It’s been revealed today that surrogate mum Tina McIntyre is set to go into labour – weeks too early – in the newly refurbished Rovers!
Tina, who is of course played by soon-to-be departing actress Michelle Keegan, will begin to experience contractions as she’s working behind the bar of the pub, which is of course set to reopen once it’s been refurbished following the killer blaze that was started by spurned lover Karl Munro (John Michie).
However, it seems that though the baby boy – who is the biological son of Gary Windass (Mikey North) and his girlfriend Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston) – arrives early, after a scare about him being underweight, he’s going to be fine and will be named Jake by his doting mum and dad.

But the more Michelle protested that the picture wasn’t of her ample bosom, the more people began to assume the lady doth protest. And the whole debacle prompted her Corrie co-star Alan Halsall – who plays Tyrone Dobbs – to post a series of wisecracks along with images of fat men in tubs… Read more & comment »

And somewhat shockingly, Michelle Keegan, who of course plays Tina, has revealed that when her character tells Izzy about Tommy’s request, she’ll be supportive of Tommy (Chris Fountain) and will tell Tina that if she does decide to terminate the pregnancy, she and Gary will “just start again with someone else!”

As fans of Coronation Street will know, Tina McIntyre is pregnant with Gary Windass (Mikey North) and Izzy Armstrong’s (Cherlyee Houston) baby…
And yesterday, Michelle Keegan who of course plays Tina, posted a picture to Twitter of her baby bump, because of course, while we viewers have only just learned that Tina’s pregnant, the cast of the show film six weeks in advance of the episodes airing, so Tina’s in the first stages of her bump!
Posting the pic, Michelle added, “Have i eaten all the pies?? Nope it’s the first day with Tina’s baby bump!!”

Michelle Keegan, who of course plays Tina McIntyre, has revealed to All About Soap magazine that Tina’s boyfriend Tommy Duckworth is going to leave her character desperately upset when he tries to convince her to abort Gary and Izzy’s baby…
Tina is of course pregnant with the couple’s baby following a procedure to implant their fertilized egg into Tina’s womb…
However, I can’t help but wonder if we’re set to see a big twist in which it turns out that the baby is in fact Tina and Tommy’s! Remember right before she had the eggs implanted? Tommy and Tina had had yet another row then there was the intimation that they’d made up via a trip to the bedroom?
That is of course just my own theory based on years of watching soaps! It’s not like I have any insider knowledge or anything… Read more & comment »
