Helen Flanagan, the former Coronation Street and 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here' star has hinted that she has a higher calling in life than taking her clothes off for the tabloids every five minutes: she wants to become a mum.

And not only that, she is ACTIVELY trying to get pregnant (too much information?).

The 23-year-old, who played Rosie Webster in the long-running soap, told Closer magazine she is keen to start a family with her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair.

In a revealing interview, the actress-turned-bikini/lingerie model, said she hadn't previously tried to get pregnant because of strong medication she'd been taking for severe acne.

But she's now ready to put motherhood before her blemishes.

She said: "I've always wanted to be a young mum and I now feel ready.

"It's something I've wanted for ages and Scott's going to be a great dad. I just hope it doesn't take me too long to get pregnant. And I'm not bothered about getting married beforehand."

She also gushed about Scott being her 'perfect boyfriend', who she lives with in Bath.

She said: "I finally feel settled and it's really fun nesting with him."

The actress also admitted she's more body confident and doesn't restrict herself any longer after being a dainty size six at the start of the year.

She said: "I've stopped doing that now and I know I've put on weight but I've just accepted it."

Manchester City football player Scott and Helen started dating in 2009.
