Rita and her girls on Coronation Street

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog November 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)

This week in Coronation Street, Rita asked Gemma to move in to live with her. An odd couple pairing indeed, and one to look forward to watching on screen.

But speaking of odd couples, is it just me, or is anyone else feeling a bit miffed that we haven't so far seen any scenes of Sean and Norris living together? A missed opportunity, I feel.

Anyway, as Gemma becomes the next young woman to be taken in under Rita's sequinned and perfumed wing, let's have a look at the others who've got cosy on her soft furnishings over the years.

Sharon Gaskell. Rita and Len took in foster child Sharon in 1982.  Sharon returned to Corrie, and to Rita.

Jenny Bradley was another rover who returned to Rita. And, I wonder if Gemma moving in means that Jenny will be moving out - perhaps in with Johnny?

And while Sally never lived with Rita (as far as I know, but do correct me if I'm wrong), Rita was always there as a mother-figure for Sally, especially after Sally's own mother passed away.

Our blogger Tvor reminds me that Rita also took in Tina McIntyre.
 But, by 'eck lady, you don't want to be dipping into Rita's biscuit box without asking first.

So Rita and Gemma might just be a match made in Corrie heaven. We'll have to wait and see!
