It’ll take more than a gang of muggers on the Red Rec to finish off Rita Tanner (Barbara Knox)…at least we hope so! After all, this is the woman who saw off Alan Bradley and survived being trapped under a ton of pick-and-mix during the tram crash…
But in scenes to be shown next week, Rita will find herself confronted by a nefarious-looking bunch intent on snatching her bag and phone. Rita has strayed from the cobbles to go in search of Tina (Michelle Keegan) who’s fled after her emotions bubble over at baby Jake’s homecoming party.
But Rita gets more than she bargained for when she’s surrounded by the hoodies who obviously think nothing of stealing from the Queen of the Street. Rita does manage to get a garbled phone message out to husband Dennis (Philip Lowrie) but will he be able to get to her in time? Find out in the episodes airing on Monday 12 and Wednesday 14 August.
