Brooke Vincent as Sophie Webster

Brooke Vincent is keen to get her on-screen sister Helen Flanagan back on 'Coronation Street' but she doesn't think the former model will return just yet because she's enjoying being a mum

Brooke Vincent doesn't think "any amount of money" would persuade Helen Flanagan to return to 'Coronation Street.'

The 23-year-old star - who plays lesbian Sophie Webster in the ITV soap - is desperate to have her on-screen sister back on the Cobbles, but she doesn't think the model, 25, who played drama-queen Rosie until 2012, will want to leave her six-month-old daughter Matilda at the moment.

She explained: "I hoped that Helen would have come back. But she has just had a little girl and she is so gorgeous.

She looks like she is really enjoying being a mum. She has wanted that for a long, long time and I don't think any amount of money would bring her back away from her daughter at the minute. But maybe one day she will come back but, at the minute, she is just enjoying being a mum."

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty - who joined 'Corrie' when she was just 11 years old - is set to take a short break from the soap this year in order to star in her first-ever stage play as a pregnant mum at Salford's Lowry Theatre.

However, Brooke is adamant her new career path doesn't mean the end for her alter-ego in 'Coronation Street.'

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I really like my routine, I like knowing what I am doing, knowing who is going to be there and knowing who I am working with.

"Don't get me wrong, maybe this theatre might push me on. I might think 'I really enjoyed it, let's do something else'. It just depends on how I feel but at the minute I am happy."
