Coronation Street actress Barbara Knox, 80, who plays Rita Tanner in the soap, was arrested this week on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, after reportedly driving to Knutsford police station in order to complain to officers who had previously arrested her daughter, Maxine Ashcroft, 56, also for driving under the influence of alcohol.

A Cheshire Police spokesperson said, “An 80-year-old woman from Knutsford arrived at Knutsford police station and was also arrested on suspicion of drink-driving. She was bailed pending further inquiries”, meanwhile a Coronation Street spokesperson said the arrest was a “personal matter”.
