Helen Flanagan is keen to appear in 'Strictly Come Dancing' now she has bowed out of her role as Rosie Webster in 'Coronation Street'

Helen Flanagan is keen to appear in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'Coronation Street' actress - who bows out of the ITV1 soap tonight (03.02.12) when her alter-ego Rosie Webster travels to London to take part in a reality TV show - admitted while she would like to learn a new skill, she is too scared to commit to something where she would be constantly watched.

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."

Despite Helen - who has appeared in 'Corrie' since she was nine - admitting it was the "right decision" for her to leave the soap, the brunette beauty explained filming her final scenes was an "emotional experience.

She added in an interview with Inside Soap magazine: "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."
