'Coronation Street' beauty Michelle Keegan has revealed she picked the song that will be played during Tina McIntyre's funeral on the soap
Michelle Keegan picked her own song for her 'Coronation Street' funeral.
The brunette beauty's character Tina McIntyre will meet a grisly end when she plunges off a balcony to her death after a scuffle with a mystery killer, and the actress admits it was strange helping to plan her alter-ego's funeral.
She said: "I'll still watch the show. I've been bought up on 'Corrie'. My family are still massive fans of it. It's going to be weird watching my own funeral. I've picked my own funeral song as well."
Michelle found herself washing off fake blood in the shower after filming the gory final scenes.
She explained: "I've had lots of blood in my hair. You have a shower and it's like your own death scene, because there's that much red. It's really weird. Very glamorous, I tell you!"
Michelle, who has been on the ITV soap for six-and-a-half years, plans on taking Tina's gold earrings with her when she leaves the soap to remember her time there.
She added to Britain's OK! magazine: "I'm taking her earrings. They used to be gold and now they're brown - they've gone through the times with me. And I will probably take a beer mat from the Rovers."
