Coronation Street Past And Present Wiki

Tina McIntyre was a character in Coronation Street who first appeared in January 2008. She has been romantically involved with bad boy David Platt and she mellowed him. Tina was a surrogate mother to Izzy Armstrong and Gary Windass. Tina knew about Rob Donovan's dodgy dealings. When she would not reason with him he bludgeoned her to death with a metal pole. Tina was played by Michelle Keegan.



Tina was born to Joe and Ann McIntyre in February 1991. When she was young her parents split up, and she remained living with her mother, although she would still see her father.


Tina turned up at the medical center with an injured forearm after smashing it on someone's window, and got into a confrontation with the receptionist Gail Platt. Tina later got with Gail's son David Platt and became his first girlfriend, and he lost his virginity to her. Tina ended up pregnant with the baby and wasn't ready to be a mother. Gail was supportive to Tina, and took her to get an abortion, leaving David's oblivious. David later found out about what Tina had done and after an angry confrontation with his mother, pushed her down the stairs.

Although Gail survived and offered to cover up what David had done, David instead chose to go on a rampage smashing up his street in order to get himself arrested and charged, and spent sometime in the young offenders. Although Tina had temporarily split up from him, they reconciled and she moved out of her mum's and in with Gail and awaited David's return home. Tina's mother didn't approve and came round to collect Tina, but she refused and remained where she was.

After David's release, Tina temporarily split from him again after discovering that he got access to her emails, suspicious that she was having an affair with her ex-boyfriend. The pair reconciled once again.

Behind the Scenes[]

  • Tina McIntyre was brought in as the girlfriend for bad boy David Platt in 2008. The character was only intended to stick around for a short time, but Michelle Keegan impressed producers that they decided to keep her on in the show, and she went on to become one of the popular characters with the fans.
  • In 2013 Keegan quit the role after five years. Although intending to leave later in the year in which the door would have been left open, she was convinced to stay on until 2014 which would lead to the character being killed off in a whodunnit plot. Keegan agreed, and Tina was involved in an affair with Peter Barlow in a build up to her death. Her attack occurred in May 2014, and Tina passed away the following month. Keegan's last appearance was in mobile footage as the character in late June 2014.
