Tanya Pooley is a fictional character and supporting antagonist of the British soap opera Coronation Street. She appeared as a supporting antagonist in 1993 and 1994.
She famously portrayed by Eva Pope.
Tanya Pooley first came to Weatherfield in 1993 as a barmaid working at The Queens, owned by local landlady Liz McDonald. The pair seemed to get along at the same point as Tanya appeared to settle herself in the street. However, it soon became clear that she develops a somewhat malicious streak through her tendencies to verbally insult people - be it whether she sees it as hurtful or not.
Soon enough, Tanya's spiteful nature began to grow more evident around the rest of Weatherfield residents. She antagonized fellow barmaid Raquel Wolstenhulme on frequent occasions, and at one point humiliated her after setting up the latter on a fake modeling date. When Raquel realized that Tanya had played a cruel joke on her, she was devastated with how much impact it has inflicted upon her. This continued to the stage where Raquel ended up standing alone in a vegetable market, though Tanya would later be told off for her behavior once this was eventually discovered.
Later on, Tanya moved in at the flat above the cafe owned by Alma Baldwin. She often got on the wrong side of Alma's husband Mike Baldwin when he questioned her motives, and at somepoint she began an affair with Raquel's boyfriend Des Barnes. Earlier on, Tanya had an affair with Des' boss Alex Christie before later breaking it off out of boredom. Once her dalliance with Des is revealed, Tanya proceeded to cheat on him with local trucker Charlie Whelan - who was continentally dating fellow pub landlady Bet Lynch.
Eventually, Tanya's troublesome shenanigans were exposed and Bet sacked her for her actions towards Raquel. She then left the street and proceeded Charlie to go with her, but he later returned a month afterwards - having realized that Tanya had only been using him and he left her on her own.
