Corriepedia list her birthday as February 25th 1932 which means Rita turns 84 this year.
Rita Littlewood first turned up in Coronation Street as a nightclub singer in 1964. She returned in 1972.
Rita remains my all-time favourite Coronation Street character. Long may she reign and queen it over Norris in the Kabin.
