Michelle Keegan as Tina McIntyre

Michelle Keegan has revealed she is to have a "Tina shrine" dedicated to her dearly departed 'Coronation Street' character in her new home with Mark Wright

Michelle Keegan will have a "Tina shrine" in her new home.

The 'Coronation Street' beauty - whose character Tina McIntyre was killed off in May - has revealed plans to dedicate an area of her new home in Essex, which she will share with fiancé Mark Wright, to her soap alter-ego as a reminder of her six years on the show.

Speaking to Lucie Cave on heat radio, she said: "I have got loads of pictures from the past, with Chris Gascoyne [Peter Barlow] and more all stacked up ready to go into my new home. So I will be taking her with me - it will be a Tina shrine.

"I do miss Tina a lot, I do miss her and I do miss 'Corrie'. But it was just the right time for me [to leave]."

Michelle, 27, has already lined up her next acting role but is eager not to give away too many details.

She explained: "I want to continue acting just because it's something that I love to do and I have been auditioning again. I can't say too much because it's not 100 per cent signed, but there is a job in the pipeline."

The stunning actress has ruled out any plans to follow fellow soap stars Martine McCutcheon and Holly Valance into the music industry, however, as Michelle openly admits she's a terrible singer.

She said: "I'd love to be able to sing. That's the one thing I'd love to be able to do. When I'm drunk that's another thing that I do - overconfident, I get on the mic at karaoke and think I can sing like Celine Dion. I can't."
