Corrie Spoiler! Bride Rita Sullivan will be kidnapped by Rick Whelan!
It was reported a few weeks ago that Coronation Street’s latest bride-to-be Rita Sullivan was set to be kidnapped on the day of her wedding to fiancé Dennis Tanner (Phillip Lowrie) and for ages, we’ve been speculating who would want to abduct Kabin owner Rita…
But now we know; she’ll be taken hostage by evil loan shark Rick Whelan (Greg Wood) and used as a bargaining tool when Tina McIntyre threatens to end Rick’s drug operation.
The storyline begins when Tina (Michelle Keegan) finally learns that her boyfriend Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain) is paying off his dad Terry’s debt to Rick by stashing drugs in the cars he services at the garage.
Rick’s cronies later retrieve the drugs and sell them, so brave Tina intercepts a shipment and removes them from the car before calling Rick and telling him to meet with her…
When he turns up, she tells him that she knows all about what’s been going on, and adds that she now has the drugs as evidence and will go to the police with what she knows unless Rick leaves Tommy alone.
However, the ever resourceful Rick knows how close Tina is to Rita (Barbara Knox) and so, having bundled an unsuspecting Rita into the boot of his car, he tells Tina he’ll drive the car into the canal unless she hands the drugs back.
