Tina Louise Dingle was born in May 1978, the youngest child of Zak and Nellie Dingle who lived and worked at Wishing Well Cottage, Beckindale.
Tina Dingle set her sights on a stranger at a village dance in late December 1994. She found out this stranger was Luke McAllister, the man her family held responsible for killing her older brother Ben. However she soon set her sights on him after a brief dalliance with Terry Woods. In March 1995 Tina and Luke became a couple. On their wedding day in July 1995 Tina jilted Luke at the altar. She said she could never forgive him for the death of Ben.
In August 1995 Luke kidnapped Tina. He took her on a mad van drive around the village. Tina dived out of the van and Luke lost control and crashed. The car blew up, killing him. A few days later she was seen taking some of Luke's belongings from his house and was berated by Betty Eagleton. Jessica McAllister returned to the village for the funeral of Luke.
