Michelle says Tina’s happiness has made her happy

Coronation Street‘s Michelle Keegan says she looks and feels better in real life thanks to her new romance storyline.

Her character, Tina McIntyre, is soon to embark on a relationship with loveable Graeme Proctor (Craig Gazey), following months of grief over the death of her dad.

She told TV Times: “It’s good that Tina’s not crying for Joe any more. It’s great when you get a storyline like that but I was so tired.

“I got cold sores and was really run down – I think your body actually thinks it’s grieving. If you’re smiling, it thinks it’s happy, so with this storyline I’ve noticed a difference in how I think and feel.”

Meanwhile, Craig promised that viewers will see a vulnerable side to his Graeme, who will reveal he lost his virginity to his best friend’s mum and hasn’t had a girlfriend since year five in school.
