1976: Rita Finds Fame...

Len Fairclough chats up Rita Littlewood. Neither seem to have noticed the fact that Rita is appearing on the cover of the TV Times. Had her performances at the Gatsby led to an appearance on Sunday Night At The London Palladium?

Watching Coronation Street way back in 1976, I recall boggling at the sight of a copy of a TV Times magazine featuring Barbara Mullaney (now Knox) on the cover in the Kabin's magazine rack. It appeared there in several scenes, and kind of freaked me out!

Did the good people of Weatherfield watch Coronation Street on the telly like the rest of us, I wondered?
