It comes after soap bosses reportedly gave Tina a week off of work last month after it was revealed that she'd been caught up in a brawl 'over boys' outside her home in Stockport as a 'victim of an unprovoked incident'. Greater Manchester Police were investigating reports of an assault outside the soap star's home in Bramhall on March 15. Footage of the alleged incident, which has been published by the Sun, appeared to show Tina caught in the middle of a brawl.

The Manchester Evening News understands no arrests have been made following the incident. It's understood police have now ended their enquiries, as the MEN reported in April. A spokesperson for Tina told The Sun last month: "Tina was the victim of an unprovoked incident outside her home which she has reported to the police."
