Helen Flanagan: 'I'm Ready For A Good Film Role... Or Celebrity Big Brother'

You'd be forgiven for forgetting that Helen Flanagan is actually an actress by trade what with her love of getting naked and rocking up to the opening of a packet of crisps. But the former 'Coronation Street' star has big plans to return to her craft (dahlink). VERY big plans.

Hels has revealed she's off to the Cannes Film Festival this year in a bid to get noticed and bag herself some acting roles.

“I would love to fly over to Cannes Film Festival This year. I could do some networking and the parties sound like fun too,” she told The Sun.

“I’m an actress and I’m definitely ready to get a really good film role. I’d like to do theatre, period, something very gritty,” she added.

And just in case those elusive acting roles don't materialise (as if!), Helen has a back-up plan.

“I’ve loved Celebrity Big Brother this year. It’s been really entertaining viewing. I’d go into the Big Brother house,” she said blatantly.

Hmmm, we have a feeling we know which way this is going to go.
