Soap star Helen Flanagan has been rumoured for the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 line up this summer.

The ex Coronation Street actress previously took part in I'm A Celebrity and Celebrity Big Brother would seem to be an obvious next show to appear on.

Reports have claimed Helen could be set to enter the house, with her daughter about to turn one.

A source told The Sunday Sport: "Now that her daughter is a little bit older, it would be the perfect time for her to make her return to the world of showbiz."

Helen herself is an open Big Brother fan and previously declared she'd love to become a housemate.

“I’ve loved Celebrity Big Brother this year. It’s been really entertaining viewing. I’d go into the Big Brother house," she said back in 2014.

However it was reported at the time that show bosses had offered Helen £250,000 to take part but she had turned it down because of boyfriend and dad to her daughter, Scott Sinclair.

A source told The Sun then: “She was their No1 female target for this year’s series.

"They thought she’d be spilling all her secrets in no time. But unfortunately Helen isn’t interested — even for the massive fee.

“She and Scott are really happy and she doesn’t want to jeopardise that. He wasn’t keen on the idea — so it was a flat ‘No’.”

Celebrity Big Brother airs this summer on Channel 5 with Spencer Matthews, Lady C and Union J singer Jaymi Hensley all linked to the show.

UPDATE: A spokesperson for Helen has now told the Daily Mirror that the rumours aren't true.
