Corrie's Tina O'Brien: Nick and Carla's wedding has taught me how NOT to get married (VIDEO)

Newly enaged Coronation Street star Tina O'Brien is excited about the prospect of her wedding, but she promises it will be NOTHING like Nick and Carla's ill-fated nuptials.

Tina got engaged to businessman Adam Crofts earlier this month and was clearly excited by the recent development when she spoke to What's on TV.


"I'm having my ring resized and I keep doing that thing, you know, where you go [mimes feeling for a missing ring]... 'OH!! Oh.. it's OK, it's fine.' But yeah, I'm over the moon."

Before that though, Tina will be at the British Soap Awards in London this weekend and is nominated for Best Female Dramatic Performance in her role as Sarah Platt.

"I'm really excited, I feel really honoured to be nominated. I'm nominated against some very serious contending actress, but who knows? It's nice to be a contender."
