For months fans have been trying to guess who is responsible for Tina's death, and now the killer has been unveiled as Rob Donovan!

Earlier in the show, Tina had walked into the Rovers Return and it quickly became obvious that Carla, married to the man she'd been having an affair with, was pregnant.

Tina was then followed home by Carla's brother Rob and, following an explosive row, fell 30ft of scaffolding onto the cobbles below. Tina is now in a coma, although the whole world knows she doesn't pull through. But who gets framed for her death?

Last night, Michelle took to Twitter after being inundated with messages from her Corrie friends, fans and loved ones. Hinting at tonight's 'big twist', she tweeted: "Thank you for all your lovely lovely comments about Corrie. It's all over ... Or IS it???... Tune in again tomorrow at 9pm @itv."

Corrie's Brooke Vincent was among those who had sent Michelle a kind tweet. She said: "Not going to lie... Proud of @michkeegan well done babe!!! Thanks for being my big sister for 6 years.. Love you xx."

Meanwhile, Michelle's fiancé Mark Wright also posted: "My @michkeegan proved tonight the unbelievable true talent she is. So proud of her. What a performance #corrie #actress #talent." Aw!
Earlier today, Marc Bayliss - who plays Rob - appeared on Good Morning Britain to talk about last night's show. The actor said it was a "relief" that the secret is out, as he's known about the storyline since November!

Marc also admitted that he had told his girlfriend that Rob killed Tina, as he "didn't want to bring the stress" of work home, but insisted he hadn't told anyone else - in case he got the sack!

Yesterday, it was confirmed that Michelle will star in a Corrie Farewell Tina documentary.
