Helen Flanagan: 'I'm Too Bonkers To Be Considered Sexy'

Helen Flanagan may have recently been voted the sexiest woman in the UK, but she is baffled why men lust after her.

The former 'Coronation Street' babe - famed for her blunders - has revealed she thinks she is 'too bonkers' to be sexy.

"Personally, I think I'm a bit too bonkers to be considered 'sexy', but it is flattering," she told Now magazine.

"For me, sexiness is all about confidence and not caring what other people think about what you wear."

She also revealed that her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair is 'proud' of her and her famous curves.

"I'm proud of my figure - I love my curves and my boobs," she said. "Scott loves them too and is so proud - he keeps telling people, bless him, and I'm like, "Shut up!"' she added.

Fans are set to get more of an insight into the star's life soon, with the news Helen has landed her own reality TV show.

A source told The Sunday People last month: "She's excited - she can't believe she's being offered her own show. She's perfect for ITV2. Her life's a car crash and the British public love to watch it."

The deal is said to be worth £500,000 and is expected to hit screens later this year.
