Moving on: Helen Flanagan says she didn't like playing Rosie Webster on Coronation Street when she went through a promiscuous stage
She's known for her provocative outfits off set just as much as she in on the show.
But as she speaks for the first time about quitting Coronation Street, Helen Flanagan has revealed she didn't like her character's risque story lines.
Rosie Webster is seen trying to pursue a glamour modelling career as well as bedding a number of the other characters.
Helen says she is nothing like the budding model in real life.
'I like that she's confident, whereas I'm reserved and shy,' she told Hello magazine.
'I can hide behind her. She's funny and sweet too. I didn't enjoy playing her when she went through a promiscuous phase. Luckily she shows more heart these days.
'But I'd give her some advice and tell her to calm down a bit. She is fiercely ambitious and worships power and money.'

She said she would love to act in a period piece on stage, such as Romeo and Juliet but also wants to pursue a modelling career like Rosie.
Helen, 21, has played Rosie for 12 years but has quit the show to start a new life with her boyfriend Scott Sinclair, 22.
When she films her last scenes for the show in December, she will move from her parents home in Bolton to Wales to be with him.
The pair met through Helen's on-screen sister, played by Brooke Vincent.

'Brooke was meeting a male friend and he brought along Scott,' she said.
'He seemed like a nice, sweet guy and invited me on a date. We got on well and by the second date, we were best friends. That was it, we became inseparable. I knew he was The One, the only man I wanted to be with.'

But even though they have been together for two years now, Helen says it's too early to talk about marriage and children.
Helen says she made the decision to leave the show while on a three-month sabbatical from April to June.
Her break was explained on the show as Rosie having gone to London to pursue modelling.
