Coronation Street's Tina McIntyre drowns her sorrows in booze after handing over baby Jake.
The brunette barmaid - who is played by Michelle Keegan - vowed to keep the little one after acting as a surrogate mother to Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston) and Gary Windass (Mikey North), but after the emotional U-turn last night (24.06.13), the barmaid will turn to the bottle.
Michelle - who recently announced she is quitting her role as Tina after six years in the ITV soap - was spotted filming scenes in a Manchester park in which Tina was swigging neat vodka.
Tina is then confronted by a gang of youths who ask her for some alcohol and she threatens to hit them if they don't leave her alone.
Meanwhile, Michelle reportedly had a bust-up with boyfriend Mark Wright - who she has been dating since November - at the weekend while celebrating her 26th birthday.
The couple were spotted bickering in the middle of packed nightclub Dstrkt in London's Piccadilly, and the actress was said to be "annoyed" that the former 'The Only Way is Essex' hunk was flirting with other girls.
A source told The Daily Star newspaper: "Michelle and Mark were extremely lovey-dovey at first.
"But when the fans spotted them, they made a beeline for Mark. Michelle was very patient at first but then she started to get really annoyed. He had women drooling all over him.
"He seemed to be loving all the attention. Michelle had words with Mark but he was not having it. He just walked away, leaving her to mope around.
"When he returned he sat with his back turned to her and just carried on chatting to his mates instead. They didn't stay long after this and left around 3am."
