Helen Flanagan is keen to land a comedy role after playing 'Coronation Street' beauty Rosie Webster gave her a taste for the genre

Helen Flanagan wants to get into comedy.

The actress left 'Coronation Street' in February 2012 and she said portraying the misadventures of street siren Rosie Webster has given her a taste for comedic roles.

Asked if she'd ever return to the ITV soap, Helen said: "Yeah, I'd never rule anything out. Obviously my character was a comedy character and it's really sweet when people say they miss me on 'Corrie'.

"Comedy is something that I'd like to get into."

The 22-year-old starlet is open to the idea of doing more reality TV after appearing on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' last year and says the experience has boosted her self-confidence and helped rid her of her anxiety.

She added to Star magazine: "I really enjoyed doing 'I'm a Celebrity'... because when I left 'Coronation Street' I wasn't in the best place, and I just wanted a break from everything.

"So when that came up I just saw it as a great opportunity and it gave me my confidence back. It was really nice when people tell me that they loved me in that, it does give you confidence.

"The good thing about reality TV is that you're just being yourself."
