Actress Michelle Keegan's Corrie character Tina McIntyre is being killed off

It’s official! Michelle Keegan bows out of Coronation Street next week when her screen alter ego Tina McIntyre is murdered.

Because the popular character plunges to her death, there’s no chance of the actress returning to Corrie down the line.

So what can Michelle, 26, do now? Where can her career go? Here are my 5 suggestions…

1. Sign up for a reality show. It’s already being reported that Michelle is in talks to follow in fiancé Mark Wright‘s footsteps by taking part in I’m A Celeb later this year.

‘She would be perfect for the jungle because she’s really popular and very sexy,’ a source tells the Daily Star. ‘She’s got a massive following from Corrie fans, so is bound to boost ratings.’

If slumming it in the jungle doesn’t take Michelle‘s fancy, she could always try Celebrity Big Brother or Strictly Come Dancing.

2. Join TOWIE. Now that Michelle‘s moved from Manchester to Essex to be with Mark, we’d like to see her hang out with Sam Faiers and the rest of Brentwood’s finest – on TV, obvs.

Let’s be honest, The Only Way Is Essex hasn’t been the same since Mark, 27, left the show – he could make an explosive comeback with Michelle on his arm.

3. Become a full-time fashion designer. Her new Lipsy line launches in July, so if it’s a hit, maybe Michelle can do a Victoria Beckham and turn her hand to designing permanently. After all, she already oozes style.

4. Hit the catwalks. Her body is envied by men and women all over and she has a face the camera loves, so could Michelle try out modelling? We defo think she’d be a natural on the runway. Move over, Cara Delevingne!

5. Launch a pop career. Martine McCutcheon, Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Natalie Imbruglia, Adam Rickitt… These are just some of the former soap stars who’ve made an assault on the charts. With the right songs, Michelle could be a music phenomenon. Or at least represent the UK in Eurovision.

Whatever Michelle decides to do, we know she’s got a bright future ahead of her.
