Former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has said she's keen to appear on Strictly Come Dancing this year now she's quit the ITV1 soap.

Helen, who played Rosie Webster on the show, ruled out taking part in any other reality shows.

She explained: "I couldn't do a programme where you're being watched 24/7, like 'Big Brother' or 'I'm A Celebrity...'

"I would like to learn a new skill, so 'Strictly Come Dancing' would be good - but I can't dance at all. Oh, and there's no way I could be in 'Dancing On Ice'. It would be far too terrifying."

Speaking to Inside Soap Helen, who bowed out of the show earlier this week, added: "Filming my final scenes was really emotional, and I'll miss my on-screen family. Even though I'll still seem them, it'll be strange not having that day-to-day contact.

"It was a big decision for me to leave 'Corrie', but it was the right decision for me."
