Last week, Corrie actress Barbara Knox, who plays Rita Tanner, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.  Today it's been announced that she has been charged and will appear in court.

From The Manchester Evening News:

The police spokesman said: "Police have charged an 80-year-old woman with drink driving following an incident in Knutsford on 10 March 2014.

"The woman turned up at Knutsford Police Station in relation to a separate matter and was arrested.
"Barbara Knox from Knutsford was charged on Friday 4 April 2014 and will appear at Macclesfield Magistrates on 24 April 2014."

The charge comes after Knox's daughter, Maxine Ashcroft, 56, was banned from driving for two years.
Ashcroft, of Lechlade, Gloucestershire, pleaded guilty to drink driving at Macclesfield Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.
