Having left Coronation Street’s cobbles in February, Helen Flanagan can’t wait to return to our screens: “I loved being in Coronation Street and I loved playing Rosie, but now I am going in the jungle, I am going to completely throw myself into it,” she says. “I went shopping in London before I flew out, to buy some bikinis for the jungle.
I don’t mind that it is going back to basics because I will make sure I am tanned, manicured and I have got my lashes on!”
Helen reckons her Coronation Street co-stars will be tickled to see her in the jungle: “Everybody at Coronation Street watches I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! It is always on in the Green Room and I know everyone is going to go: ‘Oh my God, Helen is in the jungle!’ They won’t expect me to do the trials. But it’s going to be fun and I can’t wait.”
