We always pictured Michelle Keegan's Coronation Street character Tina McIntyre getting in her car and driving off into the sunset, destined to live happily ever after.

But according to new insider sources, Corrie bosses are planning to kill her off in a huge 'whodunnit' storyline. Gutted.

The big decision comes after a disappointing year of ratings that saw BBC One's EastEnders trump ITV's offerings. Now bosses are going to use Michelle's pre-planned Corrie exit to make a splash in a similar way to 'Who shot Phil Mitchell?' in 2001.

A source told The Sun. "They've been weighing up whether to kill Tina off and believe it is the best way to get maximum ratings. It will set up a cliffhanger leaving viewers guessing who killer her."

But will Michelle and the Corrie producers manage to beat these classic soap 'whodunnit' story-lines? Take a peek and remind yourself...

Who shot Phil Mitchell? EastEnders


Nasty Phil Mitchell was gunned down outside his house on 1 March 2001, but audiences didn't learn that it was Phil's ex-girlfriend Lisa Shaw who shot him until 6 April. 19.8 million people watched the 'big reveal' episode and the kick-off of a UEFA Cup semi-final football game was delayed in order to avoid a programming clash.



Who killed Tom King? Emmerdale


This Christmas Emmerdale plot in 2006 had fans reeling. Tom King was battered with an ornament, pushed through a window and killed on his wedding night - but there were plenty of people with a murderous motive. They even developed a 'Who Killed Tom King?' website so viewers could play along! Tom's son Carl confessed to the murder the following May - a whopping five months later.



Who killed Texas? Hollyoaks


Hollyoaks' Texas Longford was planning to leave her fiancée Will for pretty boy Dodger...but that was before she fell out of a window in her wedding dress. Five suspects were set up by Hollyoaks producers, but they revealed that Will was the real killer a few days later. It didn't go on for very long, but boy was it good!
