Coronation Street star Tina O'Brien has left one fan asking 'is this a joke?' as she appeared to get emotional on set with her 'Platt fam'. The actress recently celebrated her 40th birthday but despite the occasion, it was business as usual as she headed to work.
Tina, who is known for playing Sarah Barlow - nee Platt - in the ITV soap previously shared a picture of herself on set in the Platts' home, No.8 Coronation Street, with Helen Worth, Sue Nicholls, Jack P Shepherd, Ben Price and Julia Goulding, who all play members of her on-screen family.

Lucy then reshared the post with a string of heart and crying emojis but she also sneakily added a string of thinking face emojis. Meanwhile, Paddy shared the post and sweetly said: "I adore these people," with a number of red heart emojis.
But away from the return rumours, Tina has since returned to Instagram to share more snaps from her surprise birthday treat at work. She shared the same snap of her and her co-stars as well as another which showed her preparing to blow out the candles on her cake.
The former Waterloo Road star also looked emotional as she held up a personalised card featuring pictures from her time on the soap as her co-stars laughed around her.
