The iconic actor, who plays long standing Ken Barlow on the Street, said he has often used a pet psychic to better understand his Jack Russell dogs, Poppy and Harry.
"Animals are very telepathic," he said.
"With dogs, you know when they look at you that there is something going on. They follow you; they know what you're doing, so I want to understand my dogs better."
To help with his mission William turned to pet psychic Jackie Weaver.
"Jackie came and spoke with the dogs, after she left we understood our dogs so much better, it was so helpful," William explained.
Jackie claims reading what dogs are thinking is not a difficult process.
"Human psychics will read people, they'll pick up on their thoughts, and it's exactly the same with animals," she said.
"It's on a wavelength sort of like a mobile phone and you can tune in and you can get information," she added.
