Coronation Street shop shock as Rita Tanner’s Kabin sold from under her

Coronation Street’s Rita Sullivan faces losing her beloved Kabin as she is ­betrayed by old friend Norris Cole.

And to make it worse, he flogs the shop to locals Brian Packham and Cathy Matthews.

On hearing the news Rita, played by Barbara Knox, 85, screams: “Get outta my Kabin!”

It was confirmed last month that Malcolm Hebdon,78, will return as fusspot Norris next year after suffering a heart attack. This is thought to be his comeback storyline.

A Corrie insider said: “Rita is the Kabin.

"She’s been behind that counter serving the residents of Weatherfield for decades.
