Tina O’brian is back on- air playing rebellious teen mum Sarah-Louise Platt on Coronation Street.  She says, her ex, Ryan Thomas was the first to welcome her on the sets. O’brian and Ryan were in a relationship since 2003 to 2009. She gave birth to their daughter in 2008.  Thomas ended their relationship a year after their daughter, Scarlett was born. She was devastated.

But since then, she has met and is married to her personal trainer boyfriend Adam Crofts. They have a son, Beau, together. She says, “'Adam is all of the things I want in a man. He is wonderful, very, very caring and supportive and he makes me happy. It’s hard to explain how special he is, but I know he’s got my back. 

'And I fancy the pants off him too – which always helps. Do I want to get married again? Yeah, maybe...'

O’brian, age 31, has had a busy schedule this year. In October, it was announced that her show was going to be back on air. Then after a few weeks she gave birth to her son, Beau.

Now she is back on screen playing Sarah-Louise Platt on Coronation Street and the first person who welcomed her with open arms was Ryan Thomas, her ex.

She was very devastated when he ended their relationship back in 2009. But she has since moved on. She laughs at how close they have since become as a family.

In an interview, she says that she had discussed coming back on the show with Ryan and he had been very supportive.

Her boyfriend, Adam, has also been very supportive about her come back on the show. The proud parents had 3 months together with their son before she came back to work on January.

O’brian said in an interview, “It was nice because it meant that I could have this really precious time with my little boy but I also knew that I was going back to something as well. Like any mum, it is a juggle. I don’t think I would be able to do this if it wasn’t for Adam. He has been amazing.”

This hot diva rose to the heights of fame when her character Sarah- Louise Platton gave birth to a child when she was 13 years old. But after ten years of playing this role, she decided to leave and try out different things.

Coming back she says, she feels like a completely different person. When she started out, she had no responsibilities. But now, she has two children and has to juggle her work and home life. She also says, she has more experience and feels more content. She also says, having a job in Manchester and on something as big as Coronation Street, she feels very, very lucky. And that she certainly doesn’t take it for granted.

She is very active in twitter and instagram with over 150 thousand followers. She has also appeared in a couple of movies.
