Rita and Me to air on New Year's Eve

The Coronation Street documentary Rita and Me will air on New Year's Eve on ITV at 8pm for one hour.  It'll be repeated on New Year's Day at 6.45pm on ITV.

It's half a century since Barbara Knox first brought Coronation Street's red-haired Rita so vividly to life and she's been one of the most popular characters ever since. She's certainly my favourite female on Corrie.  Barbara looks back on her career as well as the role that has brought her such acclaim.

In the programme, Barbara is given a surprise by Paul O'Grady on the Corrie set.

Should be a real treat.

As its a Corrie documentary no doubt they will find a way to throw in the over played clip of Ken pinning Dierdrie against the wall in 1983 complete with Anne Kirkbride reminding us that this wasn't rehearsed.

Since she was Rita's last 'daughter',I bet that somehow the special will become all about Tina and how according to Rita she was loved by all.
