Helen Flanagan is ready to put her bikinis away and get back to her day job, after revealing that she’s landed a role in a new British film.

Since leaving Coronation Street last year Helen, 22, has gone on to appear on ITV’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! where her constant tantrums over the Bushtucker Trials helped her come in at a respectable 7th place.

Now it seems the actress has her sights set on a career on the big screen with Helen letting slip that she’s bagged herself a role in a “gritty” new film based on a true story about a victim of bullying.

Helen revealed: “It’s really gritty and it’s terrible actually because it’s based on a true story. It’s tragic. The girls who did it are in prison now.”

If it’s OK with you Helen we’ll withhold judgement until we learn more…
