Helen Flanagan is set to continue her reality roles, with rumours of her own reality show and a stint on Strictly Come Dancing later this year.

The People reports that the former Coronation Street star, who played the character of Rosie Webster for 12 years, has been offered a fly-on-the-wall reality show, similar to shows from Kerry Katona and Katie Price.

The actress left the ITV soap in January 2012 to pursue other roles and was quickly signed up by the broadcaster to join I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Flanagan finished in seventh place on the 12th series of the show (2012).

The paper quotes a source saying: "Since she appeared on I'm A Celeb... love her or hate her she's fascinating to watch. She's being viewed as the next big thing for the network."

The source also explained that ITV executives have a vision of her picking up where Kerry Katona and Katie Price left off with their reality series.

The Daily Mail also reports that 22-year-old Flanagan is set to join Strictly Come Dancing later this year. The paper reports the actress was offered a spot on the BBC reality dancing show last year but declined, and now producers are following up on their previous offer.

Last year the actress was quoted in the Sunday Mirror as saying: "I would like to learn a new skill, so Strictly Come Dancing would be good – but I can’t dance at all. Oh, and there’s no way I could be in Dancing On Ice. It would be far too terrifying".
