Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) is to quit Weatherfield in the coming weeks after she tires of being Peter Barlow’s other woman.
In scenes to be shown in early 2014, Tina is to issue Peter (Chris Gascoyne) with an ultimatum but will be left crushed when he tells her that he won’t leave Carla (Alison King).
After Liz (Beverley Callard) urges Tina to make a clean break from Peter, Tina packs her bags and decides to leave Weatherfield for good.
But it seems that this isn’t the last we’ll see of the Rovers barmaid. Back in November, Keegan admitted to interviewer Jonathan Ross that Tina is to be murdered in a high-profile whodunnit storyline:
“She’s getting killed. At first she wasn’t and then they came up with a really good storyline that involves a lot of characters on the street and it’s going to be a big storyline next year,” the actress revealed on the ITV chat show. “In a way, it’s an honour and I’m very excited for it.”
