I’m A Celebrity 2012 star Helen Flanagan has already been getting her bikinis on and boobs out, ahead of the series launch on Sunday night.
After quitting Coronation Street’s cobbles in February to enjoy a well-earned break, Helen can’t wait to rough it in the wild and show millions how different she is away from her soap character in real life.
And the pretty star, who played Rosie Webster for 12 years in ITV1’s top soap, looks like she will certainly bring some glamour to the camp as she vows to pack three bikinis in her rucksack and slap plenty of fake tan on.
“People don’t expect me to be in the jungle and one of my big reasons for doing I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is I like to have different options, “ says Helen. “I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket and I like to take things how they come.
“I also always go with my instinct too and when the offer came through, it felt right to do this.
What’s so nice about this show is I can go in as me. It won’t be my toughest role yet because I am being me rather than someone else.
“I loved being in Coronation Street and I loved playing Rosie but now I am going in the jungle, I am going to completely throw myself into it.
“People say you make friends for life and so I am really excited about making some new friends in the jungle. It will be good to discover things about myself too – my different strengths and weaknesses.”
Smiling happily, she adds: “I went shopping in London before I flew out to buy some bikinis for the jungle.
“You can take three sets in and so I am going to do that. I don’t mind that it is going back to basics because I will make sure I am tanned, manicured and I have got my lashes on!”
I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here starts Sunday at 9PM on ITV1.
