‘The paintwork needs sorting out and the wing mirror is a write-off. Ryan doesn’t want any more drama with Tina and was left really shaken up by her actions.

‘But he wants her to right the wrong when it comes to the cost he was saddled with. This incident has caused a huge amount of tension but Ryan wants to move on.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Tina and Ryan for comment. 

The pair, who played couple Sarah Platt and Jason Grimshaw on Coronation Street, were an item for six years until 2009.

It comes after Ryan, 37, returned to social media on Sunday following the accusations. 

Ryan took to Instagram to share snaps from his son Roman’s second birthday and did not comment on the reports. 

Ryan appeared in good spirits as he joined his fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh and family and friends at the bash.

The actor presented the toddler with a birthday cake while he also shared snaps of Roman playing with his daughter Scarlett, 13, who he shares with Tina, in a ball pit.

Tensions between the pair are said to have boiled over last weekend after Tina had spent the evening with pals, with the motor’s wing mirror allegedly smashed off and the paintwork scratched.

A source told The Sun: ‘Ryan and Tina have a fractious relationship. They are not on good terms and that tension boiled over.

‘Tina, who was at a pal’s house party, came out into the street to meet him as he drove up. Soon after that his car was damaged with the baseball bat.

‘It was quite a disturbing incident and Ryan drove away as soon as he could. They’ve not spoken since and Ryan is furious.’

Another source added that Tina and Ryan hardly speak anymore and the ‘fragile thread’ on which their relationship was hanging has snapped. 

Former Celebrity Big Brother winner Ryan, who is currently expecting his second child with reality star Lucy Mecklenburgh, 30, is said to have taken the car to be repaired the day after the alleged incident.

Tina and Ryan began dating in 2003 after she split from fellow Coronation Street cast member Bruno Langley.

But the pair split in 2009, with Tina saying at the time: ‘He said he didn’t love me any more. Those were his words. I was devastated.’

Tina went on to find love with husband Adam Crofts who she married on New Year’s Eve in 2018.

Ryan met his current partner Lucy while filming Bear Grylls’ Celebrity Island in 2017, a year after he left Coronation Street.

The couple got engaged in 2019 and they welcomed their first child together, son Roman, in March the following year.

And Lucy, who is set to welcome their second child later this spring, said she can’t wait to give birth to the new addition to their family.

‘We can’t wait,’ the 30-year-old former TOWIE star told HELLO! magazine. ‘I had an inkling that I was having a girl, but I was a bit more unsure than with Roman.

‘With him I just knew – I don’t know why but even before we found out, I said, ‘I know, one hundred per cent, it’s a boy.”
