There's a wonderful article over at Lowculture written by @rudemrlang on twitter.
The article summarises nearly all of Rita's different hairdos and colours over the years.
Rita's red hair from when she first appeared in Corrie in 1972 all the way through the current episode are highlighted - and backcombed - in the wonderful blog.
It's well worth a look and it's here.
