Coro ex­press!

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - WEEKLY ENTERTAINMENT -

Af­ter much talk and de­bate, the big week is fi­nally here! From Mon­day night, TVNZ 1 is de­but­ing brand­new episodes of Corona­tion Street, ex­press from the UK.

The TV show has been a huge favourite with Ki­wis since it first started in 1964 and it still holds a spe­cial place in many peo­ple’s hearts – in­clud­ing the stars them­selves.

In a re­cent in­ter­view, beloved ac­tress Bar­bara Knox, who plays Rita on the soap, re­flected on her 54-year ca­reer on the show.

“I truly be­lieve you stay young if you can keep your brain oc­cu­pied, if you’re not sat at home,” says the 84-yearold. “I would like to keep work­ing. It’s mar­vel­lous, it’s stim­u­lat­ing. You do get fed up and tired, but at the end of the day, you’re like, ‘I’m glad

I did that.’”

CORONA­TION STREET

2018, TVNZ 1, SCREENS MON­DAY-FRI­DAY AT 9.30PM FOR THE FIRST WEEK, THEN WEDNESDAYFRIDAY. OLDER EPISODES PLAY MON­DAY-FRI­DAY ON TVNZ 1 AT 1PM.
