Coronation Street had fans giggling tonight (August 29) at the suggestion that a guest character was the spitting image of long-departed (read: dead) Tina McIntyre.
The ‘lookalike’ appeared as part of Carla Connor’s plan to test her co-worker and ex-husband Peter Barlow. She saw the photo of an applicant for a machinist job online and, realising the ‘resemblance’, decided to invite Peter along for the interviews.
As Carla watched Peter interview Not-Tina, there seemed to be some sexual tension between the two (she even showed him her knickers!), but in the end he decided not to hire her because of “how much (she) looked like a Mediterranean version of Tina” and he’s a “better man now”.
While it made for some good scenes between Peter and Carla, the whole thing had us all going ‘really, though?’:
Peter passed Carla’s test and proved to her that he can be trusted as a business partner, but obviously the return of Nick Tilsley may (read: probably will) throw a spanner in the works.
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
