She was hired by Carla Connor to test the temptations of her ex-Peter Barlow.
But fans of Coronation Street have been left in hysteria due to the look of the Tina McIntyre on Wednesday night, as fans claimed they were nothing like actress Michelle Keegan.
On Twitter, viewers of the ITV soap scene claim that the beautiful young Karina – who was interviewed for a job at Underworld – did not show any resemblance to the spirited young character, despite Peter's "Mediterranean" & # 39; Tina mentioned.

It was meant as a trip down memory lane for Peter as he interviewed Carina, who could be mistaken for her brunette beehive, exotic skin color and thick earrings like Tina.
It seemed that Carla's plan was somewhat successful when Peter was surprised by Carina at the beginning of the interview and could not avoid staring at her.
Later, when he asked Carla if she noticed the similarity, the businesswoman denied the plot.
But she got the answer she hoped for, as her previous flame said: "No, because the last thing we need is a daily reminder of the biggest mistake of my life."

Surprising: when she arrived for a job interview, Peter could not help but stare at Carina while reminding him of Tina
Who me? Despite the drafting of the plan, Carla played stupidly when Peter asked if she saw how Carina looked like Tina
Truth: But it seemed that Peter Carla gave the answer she wanted when he said: "The last thing we need is a daily reminder of the biggest mistake of my life & # 39;
But fans were not so convinced by the Tina McIntyre clone as Carla and Peter, and they took to Twitter to share their opinions.
One of them said: "No, no good Tina McIntyre lookalike," while another added: "The interviewed bird did not at all look like Tina McIntyre lol. & # 39;
A third placed: & # 39; That girl did not look anything like Tina yesterday, why does Carla Peter test? & # 39;
Hilarious: Many fans did not seem to want Carina to look like Tina, because they claimed she did not look like actress Michelle
The storyline had been bullied a few weeks earlier as a way for Carla to test ex-husband Peter after having had an affair with Tina.
When he came closer again after his separation from Toyah Battersby, Peter and Carla were reluctant to revive their relationship, but it seems that this outcome could be the thing to finally bring them together.
Of course, for some it was a disappointment – or a missed opportunity – that Michelle was not brought back to repeat her role.
Strange: for many fans it was a missed opportunity because actress Michelle could not resume her role
In a speech to the TV Times about the conspiracy, actress Alison King said: "When interviewing a new operator in Underworld, Carla notices how much looks like Tina, one of the applicants. So she decides to have Peter interview her and see how he is tackling it. She tests whether he has changed or not.
& # 39; But will he pass the test? You will have to wait and see! Peter is older and wiser and perhaps not as impulsive as he once waged war. He will prove that he can help run the business successfully and then he will sit back and watch what happens. & # 39;
Whether Carla could give it to Peter a while ago, Alison added: "I think they essentially love each other and that it is a very friendly relationship under the surface, no matter what happened. Even if they say they hate each other, they actually know that they do not. & # 39;
RIP: Exciting scenes saw Carla's brother Rob Donovan kill Tina after her affair with Peter was unveiled in 2014
Fans might remember that the marriage of Carla and Peter crumbled after his affair with Tina was revealed and in an attempt to silence her Carla & # 39; s brother Rob furiously killed her.
The scenes saw the violent death of a fan-favorite character, and Carla's anger over the affair also led her to misbehave her unborn baby.
But in the past few weeks – after breaking his relationship with Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) because of lying about her cousin Susie – Peter has contacted Carla again.
Although many hope that the couple will reunite, others can not help but wonder if Nick Tilsley's (Ben Price) could turn a heavy return on paid returns.
Coronation Street will take place on Friday 31 August at 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm at ITV.
She's gone: it was a violent end to the character, especially since Tina was considered a favorite with her for six years
