'Coronation Street's Tina McIntyre is to get a new love interest, a hunky doctor played by Oliver Mellor
'Coronation Street's Tina McIntyre will recover from boyfriend Graeme Proctor's betrayal by hooking up with a hunky doctor.
The Rovers Return barmaid - played by Michelle Keegan - will be left devastated when Graeme (Craig Gazey) runs off with his sham spouse Xin (Elizabeth Tan), but the arrival of medic Dr. Matt Carter, set to be played by Oliver Mellor, is guaranteed to cheer Tina up.
With the pair embarking upon a steamy romance, all will be going swimmingly until a few skeletons from the dashing doctor's closet.
However, if their relationship doesn't work out Michelle already has other plans for her alter-ego.
She recently revealed she would love for Tina to hook up with ex-boyfriend David Platt (Jack P Shepherd), Weatherfield womaniser Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain) or Irish hunk Ciaran McCarthy - played by Boyzone singer Keith Duffy.
Michelle said: "I think it would be great if Tina got back with David - I love them together. Tina might have a go at Tommy - or Ciaran McCarthy when he's back on the Street."
