Coronation Street Past And Present Wiki


Edward John Sullivan, aka Ted Sullivan was a character in Coronation Street in 1992. He was the second husband of Rita Fairclough. He first appeared in Ep 3347 - 19 Feb 1992. Ted died in Ep 3435 - 9 Sep 1992 of a brain tumour shortly after he married Rita. Ted was played by William Russell.




Ted married Rita but their marriage was short lived as Ted died in September 1992 during a bowls match where Percy Sugden was playing.


Rita retained the surname Sullivan until she wed her old work colleague Dennis Tanner in 2012.

In February 2021, almost 30 years after Ted died, Rita mentioned Ted when she said how he died while she watched Percy Sugden playing bowls.
