New footage of Michelle Keegan to air on Coronation Street

23 JUNE 2014 Michelle Keegan's Coronation Street character Tina McIntyre tragically plunged to her death at the end of May but the long-suffering character will be back on Monday for one night only.

During the episode, fans will see Tina's friends and family attend her funeral - although best friend and flatmate Steph decides to stay home where she watches phone footage of the pair larking around.

Only a short clip will be shown during the episode but fans will have the chance to watch the scene in full by visiting the show's official website where it will be made available in its entirety.

The unshown footage was the last that Michelle Keegan filmed for the ITV soap.


Michelle, 26, counted down to her exit from the show by posting preview clips of her last episode on Twitter. "Who does it?" she wrote, asking followers to guess who her character's killer is alongside the hashtag "#whokillstina".

The soap actress admitted that she was surprised when producers told her Tina would be written out of the soap for good.

"I was shocked," said Michelle. "Initially we thought that the door would be left open for her, which I think is every actor's ideal scenario. A few months later, the producers came up with this amazing exit storyline for Tina — that she was going to be killed. My heart stopped when I first found out.

The HELLO! Online blogger watched Tina's final scenes with her millions of fans over Twitter. "It's an end of an era...Thank you to all you lovely people who changed my life, supported and made the last 6 and a half years so special..." wrote Michelle.

"..To you all I'm eternally grateful. Thank you to coronation street for putting me on the most amazing path and allowing me live my dream..."

"I'm going to miss Tina so much but a part of her will be with me forever... #byebyetina".

Engaged to The Only Is Essex's Mark Wright, HELLO! Online blogger has been looking forward to life after Tina but returned to the 2014 British Soap Awards only days before her final scene, where she was crowned Sexiest Female - marking the sixth year in a row the star has taken the title.
