Viewers know Rita Tanner, aka Rita Sullivan, has been feeling lonely recently but tonight she's thrilled when she bumps into old friend Norris and he agrees to pop in for a cup of tea.

Norris actor Malcolm Hebden suffered a heart attack in December 2017 and took leave from the show for over a year.

While Malcolm recovered, his character was in Edinburgh visiting friend Emily and her niece Freda, who he soon got engaged to.

He made a return in April of this year to sell No.3 and ask wife Mary to sign divorce papers.

Norris made a brief return in October this year for Ken Barlow's 80th birthday.
