'Coronation Street's Tina McIntyre is desperate for a baby.
The stunning barmaid - played by Michelle Keegan - will discover she's pregnant next week following a passionate affair with married man Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne).
However, before she takes the tests, Tina, who was a surrogate mother for Gary Windass (Mikey North) and
Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston) last year, is praying the result will come back positive as she' hoping the recovering alcoholic will leave his wife Carla (Alison King) for her.
Michelle said: "She really wants the test to be positive. She hasn't got over the pain of giving her baby to Gary and Izzy and would love another child.
"Peter will have to leave Carla if Tina is pregnant. She knows he's messing her around and being pregnant could change everything. Tina wants to be with Peter and would love them to have a family together.
"I want the test to be negative, though. It's not the right path for her to go down."
Meanwhile, Michelle admits she's shocked by her alter-ego's recent behaviour.
She explained to the TV Times magazine: "I read the scripts and think, 'Stop!' The worst thing for me is that Tina and Carla are friends and I don't think she'd ever do that to her. Tina's personality has changed and I think it's because of everything that's happened to her."
Michelle will bow out of the soap in May when her character is murdered by a fellow Weatherfield resident.
