Michelle Keegan on leaving Coronation Street: 'I won't miss Tina's style!'

Michelle Keegan only has four weeks left until she leaves Coronation Street for good, and the star has exclusively revealed that she's "really excited" about her departure. More importantly, she can't wait to ditch her character Tina McIntyre's style.

"I can't wait! She hasn't got the best style in the world has she? She's a bit chavvy and dresses down a lot. Every time I see a new outfit, I just think 'I don't care – it's not me, it's Tina, bless her!' and put it on," Michelle told HELLO! Online ahead of the launch of her highly-anticipated new fashion and beauty blog.

The gorgeous brunette, who has played Tina for six years, will have her character killed off and revealed she still doesn't know the identity of the murderer.

"I read the script for my final scenes but I don't know who the murderer is. I don't think they will tell me until the last minute, it's out of a few people. I keep asking people what the answer is but nobody will tell me!", she confessed.

"Everyone knows Tina is going; it's going to be an incredible, spectacular exit and it's going to take us right through autumn and December. It's going to be massive."
