Coronation Street star Tina O'Brien seen for the first time since brutal swipe at ex Ryan Thomas | The Sun

CORONATION Street actress Tina O'Brien has been photographed for the first time since taking a savage swipe at her ex-boyfriend Ryan Thomas.

The TV star, 40, stepped out yesterday in a black vest top and blue boyfriend jeans.

Tina tied her hair back, wore oversized shades and carried a leather jacket over her arm as she walked down the street.

The outing came two days after the Sarah Platt star shared, and then deleted, a quote about 'tyrannical narcissistic fathers' on Instagram.

The quote defined the negative personality trait as "a bully – a cruel, lying arrogant person. He is a tyrant that is totally entrenched in his grandiose world and insistent that everyone follow his commands.

"He is emotionally abusive and can cause significant emotional damage to all family members. Unfortunately, his behaviours cause the relationships within a family to be toxic and can cause lifelong wounds."

Then in her own words, she added: "Thankfully not my dad… but a dad that I know very well… deeply resonates."

The Sun can reveal that the cutting post came after a blistering row between her and ex Ryan over the telephone.

A source told us: "Tina had a blazing row with Ryan over the phone about their daughter – which ended with her hanging up. They rarely speak these days because they do tend to clash."

The Sun has contacted representatives for the pair for comment.

The latest incident between the two follows accusations of a late night bust up last year during which Tina is said to have smashed up Ryan's car with a baseball bat.

Ryan, 39, and Tina stunned fans when they split in 2009 just a year after having their Waterloo Road actress daughter Scarlett, 13.

Tina went on to marry Adam Crofts, with whom she has a son called Beau, in 2018, after seven years together, and they invited Ryan to the wedding.

Celebrity Big Brother winner Ryan previously sang Adam's praises as a stepfather.

He said: "Adam is cool, he's just a lovely guy."

"As a stepfather in Scarlett's life, I've hit the jackpot. She adores him."

Speaking about her relationship with her ex in the past, Tina said: “It’s taken a lot of years and a lot of biting my tongue. Seriously, though, it’s mainly down to Adam and Ryan.

“It helps that everyone has moved on and is in a happy place. Ryan is really happy and we are happy, so there aren’t any issues.

“For the sake of Scarlett, it has been well worth preserving [our relationship] and choosing our battles.”

Tina also seemed to have a great relationship with Ryan's fiance Lucy Mecklenburgh.

But things have gone sour between the blended families in the last few years.

One source said: “Ryan and Tina have a fractious relationship. They are not on good terms and that tension has boiled over."

Tina, who first played Sarah on the cobbles in 1999, began dating Ryan in 2003 after she split from Corrie actor Bruno Langley, who played Ryan's on-screen brother Todd Grimshaw.

She said at the time that she and Ryan were “for keeps”, adding: “We’ll be together for ever, fingers crossed. I can’t see myself with anyone else.”

They had an on-screen romance two years later as Sarah fell for mechanic Jason Grimshaw.

The pair were due to wed in 2007 but Sarah was jilted at the altar. She left the show later that year.

Tina and Ryan then split in 2009. Opening up later that year, Tina revealed: “He said he didn’t love me any more. Those were his words. I was devastated.”
