Wayne Rooney vice girl Helen Wood is set to join forces with the team behind The Only Way Is Essex for a new Channel 4 reality series. According to the Sunday Mirror, show bosses plan on giving a "glimpse into the lives" of Escort girls such as Helen and their relationships with wealthy men.
The show will star Helen Wood - famous for bedding footballer Wayne Rooney - and will be made by The Only Way Is Essex creator Sarah Dillstone.
"The project was originally inspired by a website called seekingarrangement.com, which is billed as ‘the premier Sugar Daddy dating site’," a source explained. “It provides an opportunity for rich businessmen to offer ‘financial assistance’ to single and attractive girls in exchange for their company.
"The programme is to be based around five girls seeking such arrangements. It plans to show the girls’ side of the story and the exciting, lavish lifestyle that such an arrangement can provide.
“A pilot has been made and the programme makers are now in extensive talks with Channel 4, who appear very likely to take it on board," the source added. “They feel that with the headlines that Helen created from her work as an escort girl, she is perfect to be the face of the new programme.”
A spokesperson for Channel 4 confirmed talks were being held, but refused to confirm any details about th eplanned series, saying: “There’s a media debate about high-profile personalities being unfaithful.
“We’re looking at a number of ideas to get a glimpse into the lives of the women involved.”
