Played by: Eva
Appeared: 1993 - October 1994
Wicked Tanya was first introduced as one of the barmaids in the
trendy pub, The Queens, where Liz McDonald was manageress for
a time. She had rather a spiteful nature and could say hurtful
things. She later reappeared as a barmaid in the Rovers and quickly
became Raquel's nemesis, setting
her up with a fake modelling date which left Raquel standing alone
in a deserted fruit and vegetable market for ages before realising
it was a cruel joke.
Tanya was having an affair with Des's boss, Alex Christie, a married man, but
she was dissatisfied. Taking the flat above Alma's cafe, she also conducted a
three-month affair with Des Barnes while he was going out with Raquel. Once she
had ruined their relationship, she set her sights on trucker Charlie
Whelan, Bet Gilroy's man, and finally ran off
with him, leaving Bet devastated.
Although Tanya was not a long-term resident of the Street she
certainly made her mark and is still remembered favourably by
fans who could not work out if she was entirely evil, or just
a very unhappy woman.
