If the work dries up for Michelle Keegan after she leaves 'Coronation Street' next year there'll be no way for her to return to the cobbles as the soap's writers plan to kill off her character, Tina McIntyre.
Show bosses are reportedly planning a 'whodunnit' storyline, which they hope will get the nation guessing after Tina comes to a grisly end.
“It will set up a cliffhanger leaving viewers guessing who killed her. But Michelle’s fans will be devastated as it means Tina will never be able to return.”
The 26-year-old - who got engaged to 'TOWIE' star Mark Wright last month - announced she was leaving the ITV soap in April as she wanted to try her hand at new roles.
Earlier this month Michelle celebrated topping FHM's Hottest Woman on TV poll by stripping off for a new photoshoot with the magazine.
The 'Coronation Street' actress beat the likes of Hollyoaks' Jorgie Porter and 'The Inbetweeners' star Emily Atack to take the crown, notching up 22.3% of votes.
