'Coronation Street': Michelle Keegan's Character, Tina McIntyre, Lies Motionless In The Street After Death Plunge (FIRST PICS)

The first pics of Tina McIntyre's final scenes in 'Coronation Street' have been released, which see the Rovers Return barmaid lying motionless on the street's famous cobbles.

Tina - played by Michelle Keegan - comes to a grisly end after plunging from a balcony following a dramatic showdown, launching a murder hunt that will grip Weatherfield.

She's given some home truths by one of four possible suspects before she crashes to the street in scenes that will air on ITV on Tuesday night.

In the build-up to the death, viewers of the ITV soap will have had the chance to watch four alternative showdowns between her and potential killers - Peter Barlow, Carla Barlow, Rob Donovan and Tracy Barlow - which are being made available on the official Coronation Street website.

ITV, who have released the photograph, say there will be a "shocking twist" on Wednesday, the night after her death plunge, just as the police begin their efforts to track down who is responsible.

In the coming months, the audience will see the killer desperately trying to cover their trail and evade justice.

William Hill bookmakers stopped taking bets on the ITV soap whodunnit yesterday at 9.46am after a "monster gamble" on rogue Tony Stewart from punters cut his odds from 100/1 to 2/1.

William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: "There was a real rush to back Tony - including a number of new account openings. We fully expect Tony to be unveiled as having done the dastardly deed!"

The odds on the killer are 4/6 for Rob Donovan, 2/1 Tony Stewart, 5/1 Peter Barlow, 10/1 Carla Barlow and 16/1 for Tracey Barlow.

Michelle Connor and Simon Barlow were at 25/1 to be named as the culprit while Owen Armstrong, Steve McDonald and David Platt were all at 33/1.
