Elsewhere, Tina spoke of her experience as she remembered the ‘warmth’ of the cast when she first appeared on the soap as a 16-year-old.
She revealed: ‘I knew that I was going into something massive but I just remember that the cast were so lovely.’
This comes as Tina’s ex Ryan Thomas has reportedly told her that she must pay him £ 1,000 for allegedly smashing his Range Rover with a baseball bat.
Tina is said to have taken off a wing mirror and caused paint damage to her former partner’s vehicle after an argument last month.

A source told The Sun: ‘Ryan will be billing Tina for what she has done to his car. She caused around £ 1,000 worth of damage after going at it with a baseball bat.
‘The paintwork needs sorting out and the wing mirror is a write-off. Ryan doesn’t want any more drama with Tina and was left really shaken up by her actions di lei.
‘But he wants her to right the wrong when it comes to the cost he was saddled with. This incident has caused a huge amount of tension but Ryan wants to move on. ‘
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Tina and Ryan for comment.
The pair, who played couple Sarah Platt and Jason Grimshaw on Coronation Street, were an item for six years until 2009.

Tensions between the pair are said to have boiled over last weekend after Tina had spent the evening with pals, with the motor’s wing mirror allegedly smashed off and the paintwork scratched.
A source told The Sun: ‘Ryan and Tina have a fractious relationship. They are not on good terms and that tension boiled over.
‘Tina, who was at a pal’s house party, came out into the street to meet him as he drove up. Soon after that his car di lui was damaged with the baseball bat.
‘It was quite a disturbing incident and Ryan drove away as soon as he could. They’ve not spoken since and Ryan is furious. ‘
Another source added that Tina and Ryan hardly speak anymore and the ‘fragile thread’ on which their relationship was hanging has snapped.
Former Celebrity Big Brother winner Ryan, who is currently expecting his second child with reality star Lucy Mecklenburgh, 30, is said to have taken the car to be repaired the day after the alleged incident.
Tina and Ryan began dating in 2003 after she split from fellow Coronation Street cast member Bruno Langley.
But the pair split in 2009, with Tina saying at the time: ‘He said he didn’t love me any more. Those were his words about him. I was devastated. ‘
Tina went on to find love with husband Adam Crofts who she married on New Year’s Eve in 2018.
Ryan met his current partner Lucy while filming Bear Grylls’ Celebrity Island in 2017, a year after he left Coronation Street.
