OWEN Armstrong will threaten Tina McIntyre when she tries to back out of a surrogacy deal.
Fans know the babe, played by Michelle Keegan, 25, has agreed to carry the tot for Owen’s daughter Izzy for cash.
But we can reveal she will change her mind, sparking ugly scenes with Owen (Ian Puleston-Davies, 54).
He threatens to hurt her lover Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain, 25) if she doesn’t keep to the deal.
Owen leaves Tina, above, so scared she caves in. Poor Tommy, who has no idea about Owen’s threats, is thrilled Tina has promised to not go through with the pregnancy and turns to Rita Tanner for help. He tells Rita: “The only drawback is we’re going to have to pay Owen the money back and find somewhere else to live.”
Rita (Barbara Knox, 78) coughs up the cash and tells him: “It’s ridiculous. She’s so young – you both are. You don’t want to be messing up your life.
“You look after that little girl, make her happy and that will be the best investment I’ve ever made.”
But he is devastated when he finds Tina celebrating with Izzy (Cherylee Houston, 36) and her dad.
A show insider said: “Tina goes to the clinic behind his back. He’s distraught, but of course he doesn’t know she’s only doing it to protect him.”
