But sadly, if the rumours are true, it looks like the door won't be left open for Michelle to return if she ever fancies popping back to the Street.

A source told The Sun: "They've been weighing up whether to kill Tina off and believe it is the best way to get maximum ratings.

"But Michelle's fans will be devastated as it means Tina will never be able to return."

Michelle made her first appearance on Coronation Street in 2008 and, since then, she has become a leading character.

But it seems Michelle - who is engaged to former TOWIE star Mark Wright - is ready for a change of scene.

It has been suggested that she will leave Manchester and move to Essex to be with Mark ahead of their wedding, which is rumoured to be taking place next year.

Exclted Michelle has also revealed that she hopes to squeeze in some travelling after Corrie and before she lands a new job.

In a recent interview, Michelle said: "I may also do some travelling as well if I get the time and the opportunity."
