Coronation Street’s Barbara Knox to feature in documentary celebrating her 90th12th October 2023
Coronation Street’s Barbara Knox will be joined by actor and TV presenter Bradley Walsh in a one-off documentary celebrating her 90th birthday.
The soap star, who has played Rita Tanner continuously for more than half a century, will take a look back on the highlights from her career in theatre and TV, also showcasing memories and photos from her childhood and reflecting on the moment she was made an MBE in 2010.
Highlights of the programme will include appearances from fellow Corrie stars as well as a reunion with Thelma Barlow, who played Mavis Wilton for more than 25 years, and Malcolm Hebden, who played Norris Cole.
"Barbara Knox – A Gracious Lady" (bred by Rosen Tantau) was launched by Blue Diamond at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show 2023 to celebrate Barbara's very special 90th birthday, which will also feature in the documentary.
