The actress opens up about her plans after having baby Matilda

Helen Flanagan has given her biggest hint yet that she could be on her way back to Coronation Street.

The actress found fame in the soap thanks to her role as Rosie Webster and admits that she’d really like to return, four years after she left the show.


Piers Morgan to join Coronation Street?!

‘I would absolutely love to go back to Coronation Street one day,’ says Helen, 25.

Eek, we’re SO excited about this! We might have to wait a little while to see Rosie grace our screens again though as Hels says she’ll only make a comeback if she can get suitable childcare arrangements.

The brunette star welcomed daughter Matilda with footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair last June and obviously the little girl is her priority.

’It would have to work around Matilda,’ Helen says of a possible Corrie return.

Helen first joined the cast as Rosie way back in 2000 and had lots of dramatic storylines over the years, ranging from underage sex to being kidnapped amongst other things.

The character left the cobbles in 2012 when she was offered the chance to take part in a reality show and headed off to London to pursue her showbiz career.

Funnily enough life imitated art as Helen found herself on reality series I’m A Celebrity later that year.

Since then she’s done various other shows – remember Celebrity Super Spa, anyone? – but more recently has been focused on motherhood.

Helen clearly still has fond memories of her Corrie days though and tries to keep in touch with her on-screen family, though admits it can be difficult to see each other.

‘I haven’t seen Sally Dynevor for a while and I definitely have to meet up with Brooke Vincent soon,’ the actress tells OK!, referring to her Corrie mum and sister.

‘We’re friends forever but it’s finding the time to meet up.’

Well if Helen DOES reprise her role as Rosie she’ll find it much easier to see her old mates again! *crosses fingers*
