Michelle Keegan will make a cameo in 'Coronation Street' tonight (23.06.14) as viewers are treated to previously unaired footage filmed before she quit the show
Michelle Keegan is to make one last appearance in 'Coronation Street' tonight (23.06.14).
While the 27-year-old beauty's soap alter-ego Tina McIntyre was killed off last month, the beloved character will feature in a brand new scene that was filmed before she quit the show.
As the residents of Weatherfield attend Tina's funeral in tonight's episode, the barmaid's grieving housemate Steph Britton (Tisha Merry) opts to stay home and relive some of her favourite memories of her murdered pal.
A teary-eyed Steph watches a video clip of the flatmates dancing around the house to S Club 7's 'Reach' before a night out.
The full clip, which was the last scene filmed by Michelle before her departure in May, will then be made available on the official 'Coronation Street' website.
Tina's murderer Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis), meanwhile, is determined to pin her death on his rival Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) as the two come to blows at her funeral.
Rob is enraged when Peter tries to talk to his estranged wife, Rob's sister Carla (Alison King), following his affair with Tina prior to her death.
Marc previously said of the scenes: "He wants Peter arrested and charged with killing Tina. He knows Peter is already the main suspect in the murder investigation and once the police have got their man, the pressure will be off.
"It's totally justified in his mind. He genuinely feels that although Peter didn't commit the actual murder, if he hadn't had the affair and started drinking again, Tina wouldn't be dead."
