Corrie airs Tina McIntyre death twist
Coronation Street's Rob Donovan hit Tina McIntyre over the head with a metal pipe on last night's episode (28.05.14) following her fall from a balcony
Coronation Street's Rob Donovan hit Tina McIntyre over the head with a metal pipe in a surprise twist last night (28.05.14).
Audiences saw Michelle Keegan's character appear to fall to her death after plunging from a balcony during a scuffle in Tuesday's episode (27.05.14), but in a dark twist, the seedy character attempted to silence Tina once and for all with a weapon.
Although Rob (Marc Baylis) offered to call an ambulance for Tina after her fall, the brassy barmaid - who survived the plunge - threatened to tell the police that he had deliberately pushed her, which lead to his frenzied attack.
Tina has now been left fighting for her life in hospital, but she tragically dies in next Monday's double bill (02.06.14) as doctors are unable to save her.
Michelle - who is engaged to former 'The Only Way Is Essex' hunk Mark Wright - has bowed out of the ITV soap after six years playing the the stunning soap favourite and she previously revealed she would be watching her last ever scenes from the comfort of her dad's house.
She said: "That's where I watched the episode when I was first on, so I'm going to watch the last episode with him. It'll be quite emotional."
