'Coronation Street's' Tina McIntyre "hates being the other woman" in her love triangle with Peter and Carla Barlow.
'Coronation Street's' Tina McIntyre "hates being the other woman".
Actress Michelle Keegan, whose character is embroiled in a love triangle with Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) and his wife Carla (Alison King), says her barmaid alter-ego is experiencing inner-turmoil over her actions of late.
She said: "She hates being the other woman - it's something Tina never thought she'd be. She doesn't want to betray Carla but her feelings for Peter override everything. Tina can't understand how he can be with her and then flit off to his wife. But he'd never leave Carla for her."
Tina is overcome with guilt as she continues her affair with her pal's husband, but Michelle admits the character is "blinded" by her lothario lover, who tells her he loves her in coming weeks.
The actress explained: "Peter knows it's what Tina wants to hear, and he's right. She's so blinded by love for Peter that she can't see him for what he is. he does care for her in a way but he loves his wife Carla, not Tina."
Carla will soon discover she's pregnant with Peter's baby and the news is sure to come as a blow to young Tina.
Michelle, 25, added to Inside Soap magazine: "Tina will be utterly devastated. She really wants a child and to find out that Peter wants another one, just not with her, will be a slap in the face."
