Spoilers: Rita makes a devastating realisation in Corrie
Rita Tanner (Barbara Knox) comes to a startling realisation in Coronation Street in the coming episodes — and it’s one that leaves her incredibly upset as a result. Yes, as the festive season approaches, she gets excited about the prospect of visiting Emily Bishop (Eileen Derbyshire) in Edinburgh, but when her plan falls through, she realises that she doesn’t have many friends on the cobbles.
Rita remembers that she was asked to feed Mrs MacElroy’s cat in her absence, but — what with Rita planning on making a trip to Edinburgh to visit Emily soon — she’s forced to look for someone to help out with cat-feeding duties while she’s away.
However, the search doesn’t prove very effective, and ends up being rather fruitless as a result.
Later, Rita learns that Emily has twisted her ankle — and thus her trip to visit her has been cancelled. She opens up to Jenny (Sally Ann Matthews) about her cancelled trip, before claiming that her inability to find someone to help her out with the cat-feeding duties has made her realise that she’s got no friends.
It’s no wonder that Rita feels lonely, given that the Christmas period is approaching, and many of her old friends — such as Norris (Malcolm Hebden) and Emily no longer live on the cobbles.
However, there’s plenty of people who care for Rita — Jenny included.
Will Jenny be able to help Rita?
One to watch: Friday 6thDecember at 7:30pm on ITV.
