Coronation Street’s Michelle Keegan tells Soaplife that it will kill Tina if Peter goes ahead and marries Carla… What? Literally?
Tina’s feelings for Peter seem to have come on rather suddenly…
“They didn’t really notice each other til Tina’s feud with Tracy, but there was a definite attraction then. Whenever Tina’s near Peter she feels completely out of control and even though she knows it’s wrong because of Carla, who Tina likes, she can’t help herself.”

Peter Barlow is no stranger to romantic complications, so you’d have to be very naïve to think that the preparations for his nuptials to Carla (Alison King) were going to be plain sailing. With Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) showing an interest in a vulnerable Simon (Alex Bain) and Carla seemingly more preoccupied by wedding dresses, it isn’t long before Peter’s attention starts to wander. But what will be Tina’s reaction when Peter confesses his feelings for her? Actor Chris Gascoyne fills us in on the web that is Peter’s love life:

Coronation Street stars Michelle Keegan and Chris Gascoyne tell TV Times magazine about the growing attraction between Peter and Tina.
What are Peter and Tina’s feelings for one another?
Michelle: “Peter had never come on to Tina’s radar before, but suddenly, she feels completely out of control. She has never felt like this about anyone before. She didn’t really have a passionate relationship with Tommy, but she can see herself having one with Peter.”
Chris: “Peter is really lustful for Tina. I think he almost sees a younger Carla in her somewhere. He found it really exciting when she put up a fight against Tracy. He admired her spirit and started to see her in a different light.”
Max George was branded a cheat after being pictured with a mystery girl whilst dating Michelle Keegan – but has revealed that they actually split three months before revealing it to the public, and their relationship broke down because he was drinking too much. Max opened up about his past relationships to The Sun and said of his split from Michelle, “Michelle had ended our relationship three months before anyone knew. I had a real problem with drinking too much and that was, without doubt, the downfall of our relationship. It made me a different person, even if I didn’t think it at the time.”
“I can’t even remember some of the two years I was with her because I was getting drunk every night. I was drinking more to forget the fact I was with someone who wasn’t making me happy. A picture of me was published with some blonde girl in a club in Newcastle. I wasn’t with Michelle at the time – it was actually two months after we split up. We didn’t tell anyone because she wanted to be able to get over it without anyone interfering. There was no betrayal in terms of cheating – but I made some bad decisions.”
Michelle took part in the ‘Birds of a Feather’ campaign for Asda’s ‘Tickled Pink’ initiative, which aims to raise money for charities Breast Cancer Campaign and Breast Cancer Care. Diana Vickers, Alexandra Burke, Kara Tointon and TOWIE’s Lydia Bright are also apart of the campaign. The ladies were dressed in gowns by fashion designer and Strictly Come Dancing contestant Julien Macdonald, featuring gorgeous feathers, beading and embellishment.
Keegan said: “I want to encourage everyone to do their bit to help raise as much money as possible for Asda’s ‘Tickled Pink’ campaign, which supports the fantastic and vital work of charities Breast Cancer Campaign and Breast Cancer Care. I really enjoyed taking part in the campaign, which has already made a huge difference to women affected by breast cancer, and I hope that it inspires people across the UK to join in and buy a Tickled Pink product to help raise much-needed funds.”
The stars also modeled T-shirts from a special ‘Tickled Pink’ range available at George at a starting price of £6. £1 from each sale will go to Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Campaign.

‘Coronation Street’s Tina McIntyre will have a Christmas fling with Peter Barlow. The beautiful bar maid has been embroiled in an on/off relationship with Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain) and is now looking to set her sights on the soap’s lothario (Chris Gascoyne), who is engaged to factory boss Carla Connor (Alison King). A source told The Sun newspaper: “This is the kind of ratings-winning storyline the soap needs. What better way for Tina to get over Tommy than for her to get to grips with another fella? Michelle is excited by the scripts and is looking forward to filming them.”
Tina’s love life has been in the limelight in recent months as she and Tommy split after the brunette beauty agreed to be a surrogate mother for Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston) and Gary Windass (Mikey North), but the pair rekindled their romance after the arrival of baby Jake. However after Chris Fountain recorded a vile rap which glorified rape the show’s producers were forced to continue without him and give his on-screen love a new storyline. Michelle, who joined the ITV soap in 2008, is leaving the show next year.
The beauty, who plays brassy barmaid Tina McIntyre in the soap, is planning a pie and mash party. Sexy Michelle, 26, is moving 250 miles to set up home with boyfriend and former TOWIE star Mark Wright when she leaves Weatherfield in May. But she has already started drawing up a list of ideas for her leaving do – and is determined to introduce her Manchester-based co-stars to proper East End nosh.
One cast colleague confided: “She keeps banging on about all this food that we’ve heard about but have never tried. I think most of us will be able to cope with pie and mash quite easily, but it’s the other bits and bobs which sound a bit worrying. Most of us here have never tried cockles or jellied eels so it’s going to be an interesting experience.”
Michelle insists her decision to quit the famous cobbles after six years does not have anything to do with dating 26-year-old Mark, who was the runner-up in the 2011 series of I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! “I didn’t decide to leave because of Mark. I’d actually been thinking about leaving on and off for a couple of years,” said Stockport-born Michelle. Corrie chiefs are leaving the door open for Michelle to return to the Street.

Tina is headed down a self-destructive path next week when she bottles up her emotions as baby Jake’s homecoming is held at the Rovers. After losing her cool, Tina has a vicious row with a mocking Tracy Barlow before heading off into the night. In an interview with Radio Times, Michelle reveals what’s in store as Tina’s evening goes from bad to worse.
So, Michelle, how hard do you think it was for Tina to give up baby Jake?
It was the hardest thing she’s ever had to do, but she’d finally come to a point where she knew she had to give him back to Izzy and Gary. She knew she was doing the right thing at that point, no matter how hard she knew it would be.
Will she always feel like Jake’s mum?
I don’t know whether she’ll feel like his mum for the rest of her life, but I do think Tina will always have a connection with Jake. There’s certainly a special bond that she feels she has with him that nobody else can understand.
Michelle has teased her many admirers with the admission that she wouldn’t rule out getting naked for an acting role – or even Playboy. But the ‘Coronation Street’ star says there’s one thing holding her back – her dad.
When she was asked if she’d ever strip for a role by The Mirror, she said: “I don’t know if I could because my dad might watch it, but if it was a good role, I might. The thought scares me, but if it’s not too graphic, I’d do it.”
And she also revealed she’d still consider posing in the buff for Playboy – as long as it was tasteful. “When I first started on Corrie, I’d have said yes to Playboy.” she admitted. “And now? Never say never, and it can look classy, but it’s the whole thing of sitting there thinking, ‘I’m actually naked’.”
But for now at least, it seems Michelle is keeping everything under wraps for her boyfriend, former ‘TOWIE’ star, Mark Wright, although she’s not about to admit if he’s ‘the one’.
Michelle is hoping to land a part on hit crime drama series Broadchurch. Producers are holding auditions for the new series and the actress, 26, wants in. An insider told Daily Star: “Michelle is keen for a gritty drama when she quits Coronation Street. Broadchurch is a top show. It has a huge audience and would allow her to play a more serious role. It’s likely she’ll get it as it’s on ITV and they don’t want to lose her when she leaves Corrie.”
