Barbara Knox: Corrie keeps me young

Digital Spy has a few comments from Coronation Street legend Barbara Knox as she approaches a rather special birthday at the end of this month.

It is always lovely to hear from Barbara as she very rarely gives interviews. I love that she very obviously still enjoys the challenge of appearing in Corrie. I hope she realises what a real favourite she is for so many of us fans.

I wonder if ITV have anything special planned to mark Ms Knox's birthday later this month? Fingers crossed, as I'd love to see a special programme dedicated to both the character and the actress who plays her.

What a lovely woman. In real life she's as charming as Rita, I've met her. I hope that they do something special for her too, but I believe she already turned the big one in Feb. on the show a little ahead of her Sept. 30 real bday.
Glad she's still doing good work on Corrie, she's one of the special ones for sure.

I think it's lovely that 'Rita's' still a very consistent presence on the street.
With 'Betty' gone, and 'Blanche' and 'Emily' seen infrequently, there are not many of the older generation left.

Rita turned 80 in February 2012, while Barbara is 80 this month.

She looks fab for her age. :D

Blanche died ages ago.
