Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan has elaborated on her departure from the soap – and what will become of her character Tina McIntyre.
Keegan also revealed that she knew which character was responsible for doing the dirty deed – but remained tight-lipped. ‘I’m not telling anyone,’ she insisted.
The soap babe – who is engaged to former TOWIE star Mark Wright – announced in April she was quitting the soap, with her character due to make her final appearances next Spring.
However her demise is likely to upset her die-hard fans, as it means the door won’t be left open for her to make a return to the cobbles in the future.
‘They’ve been weighing up whether to kill Tina off and now believe it’s the way to get maximum ratings,’ a source told The Sun.
