“I thought about leaving when I was about 40,” he said. “I got a bit worried. There was a time when they tried to turn Ken nerdy, and I went to see the producer. But I haven’t considered it since.”
Speaking about Ken's future on the show, Bill says: “I can’t say what happens with Audrey, but it’s looking good.”
