She's a woman scorned: Coronation Street's Tina McIntyre packs her bag and leaves the street... but is it for good?

It’s not been a quiet Christmas for the residents of Coronation Street and it doesn’t look to be getting any quieter as we see Tina McIntyre headed down the cobbles with a packed bag.

The star, played by super saucy northern lass Michelle Keegan, has become embroiled in an extra-marital affair (of sorts) with the street lothario Peter Barlow.

But with Peter lying to his soon-to-be wife Carla and Carla then confiding in Tina, is it all too much for the young barmaid?

In her green parka jacket, fur-lined boots dragging a bright pink suitcase down the street, Tina looks determined to leave the Weatherfield street for good in an episode of Coronation Street set to air on 8 January.

The show is preparing itself for the grisly murder of Michelle’s character Tina in the New Year, although it’s been revealed the character takes a short leave in January and later returns for the murder storyline.

Back on the cobbles, Tina’s spotted in a taxi crying just days after Peter’s stag do turns into a steamy evening for him and his 20-something lover – that is until they hear Roy coming up the stairs.

The next day, with Peter acting like nothing’s happened, Liz, Tina’s boss at the Rover’s Return, finds out her young employee has given her married lover an ultimatum and urges her to leave the street to make a clean break.

Former alcoholic Peter lied to his wife-to-be Carla about a meeting he’d missed, saying felt a pang of desperation to start drinking again and went to his support group.

Later, Carla confides in barmaid Tina about Peter's drinking – unwittingly guilt-tripping her into giving Peter an ultimatum, it’s either her or Carla.

But when Peter tells the barmaid he won't leave his wife-to-be, Tina is mortified and packs her bags to leave Weatherfield for good.

Speaking to Jonathan Ross on his chat show, Michelle said: ‘She’s [Tina] being killed - at first she wasn’t!

‘They came up with a really good storyline that involves a lot of characters – it’s going to be a really big storyline next year.’

the story line surrounding Tina has obviously been hashed together in a panic (and it shows), plus Tina seems to have undergone a personality transplant ..... It's the kind of story line that will be Corrie's downfall ..... way way too boring ....

Why do the writers and directors on Corrie keep asking women to wear gigantic earrings. It looks gross.
