The actress, 26, filmed her character Tina McIntyre’s final scenes yesterday and admitted she is very sad to go.

She wrote: “Today has been one of the most overwhelming days I’ve ever had. Thank you SO much for everyone’s tweets, messages and kind words.”

Michelle – who is engaged to former TOWIE star Mark Wright – left the ITV studios to an army of fans, who presented her with presents and balloons.

She took time on Twitter to thank ITV for giving her the role of Tina, saying: “I’ll be forever in debt to Coronation Street and ITV for giving me the role of Tina. I’m going to miss her and everyone at Corrie.”

Michelle’s co-star Antony Cotton – who plays Sean Tully – last night posted a picture of himself, Michelle, Mark and a few other friends, writing: “Happy days. Here’s to your next adventure”

But Michelle didn’t leave the set of Corrie empty handed. “Thank U for all the support over the last 6 n a half yrs,” she said. “I’ll always have a piece of Tina with me- it’s inevitable I have her earrings! X.”

Tina is set to be killed of sometime next month, though how she dies is till unknown.
