The Sun: “I’ve had girls say, ‘You’re such a b***h’. Girls are more b****y than men ,but it can be quite dangerous sometimes.

“It’s easier to go out when there’s security and you’re all together.”

Helen added: “People say nasty things. I think it’s because Rosie’s so promiscuous, but I’m a proper geek.”

Meanwhile, fellow Coronation Street star Charlie Lawson has admitted he is fed up with the acting game.

The Northern Irishman has returned to filming the role of Jim McDonald in the soap for its tram crash storyline.

But The Mirror quotes him: “I’ve been an actor for 31 years and I’m lucky I’ve always been busy. But I get fed up with it. It’s not the same job it used to be – nobody seems to have fun any more.”

Nevertheless, Charlie, who has just opened a farm shop with his partner Debbie Stanley, said he is ‘thrilled’ to be back in the show for its 50th anniversary.
