Why We Love Helen Flanagan
Helen Flanagan shot to fame playing Rosie Webster in Coronation Street, a character who went from cheeky wee poppet to mopey teenage goth to racy wannabe-WAG seemingly in the blink of an eye. Except it didn’t really happen in the blink of an eye; Rosie’s butterfly-to-caterpillar-to-sexy-butterfly transformation actually took 12 long years to unfold, so it was perfectly understandable that Helen decided she wanted to take a break from playing the character in 2012. If we’d been pretending to be someone else every day for 12 years straight, we’d probably have some kind of melty-brained breakdown.
Flanagan’s first post-Corrie outing was an appearance on I’m A Celebrity; EastEnders’ Charlie Brooks wound up winning that particular series, but did she simultaneously get her very own FHM cover? No, she did not, and Helen did. So, by our calculations, Helen wins. Them’s the rules!
