Coronation Street’s Alina Pop was unaware of a big betrayal on the soap on Friday night – and the actress who plays her was just as baffled as she sat on a train home.
For Corrie star Ruxandra Porojnicu tweeted at the end of the drama-filled episode on Friday night asking fans what was happening as she was on a train and unable to watch the show live.
But, hilariously, she revealed she could hear her own VOICE on the train as a female passenger was apparently glued to the action on her mobile phone.

On Friday night, a fuming Alina was left waiting for her love Tyrone with a takeaway for an hour expecting him to bring a bottle of Prosecco to “celebrate” their surprise engagement – unaware that Tyrone was actually cracking open the fizz – and cracking on with his ex Fiz.
Taking to Twitter to ask what was going on, actress Ruxandra asked followers: “Was I on tonight’s epsiode? Cuz I’m on the overground and I could hear my voice and someone saying: ‘Alina’,” followed by laughter emojis.

She went on: “A lady was watching Corrie on her phone, I’m sure of that cuz I heard the ending tune “tana na naaaaa.”
Amused fans were only too happy to update Ruxandra on what they’d just witnessed – while trying to spare her too much of Alina’s betrayal.
One fan tweeted: “Yeah you was in Corrie Ruxandra but I don’t think you’re gonna like what happens with Tyrone and Fiz… then he comes home to Alina looking all guilty.”

Another updated her: “While you were on the train, Tyrone was kisses Fizz on the sofa. Best put him on the naughty step.”
A third added: “You were 90% of the episode! When Tyrone didn’t bring back the fizz…”
Ruxandra’s post also led to fans continuing to air their suspicions that her character will soon be leaving the soap – possibly in dramatic fashion.
Romanian actress Ruxandra, 28, posted a series of snaps with her co-stars at a Manchester restaurant earlier this month, that many fans felt had a “leaving do” vibe behind them.

One fan said: “Are you leaving, hope not.”
Another said: “I hope that wasn’t your leaving do.”
Certainly with Tyrone (Alan Halsall) and Fiz (Jennie McAlpine) looking to be rebuilding their relationship, it would put Alina’s future in Weatherfield in doubt.

And of course many fans fear that Fiz’s daughter Hope could wreak yet more havoc on the street after getting off lightly at the youth courts for setting fire to Alina’s flat, which saw Alina lose her baby with Tyrone.
Corrie has declined to comment on the Alina storyline speculation, so fans will need to stay glued to the screen to see how this one plays out…
