Her character on the soap, Tina McIntyre, is to be killed off which means Michelle will not have the option to return.

Speaking to the Mirror, 26-year-old Michelle said: “Initially I was a bit nervous, wondering if I’d made the right decision.

“But I don’t want to look back in 10 years and think, ‘What if?’ At the minute, I’ve got no babies so I can venture out and try other things.”

While viewers don’t yet know who will kill Tina, Michelle admits she does. Or at least, she thinks she does.

She added: “I haven’t told anyone I know what happens. It’s really exciting. We haven’t really done anything like this before, so I think it give something back to the viewers.

“I do know who kills Tina… at least I think I do. They might change the ending at the last minute.”

Michelle recently revealed a few details about her character’s exit, admitting that the injuries are ‘horrific’.

She told New! Magazine: “It’s horrible. I’ve got photos of what I look like in those scenes and my dad found it difficult to look at them. Tina is in a coma and there’s pressure on her brain so they have to cut away a bit of skull and she’s got a swollen eye.

“It’s not nice. I had to walk into the canteen like that at lunchtime. You should have seen people’s faces!”
