The actress wants to study

Helen Flanagan wants to go back to school.

The former Coronation Street star is planning on doing her A-levels as she thinks being clever is very attractive.

‘I’m interested in psychology, English, media studies and history,’ says Helen, 23.

‘I’m all into bettering myself. Intelligence is sexy. It’s good to focus my mind on other things.

‘I felt too immature at 17 to do my A-levels and regret not doing them. And it’s always good to have a back-up plan.

‘I’m an actress and that’s my main priority but I can juggle things well.’

Helen’s made a few faux pas in the past that might have given the impression she’s ditzy but the blonde star says the image amuses her.

‘I get the reason why people think I’m a bimbo with the way I come across but I can’t help it, I’m just girly,’ the actress tells the Daily Star.

‘To be honest it entertains me that everyone thinks I’m a bimbo.

‘I’m not doing this to prove anything to anyone else apart from myself.’
