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.’”
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.
