Biting her lip, tipsy Tina, 39, arched her back and stuck out her bum as she lowered her self down.

Keeping her eyes locked on the camera, she shook her stuff before returning to a standing position.

Taking the mickey out of her moves, she wrote: “‘Trust me you can dance’ – Vodka”.

Despite her questionable moves, Tina looked great in a black vest top and colourful skirt that went well with her tan.

The youthful looking star was complimented by colleague Jack P Shepherd in a previous holiday selfie, with him telling her she still looked 18.

Having made her telly debut in ITV kids’ drama Children’s Ward in 1997, she auditioned for the soap aged 16. And taking over the role of Sarah Platt from actress Lynsay King set her on the road to soap stardom.

She recalled: “I think I got a three-month contract to begin with and I was just hoping to get through the first three months and hopefully stay.”

But just a year after her debut, Tina was named Most Popular New-comer at the National Television Awards and won Best Storyline at the British Soap Awards with her screen mum Gail, played by Helen Worth.

Her storylines have taken her from escaping the clutches of her killer stepdad Richard Hillman, to internet grooming and covering up a murder.

She had previously fronted a Corrie fitness DVD, Funk Fit, with her then co-stars Nikki Sanderson (who plays Candice Stowe) and Lucy-Jo Hudson (Katy Harris).

To stay trim, Tina does cardio exercises and weights at the gym. She also follows a fitness app, and being married to someone in the industry means she gets recommendations of YouTube exercises from her hubby.

She insists she doesn’t diet, but if she feels the need to cut down she avoids alcohol and white carbs. In 2020 she hit back at trolls who told her she should feel ashamed after she was pictured in hotpants.

She responded: “I should feel ashamed? And we wonder why people, especially women, struggle with self-esteem. Instead I choose to feel love and gratitude for my healthy body that allows me to run around the garden with my son and bounce on the trampoline with my daughter.”
