Coronation Street star Tina O'Brien is facing allegations that she smashed ex-boyfriend Ryan Thomas' wing mirror with a baseball bat following a heated row.

Tina and Ryan – who played on-screen couple Sarah Platt and Jason Grimshaw in the hit ITV soap – were an item for six years until 2009.

However, reports claim that they got in to a furious argument late at night on Sunday (February 27) after she had enjoyed a night out with friends.

Tina, 37, now stands accused of smashing a wing mirror of his Range Rover and scratching paintwork on the car during the fracas.

A source told The Sun: “Ryan and Tina have a fractious relationship. They are not on good terms and that tension boiled over.

“Tina, who was at a pal’s house party, came out into the street to meet him as he drove up. Soon after that, his car was damaged with the baseball bat.

“It was quite a disturbing incident and Ryan drove away as soon as he could. They’ve not spoken since and Ryan is furious.”

Ryan, 37, is currently expecting his second child with TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh, 30. He allegedly took the car to be repaired the following day.

A source added: “Tina and Ryan barely speak nowadays and this seems to have snapped the fragile thread their relationship was hanging by.”

Tina and Ryan started dating in 2003 after her relationship with Corrie actor Bruno Langley ended, and welcomed daughter Scarlett in 2007, with Tina quitting the soap to look after her.

She later revealed she had been planning to come back to the cobbles but Ryan talked her out of it, sparking suspicion with her that he wasn't happy.

She told new! magazine: "Maybe he knew he was going to end it and didn't want the hassle of us working together."

The couple eventually ended their relationship in 2009, two years after she left the soap.

At the time she revealed the reason for their split saying: "He said he didn’t love me anymore. Those were his words. I was devastated.

"He said he didn't want the responsibility of a relationship with me."

Tina also admitted she begged Ryan to change his mind, but the Jason actor refused to try and "fix" their relationship.

The actress eventually moved on and found love again, meeting her husband Adam Crofts and welcoming a son with him in 2014, and eventually tied the knot in 2016.

Tina said that she and Ryan had moved on and were friends, saying: “Everyone has moved on and is in a happy place. Ryan is really happy and we are happy, so there aren’t any issues.”

When Tina and Adam got married on New Year's Eve 2018, Ryan was invited to attend the ceremony.

Ryan – who quit Corrie in 2016 – then met and fell for Lucy, 30, as they appeared on Bear Grylls’ Celebrity Island a year later.

The couple then announced their engagement in 2019, with their first son Roman born in March 2020.

Ryan then announced in November that he and Lucy are expecting their second child with an Instagram post that read: “Here we go again.”

Around the time Tina cryptically posted on Instagram leading fans to believe she was swiping at the couple.

She wrote: “Don’t always trust what you see on social media. Even salt looks like sugar.”

She then deleted that message and posted: “Don’t waste your time with explanations. People will hear what they want to hear.”

Tina – who made her Corrie comeback in 2015 – is currently at the centre of a key storyline after stalker Lydia Chambers set her sights on her character Sarah’s husband Adam.
