Her affair with married man Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) began in 2013 - on the day he married Carla.

At one point they planned to run away together to Portsmouth, but Peter backed out when he discovered that Carla was pregnant.

How did Tina McIntyre die in Coronation Street?

Tina McIntyre was murdered by Carla's brother Rob Donovan in 2014.

At the time, Rob was in a relationship with Tracy Barlow and Tina had threatened to tell the police about their dodgy business dealings with Barlow's Buys.

He killed the much-loved character by pushing her off a balcony in the Builder's Yard.

Shockingly, after she survived the fall, Rob beat her with a metal pole and she later died in hospital after having surgery to reduce the swelling on her brain.

Rob tried to frame Peter for Tina's murder and he was sentenced to life imprisonment, but after Carla told the police the truth, Rob fled Weatherfield before finally giving himself up to the police.

A month later, he was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment.
