Helen Flanagan is set to appear on 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The former 'Coronation Street' actress is in talks about making a cameo appearance on the ITV2 reality show after growing close to 'TOWIE' stalwart James 'Arg' Argent while filming Channel 5's 'Celebrity Super Spa' for the past four weeks.
An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Helen and Arg have already discussed Helen going on 'TOWIE' as a guest slot. She's really keen. She's told him she'd love to do it because she thinks it'd be really good fun. They always have a laugh together and they both think it'll make good TV.
"Arg is keen to show off his new pal to his mates and likes the idea of going on a night out with Helen and in front of the cameras. But he's also hoping his friendship with Helen will blossom."
The 23-year-old star might even sign up in time to appear on the show in Los Angeles or Las Vegas, as show bosses are said to be planning to film part of the forthcoming series in either of the US cities.
The source added: "Plans are afloat to film in America, hopefully LA or Las Vegas.
"The cast are really excited, especially since it'll be warmer and glitzier out there."
Helen and Arg have built up a great friendship while filming upcoming reality show 'Celebrity Super Spa', and the blonde beauty is going miss "every single minute" of shooting the programme alongside the crooner.
In a post on Twitter yesterday (14.08.13), she wrote: "Going to miss the show! X (sic)"
Earlier this week, she tweeted: "My month on celeb super spa finishes tommorow! Loved every single minute of the show absolutely loved it x excited for it to air x Rap Party (sic)"
