Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has admitted that her exit from the soap hasn't sunk in yet.

The actress filmed her last scenes as Rosie Webster last month following a 12-year stint on the ITV1 show. She left to pursue other roles and spend time with her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair.

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday she said: I'm taking some time out before I decide what to do next and I can't wait to have a go at cooking up some nice dinners for Scott. But that doesn't mean I'm going to do his washing - he can do that himself."

"It hasn't quite hit me that I've actually left Corrie - it feels a little like I'm on a break - but I'm sure it will when I watch my final scenes go out. I'm planning to do that at home with Scott. My last day on set I didn't cry but it was really, really emotional.

"Somehow I managed to hold it together. It was a very special day for me and one I will never forget. They presented me with a beautiful necklace, which is just stunning. It's something that I'll cherish forever."

Rosie departs from Weatherfield next month when she is offered the chance star in a dating show in London.
