Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan has admitted that Weatherfield doctor Matt Carter may not be the best match for her character Tina McIntyre.

A new storyline for the Rovers Return barmaid will see Matt and Tommy Duckworth both fighting for her affections later this month, leaving her with a dilemma.

The plot begins at the end of next week as Tina enjoys being chatted up by Matt (Oliver Mellor) at the pub, unaware that Tommy (Chris Fountain) is secretly cooking a romantic meal for her back at home.

However, speaking to TV Times about Tina's chances of a long-term future with Matt, Keegan commented: "Tina is attracted to Matt, but it's a bit of a Bridget Jones situation. He's older than her and eats in lavish restaurants where she feels out of place.

"She doesn't know that Tommy cooked her a meal. If she knew, she'd be impressed."

Keegan added: "It's much more interesting to have a 'Will they, won't they?' element. Tina likes Doctor Carter, but I think she's more suited to Tommy."

The actress recently confessed that her ideal scenario would be a reunion for Tina and David Platt.
