Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan can’t wait for her character – mean teen Rosie Webster – to undergo a character transformation.

New Coronation Street exec producer Phil Collinson has indicated that scheming Rosie is destined to become nicer, which self-confessed sensitive soul Helen says is exciting because it will mean she gets less grief in public!

“I’m so excited, I think you’ll see a change in my character… I’m really happy because she’s going to become a lot nicer, hopefully the audience will like her better,” Helen told whatsontv.co.uk at the British Soap Awards in London.
