Happy Birthday to Barbara Knox

Today, September 30th is Barbara Knox's birthday. She's a Coronation Street legend and a star in every sense of the word.

How old is she? Well, for a lady of a certain age, it might be rude to reveal it publicly. But if you'd like to know the year she was born, it's here.

Barbara first appeared in one episode of Corrie as exotic dancer Rita Littlewood in 1964, returning in 1972 as Rita Bates, common-law-wife of violent Harry Bates, who looked after his two children, Terry and Gail. After a short break she returned and has been playing Rita ever since.

Happy Birthday Barbara!

You know, Even though Eileen Derbyshire has been with the show longer, Barbara really does feel more like the current reigning Queen of the Street.

Happy Birthday Barbara, and many, many Returns!

From the current cast, Rita is my favourite character.
