Helen Flanagan Lands Movie Role In Bullying Film 'Bitch'

Sometimes we almost forget that Helen Flanagan's real job is acting given all the time she spends pouting on Instagram and the like, but the former 'Coronation Street' star is returning to her roots after landing a film role.

The jungle gal will star in big screen outing 'Bitch' where she's set to play a tortured victim of bullying.

H-Flan teased the 'gritty' role in an interview with the Daily Star.

"It's really gritty and it's terrible actually because it's based on a true story," she said.

"It’s tragic. The girls who did it are in prison now."

We're guessing casting producers were impressed by her, ummm, performance on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' last year.

Earlier this week, Helen let slip a piece of comedy gold when she revealed she once had a whole hotel evacuated as she thought there was a murderer under her bed, but said 'murderer' ended up actually being a refelction.

She told Star magazine: "I remember once being in a hotel and seeing a man under the bed and I completely freaked out.

"I was absolutely terrified and thought I was going to die. The whole hotel had to be evacuated and put on security lockdown.

"They checked all the CCTV and the police were called, then I realised that it was just a reflection under the mirror. I tend to do really stupid things like that," she said.
