Helen Flanagan is to launch a career as a talent show judge.
The former 'Coronation Street' actress has joined the panel of a new "sexy" pilot programme, 'Is This Talent?', which will be filmed in her native Bolton, north west England, next week, alongside fellow beauties Georgia Salpa and Rhian Sugden.
The blonde stunner will give her verdict on seven acts who will have three minutes each without any interruptions to impress the judges and live audience.
She said: "I'm really looking forward to being involved with this exciting new show and pleased it's taking place in my hometown of Bolton.
"I know it will be a fun-packed night."
Sales manager-turned-comic Paul Alistair, who is also on the panel, has devised the new series and he is hoping the pilot will "reinvigorate" the "tired" talent show genre.
He told The Bolton News newspaper: "I am thrilled and delighted to be bringing my new TV talent show to Bolton.
"I hope people come and support it and see the amazing new talent we have found.
"'Is This Talent?' is a new twist to a tired format, it is going to revitalise and reinvigorate the genre.
"It will not only be funnier and sexier it will also have a feel-good factor to it and will be the showcase of all talents in Britain."
