Ted Carroll (died 1998) appeared in two roles in Coronation Street: as Andrew McPriest, a thug employed by Dave Smith in September 1971, and as a Lorry Driver delivering baths to Fairclough and Langton's yard in May 1978.

A professional boxer in his youth, he served as a "Desert Rat" in the Second World War where he successfully played in an impromptu game of rugby league and as a result was signed up by Hunslet Parkside after the conflict was over. His sporting career resulted in a unique-looking broken nose which gained him many a part as a heavy when he took up acting.

He also appeared in Doomwatch, Man at the Top, The Flaxton Boys, Follyfoot, Sam, The Evacuees (written by Jack Rosenthal), Days of Hope, Emmerdale Farm, The XYY Man, Rosie, I Didn't Know You Cared, Flambards, Worzel Gummidge, Juliet Bravo, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, All Creatures Great and Small and Wish Me Luck.

On film, he was in Kes, Dracula and Flash Gordon. He and his wife Beryl ran the Rose and Crown pub in Ilkley for many years.
