Rita was introduced as a new love interest for Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) following his separation from Emily Kirk (Kate McGregor). [1] Kearney had undergone weight loss prior to securing the role of Rita. [1] She told Mike Glendenning of the Manchester Evening News : "I hadn't been to one of these groups before but when I got on the scales and saw the reading, I decided there and then that I was never getting that big again. I've never stuck to a diet before, but this isn't a diet, it's just a different way of living." [1] Speaking her character Rita, Kearnery said "Paddy, who has just split from Emily, has a night out with Marlon and brings her back home. I had a great craic doing it, Rita's very bubbly and energetic and I'm waiting to see if she'll become a recurring character." She added: "I'd always watched Emmerdale so this was pretty big for me, sitting in The Woolpack with the cast and crew, but they're an awful humble and lovely bunch of people, very kind and welcoming and it was really nice to be able to work on it." [1]

Rita meets Paddy on a night out and they go back to Smithy Cottage but they wake up Paddy's estranged wife Emily, which leads to an awkward encounter. Rita then leaves. The following year, Rita returns when she bumps into Paddy, Marlon, Donna Windsor-Dingle (Verity Rushworth) and Toni Daggert (Kerry Stacey. Rita recognises Marlon but he fails to recognise her but Paddy does, much to Toni's annoyance. Paddy and Rita reconect but when Toni is rejected, Paddy leaves Rita and takes Toni home.

Several months later, when Paddy takes a life drawing class, he is shocked when Rita is the nude model. Paddy later takes Rita for a drink in the Woolpack and she gives her number but fails to write it down and it is smudged, so he is unable to call her. When they meet at the class, Rita accepts it and they plan a date. However, a prank from the Dingle family leaves Paddy stuck in the middle of nowhere at the mercy of a charging bull. Rita rescues Paddy and they finally go on a date, which is almost cut short when Marlon's cab nearly runs over Rita. Paddy is able to save her in the nick of time. Rita begins praising Paddy heavily for saving her life and wants her parents, Jeff and Sue to meet him. Paddy is further annoyed when the Brannigans continually praise him and he snaps, which causes Sue to run off crying. Jeff tells Paddy that Rita's sister, Sally had been killed eight months earlier in a hit-and-run accident. Paddy tries to apologise but Rita refuses to listen.

Paddy, attempting to win Rita back, poses as a life model in one of her art classes and is successful. When Hari Prasad (John Nayagam), Paddy's partner in the vet practice begins embezzling money from the company accounts, Rita notices it but thinks it is a mistake. After Hari is remanded in custody and business suffers, Rita talks to Jasmine Thomas (Jenna-Louise Coleman amnd asks her to print an article in The Hotten Courier to reassure people about the vets. However, things backfire when Jasmine's boss, John McNally edits the article to point out the fraud and implicates Paddy.

Emmerdale has covered a number of storylines that created dispute and debate in the media and caused public outcry from viewers. A viewer poll conducted in January 2021 found that the top three storylines/episodes voted by viewers were the Emmerdale plane crash of 1993, the Storm of 2003 that occurred on around the 10th anniversary of the plane crash, and the Hotten Bypass Crash in 2016. Some storylines are seen as having caused controversy amongst viewers and in the media due to the sudden sacking of an actor by the programme's producer, or as a result of a topic or theme that openly shocked viewers or was seen as taboo.
