Helen Flanagan wants to head to Hollywood

Helen Flanagan‘s set a Christmas deadline to make a heart-wrenching choice: Hollywood or love.

The former Corrie star’s been patching things up with on/off footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair.

But after meeting with top Hollywood agents – and even talking about a role as a new Bond girl – she’s told friends she’ll make a decision about her love life by the end of the year.

Helen has her sights on Hollywood,’ says a source close to the 23-year-old. ‘She and Scott have until Christmas before she jumps on a plane and takes up residence in LA.

‘Then she’ll decide if there’s a long-distance future for them or if she’ll put Hollywood first.’

Helen‘s currently playing a tormented gun-wielding girl in Brit thriller film Mouse And Cat. But close sources confirmed she’d had a ‘productive meeting’ with LA casting directors working on the new Bond film.

It comes at a difficult time for her and Man City star Scott, 24. He’d moved out of their Cheshire home after denying claims he’d been sexting TV presenter Donatella Panayiotou in June.

Helen hinted they were back on earlier this month when she Tweeted: ‘Happiest girl in the world right now’, after they were spotted out together.
