In dramatic scenes that aired on Wednesday night’s Coronation Street, Alina Pop (played by Ruxandra Porojnicu) left in a taxi after she told Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) she was pregnant. The couple have been drifting apart ever since Tyrone’s daughter, Hope (Isabella Flanagan) started a fire at Alina’s flat. Luckily Alina wasn’t hurt in the fire, but she has been struggling to forgive Hope after she lost her baby as a result of the blaze. However, things took a turn after Tyrone confessed his true feelings about his ex Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) and moments after the scenes aired, the star took to social media to reveal it would be one of her last.

Despite Wednesday’s episode not being Ruxandra’s final scene in the soap, the actress took to Instagram following the programme to confirm her exit.

In viewer of her 61,000 followers, Ruxandra shared a snap of her, and her onscreen boyfriend Tyrone outside the Rovers Return.

“And that’s a wrap on Corrie,” the actress penned.

“Thanks to everyone who encouraged and supported me. It meant so much.”

“People up north are well nice!” she concluded. (sic)

Wednesday’s double bill concluded with Tyrone confronting Alina who was in a taxi on the way to the airport.

“Alina,” Tyrone shouted. “Why didn’t you tell me you were pregnant?”

“You are nothing to do with me,” Alina hit back. “You think I am going to trap you, I’m not.”

As Tyrone pleaded with Alina to stay, she joked to the mechanic that the baby may not be his.


“This baby will have nothing to do with you,” Alina raged. “So, get that into your thick skull quickly.”

“But I’m the father,” Tyrone insisted as Alina replied: “Says who?”

She continued: “See, it’s not nice when someone hurts you.”

Coronation Street returns on Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
