Tracy and Tina are at loggerheads. (© ITV)
Tension arises when Dennis Tanner confesses to Tina that in a desperate bid for cash, he has sold Rita's engagement ring to Barlow's Buys.
Despite her anger towards Dennis, and knowing that Rita will be devastated if she were to find out, Tina offers to use her surrogacy money to buy the ring back.
But as always, Tracy spots an opportunity to wind Tina up and not only does she charge them an extortionate amount for the ring, she also reveals to Rita what Dennis did in front of a packed Rovers Return.
"Tracy is really awkward with Tina," said actress Michelle Keegan in behind-the-scenes footage.
"She goes out of her way to be malicious towards her and Dennis and she makes things very, very difficult.
"Automatically Tina and Tracy are at loggerheads and they clash big time. Tracy goes out of her way to constantly wind Tina up.
"Tina has just had enough of it, sometimes she can hold herself back, but sometimes she can't help but bite."
With Tina having enough of Tracy's constant digs, the young barmaid hatches a plan to get her own back on her nemesis.
Michelle explained: "Tina then decides, after all that Tracy has done to her, to play a little trick on her and she manages to get hold of a pair of underwear and she plants it in (Tracy's boyfriend) Rob's car while Tyrone is trying to fix it.
"So Tracy finds a pair of knickers and believes that Rob has been cheating on her.
"But it doesn't take Tracy long to work out that Tina is behind it."
So it seems that Tina's actions have added fuel to the fire and before long their feud is out of control.
"That is the final straw between them, it's no longer little jibes anymore, and it becomes physical.
"Then Tracy starts bad mouthing Tina's dad - now we all know Tina doesn't take any rubbish from anyone who bad mouths her dad and let's just say things get broken.
"Between Tracy and Tina things are going to kick off massively - this is just the beginning."
Coronation Street is on UTV on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
