The 23-year-old former 'Coronation Street' star has reportedly made a big impression after meeting with casting directors at MGM.
Helen 'turned heads' at the movie company during a recent trip to LA, according to The Sun.
A source told the paper: “They felt she had a unique look, great figure and natural charm on screen.”
Also in the frame for the iconic role starring alongside Daniel Craig as Bond is US supermodel Kate Upton.
Previous Bond girls have included Halle Berry, Ursula Andress and Gemma Arterton.
Helen recently bared all for her 2015 calendar.
Despite getting into trouble with her parents for going topless on Page 3 of The Sun, the actress stripped naked for a series of risque photos in the calendar.
