It's been a busy few weeks for Michelle, who recently exited Coronation Street after six years, when character Tina was killed off. The soap actress admitted that she was initially surprised when she found out Tina would be written out of the soap for good.
"I was shocked," said Michelle Keegan . "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."
"I do completely understand why she's being killed though," she added. "It's an amazing storyline and it will affect so many characters on the Street for the next year."
The gorgeous brunette paid tribute to her alter ego on Twitter, with a photo montage of Tina, including her trademark large hoop earrings.
