Corrie’s Helen Flanagans’ blonde hair!

Our sister site, StyleJacking, has reported that Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan (aka Rosie Webster) has had a shocking hair transformation!

She has gone from long brown locks to a short Agyness Deyn blonde crop. Have a look at the photos.

The 20-year-old actress has taken a three month sabbatical from Coronation Street as part of her new contract negotiations. She wanted to spend more time with her boyfriend, footballer Scott Sinclair.

A spokesman for the actress told MailOnline:

‘Helen has had the same hairstyle and colour for many years, and decided the time was right for a big transformation.

‘She is absolutely thrilled with her new hairstyle and how it has made her feel.’

StyleJacking question how Corrie will deal with the transformation on the soap – will they acknowledge it or cover it up with a brown wig?

A spokesman for Coronation Street said:

‘We love Helen’s look and knew she was having it done. It will be mentioned in some way on her return.’

StyleJacking’s opinion is:

 it is a cute and drastic move but not really in fitting with Helen’s style. She is not really the edgiest celeb and is more prone to . Maybe this is part of her style evolution with a more sophisticated look.

There are rumours that there is a new storyline for Helen’s character, Rosie Webster, on the soap which will see her moving to London to pursue a career in glamour modelling. A spin-off show will focus on Rosie’s move.

An ITV spokesman said:

‘Following huge successes with recent online content such as Gary’s Army Diaries and Ken and Deirdre’s Bedtime Stories, we will continue to commission innovative material which complements the main ITV1 show and provides something unique for the viewer.

‘There is a vast array of exciting plans in the pipeline and we can confirm we are currently in talks with a number of current Coronation Street cast members about other potential online series.’
