Michelle Keegan will leave Coronation Street in 2014, after six years of playing Tina McIntyre. Michelle will be on screen for a further 12 months until late spring of next year. Work will begin in the next few weeks on devising an exit storyline for her character. The next 12 months promises to be an exciting one for the character of Tina McIntyre starting next month with the dramatic early birth of the surrogate child she is carrying.
Coronation Street Producer Stuart Blackburn said: ’’There is more than a year of drama to come for Tina McIntyre before we bid farewell to Michelle and plans are already being made for what will be a powerful and gripping story. We will be sorry to see Michelle go but wish her every success for the future.”
