20th April1977: After a long and troublesome courtship, Len Fairclough and Rita Littlewood finally tied the knot when they were married at St. Mary's Church. The two had met five years before and had been briefly engaged in 1974 but Rita couldn't get Len to commit to a wedding date and called it off. She had had several other romances during the time but it was only when he was faced with losing her as she made plans to move to Tenerife that he proposed again and this time carried his promise through to a wedding ceremony. The problems didn't end there though as Len got drunk on his stag night and hurt his ankle falling down the stairs and then his car wouldn't start to take him to the church, causing Rita to worry that no wedding would take place. In the end, all went well and the honeymoon was also in Tenerife.
Kylie Platt is the wife of David and mother of Max and Lily Platt. Kylie was raised by a drug addict mother and abusive father. She resented her half-sister Becky Granger for leaving home when Kylie was eight, and was thrown out after falling pregnant at nineteen. Max's dad, Callum Logan, ended up in prison, and Max was taken into care as Kylie was homeless. In 2010, Becky tracked Kylie down and helped her regain custody of Max, but fearing she couldn't hack it as a mother, Kylie sold Max to Becky and Steve McDonald and left. She made a surprise return to Weatherfield the following year after meeting and getting engaged to David Platt in Tenerife, where she was working as a cage dancer. After getting married, the Platts won custody of Max and in 2013 Kylie gave birth to their daughter Lily - although there was uncertainty over her parentage due to a one-night stand between Kylie and Nick Tilsley. Arriving in the Street as an opportunistic thief, Kylie frequently pushed David to get what he could from his family - including Audrey Roberts's salon where they both worked - but matured as she was accepted into the Platt clan.
