Helen would consider saucy shoot

Helen Flanagan, 22, is said to be keen on doing Playboy to raise her US profile.

‘She says it can be done tastefully as she doesn’t want to shame her family,’ says a pal.

But Yanks may not be so welcoming after she recently had to apologise for an ill-timed Twitter pic.

Helen caused outrage after posting a photo of herself holding a gun to her head just days after 26 people were massacred at American school Sandy Hook.

The I’m A Celebrity

star was accused of ‘brainless stupidity’ for uploading the snap on the

day the first victims were laid to rest in Newtown, Connecticut.
