Video: Coronation Street star Barbara Knox admits drink-driving

Coronation Street actress Barbara Knox has been banned from the wheel for one year after she admitted drink-driving. The 81-year-old, who plays Rita Tanner in the ITV soap, was caught over the limit after she drove to a police station to see her daughter who an hour earlier had been stopped for the same offence when the actress was a passenger. Knox, of Mere, Cheshire, was given "firm advice" not to get back into her car when officers at Knutsford police station noted she appeared to be intoxicated.
