Coronation Street


“Rosie (“Coronation Street”) is outrageous and such a madam and I love playing her. I get to do things that I would never dare do.” Helen Flanagan

British model and actress Helen Flanagan is best associated with her role as Rosie Webster on the TV soap opera “Coronation Street”, which she played for 12 years from 2000 to 2012. She is scheduled to reprise her role in 2014.

On September 10, 2013, Flanagan appeared topless as a Page 3 girl in “The Sun”.

“I really, really enjoy my photo shoots and I'm not shy, as everyone knows. It's good fun. If everything is really classy and beautiful and tasteful, I don't think there's anything wrong with sexy shoots. I think women should celebrate themselves as beautiful and sexy. It's a positive thing.” Helen Flanagan

Flanagan, who was selected the most attractive British candidate in the 2013 FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll, dated Manchester City F.C. player Scott Sinclair from 2009 until they split  in 2013.

In 2006, Flanagan was nominated for a British Soap Award     in the category of Best Dramatic Performance from a Young Actor or Actress for her performance in the show. In the following year, she received a nomination for Villain of the Year in the same award.  

After leaving “Coronation Street,” Flanagan took part in the twelfth series of “I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!”, which ran from November 11, 2012 to December 1, 2012. She finished seventh place under the eventually winner, “EastEnders” actress Charlie Brooks, Ashley Roberts, David Haye, Eric Bristow, Hugo Taylor and Rosemary Shrager.   

Flanagan has made self appearances in many television shows, including “Holly & Stephen's Saturday Showdown” (2006), “Soapstar Superstar” (2006-2007), “This Morning” (2006, 2008), “Loose Women” (2007, 2009, 2013), “Hell's Kitchen” (2009), “Daybreak”  (2012), and more recently, “Big Brother's Bit on the Side” (2013), “Celebrity Wedding Planner” (2013) and “The Only Way Is Essex”  (2013). On September 13, 2013, she participated in the Channel 5 reality show “Celebrity Super Spa”.

Flanagan will return to reprise her role as Rosie in “Coronation Street” in August 2014. She has signed a four month contract.
