soap, around two years ago after 25 years together.
He was first arrested in September 2011 and questioned over alleged child sex offences, but the matter was later dropped.
Earlier this year the Crown Prosecution Service said it was in the public interest to charge him with the current offences following a review of evidence.
