Coronation Street's Rita Sullivan and Dennis Tanner are set to wed and could tie the knot this summer
Coronation Street's Rita Sullivan and Dennis Tanner are set to wed.
The redheaded Kabin worker (Barbara Knox) is currently romancing Dennis - widower of the legendary Elsie Tanner - and sources believe a wedding isn't far off.
A insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Don't rule out a summer wedding!
"It is the talk of the cast that Rita could become Mrs Tanner. Barbara, like Pat Phoenix, who played Elsie, is a legend and everyone thinks it would be a terrific move for Rita to get married again."
Philip Lowrie - who plays Dennis - recently said he loved working with Barbara as they have such a good time together on set.
He said: "I've rarely worked with an actress as fabulous as Barbara."
Rita bumped into Dennis last May and was shocked to see he had fallen on hard times and was living as a homeless person. She then brought him back to 'Coronation Street'.
The original Mrs. Tanner left Weatherfield in 1984 and Pat Phoenix, who played her, died two years later.
