Robert Lee on Coronation Street's Tina's demise

As Coronation Street's Tina McIntyre meets a sticky end in tonight's show, Robert Lee looks at what might happen to her estate on our Sud's Law blog.

In Coronation Street tonight, events come to a head. Robert Lee from our private client department has more...

"Tina McIntyre first burst onto our screens in Coronation Street back in 2008 as we saw her attempt to book an appointment for an STI Test at Weatherfield Medical Centre – a classy entrance if ever there was one.

In the six years that followed Tina lurched from one disaster to another including – the abortion of David Platt’s baby, committing Perjury, the death of her father Joe – following his failed attempt to fake his own death, and offering her services as a surrogate mother to Izzy Armstrong and Gary Windass.

Tina has always had questionable taste when it came to men. Over the years she found time to conduct relationships with David Platt, hapless window cleaner Graeme Proctor, Tommy Duckworth, Dr. Matt Carter, Jason Grimshaw and the final, fatal attraction to married ex-mariner Peter Barlow.

Tina was deceiving herself if she thought that Bigamist Barlow was ever going to give up pregnant wife Carla and sail off into a Portsmouth sunset with her. Alcoholic Peter knows what side his bread is buttered on and strung poor Tina along for months on end.

The revelation of Carla’s pregnancy finally made Tina see Peter for the ‘Love Rat’ that he is and vowed to tell Carla of her husbands infidelity.

Desperate for his sisters happiness not to be dashed and the more pressing matter of some dodgy hairdryers, Carla’s brother Rob Donovan snapped and pushed Tina off the Builders Yard balcony.

A fall from that height would finish most of us mere mortals off but not Terminator Tina, who rose like Lazarus for one last showdown with Weatherfield’s King of ‘quality knock off goods’ culminating in her slow demise courtesy of an iron bar."
