ITV to show 'Farewell Tina' special programme

There's going to be a special 'Farewell Tina' programme on ITV to be screened on Friday 6 June at 8pm for one hour. 

The documentary tells the story of Michelle Keegan, the Salford-born girl who rose to stardom playing the feisty, funny and fallible Tina McIntyre, as she says goodbye to Coronation Street after six eventful years.

With contributions from fellow cast members including Jack P Shepherd and Helen Worth, the programme reveals the off-screen stories behind the dramatic on-screen plotlines.

There’s also chance to see home video footage of Michelle growing up, along with a never before broadcast  performance of her playing Sporty Spice in a school production.

For the first time ever Michelle watches her original Coronation Street audition tape from 2007, where she acted alongside Jack P Shepherd who plays David Platt.

Michelle’s Mum and Dad reveal that she was a plain but rebellious teenager, very similar to the character of Tina McIntyre that she would go on to play. They also reveal how the emotional plot of Tina’s father dying on screen affected them as a family – and Michelle’s home life.

The programme also has unprecedented access behind the scenes alongside Michelle as she films her final dramatic scenes – all watched by Michelle’s fiancĂ©, TV star Mark Wright.

Features contributions from cast members Jack P. Shepherd, Chris Gascoyne, Beverley Callard, Helen Worth, Ryan Thomas, and Paula Lane.
