Coronation Street's Graeme Proctor will leave gorgeous girlfriend Tina McIntyre devastated when he admits he has fallen for her best friend Xin Chiang
Coronation Street's Graeme Proctor is to deliver a brutal hammer blow to girlfriend Tina McIntyre when he falls for her best friend.
The bumbling butcher - played by Craig Gazey - will leave the brunette bombshell devastated when he tells her he is leaving Weatherfield for good to start a new life with her best friend Xin Chiang (Elizabeth Tan).
While Graeme was originally pressured by Tina (Michelle Keegan) into marrying Xin to guarantee her a visa to stay in the country, viewers will see his feelings grow increasingly genuine for the Chinese beauty.
However, when Xin announces she is going to leave the cobbles so Graeme and Tina can be a proper couple again, he realises he can't bear the thought of her not being in his life and the pair share a passionate smooch.
Xin tells him: "Tina's my best friend and I can't deceive her. I'll give you till tomorrow to decide whether it's Tina or me."
Unfortunately, Graeme doesn't get the opportunity to think for too long about his true feelings when his gorgeous girlfriend walks in and is devastated to find the pair locking lips.
The butcher tells Tina: "I'm ¬sorry Tina, but Xin and I love each other and want to be together forever."
Feisty Tina is determined to get her revenge on the cheating couple and as well as threatening to tell the authorities about their faux romance, sets out to bed new Weatherfield womaniser Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain).
A 'Corrie' insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "When Tina learns what is going on she will be left seething and out for revenge. If she tells the authorities the truth it will send Graeme back to prison and he is left with no choice but to flee the street with Xin."
