HELLO! Online blogger, 26, has admitted she was surprised when producers told her Tina would be written out of the soap for good.
"I was shocked," she said. "Initially we thought that the door would be left open for her, which I think is every actor's ideal scenario.
Characters Peter, Carla, Tracey and Rob have been identified as potential killers, but whodunnit?
"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.
"I do completely understand why she's being killed though — it's an amazing storyline and it will affect so many characters on the Street for the next year."
