Michelle Keegan will film four alternate endings for her 'Coronation Street' character Tina McIntyre in a bid to keep her killer's identity secret
Michelle Keegan will film four different 'Coronation Street' murder storylines.
The actress is bowing out of the ITV soap in May and TV bosses are so determined to keep the identity of her character Tina McIntyre's killer a secret, Michelle is having to film alternate endings to keep fans guessing.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Bosses are keen for Tina's murder to be the soap's next big dramatic storyline following the suicide of Hayley Cropper.
"But they are insistent that who kills her must remain a secret and so they've hatched a plan to film Tina being murdered four times by four different characters. Michelle will have to go through Tina's death on four occasions, which will be emotional for her."
Those likely to be in the frame as Tina's killer are alcoholic Peter Barlow, with whom the barmaid had an affair, his wife Carla, Rob Donovan, who is Carla's brother, and previously convicted murderer Tracy Barlow, who is Rob's girlfriend.
Following the news of Michelle's departure after seven years in Weatherfield, it was announced that Chris Gascoyne, who plays Peter, is expected to leave at the end of the year, and now it seems Marc Bayliss, who plays Rob, could also be leaving once the dramatic plot comes to an end.
