When Flaming Nora blogged about Michelle Keegan's announcement the other day I can't say I was shocked and stunned. I'm actually surprised she has stayed as long as she has. Tina is a bit of a Marmite character I guess, viewers either love her or loathe her. Michelle Keegan has always given it her all though and I do think she's done a good job. Like Sean, Michelle and Becky, the character of Tina has been a bit over-exposed and the surrogacy storyline has been less than popular in our house.
So the big question is, how will Tina leave Weatherfield? It would seem a certainty that her departure will involve something to do with the current surrogacy story, but will they manage to stretch this out until she leaves next year? I don't know if I can handle this storyline continuing until mid-2014!
We are already seeing signs of Gary Windass falling for Tina, currently carrying his child. We all knew when this started up that it would get messy as the powers that be want to string out as much drama as possible. All I can say is, poor Izzy!
So will Tina get together with Gary? Will Tina end up snatching the baby and fleeing Weatherfield? Will Tina and Tommy get back together again and make a fresh start away from the increasingly tiresome Windass family? Let's just hope Tina's departure doesn't involve a boat and Lake Windermere.
So how do you think Tina will leave Weatherfield's famous cobbled street?
