Everything is coming up Rosie on the cobbles as Coronation Street today confirmed that Helen Flanagan has had her contract extended to December.
Rosie returned to Weatherfield on Monday night and immediately found herself at the centre of the drama when she and Sophie discovered they had been used as drugs mules.
Helen was originally contracted for three months but ITV have now announced that Rosie will be staying in Weatherfield with her family.
Viewers can expect lots of comedy and some romance for Rosie, she will also find a new unlikely career on the cobbles.
Producer Kate Oates said: “We are thrilled to have Helen back and delighted that she is now going to become a more permanent fixture in Weatherfield. Rosie is a classic Coronation Street comedy character and we are looking forward to seeing more of her antics in the future.”
Helen said: “I am having so much fun being back here playing Rosie again. The writing is hilarious and I am delighted to be staying around. I can’t wait to see what Rosie is going to get up to.”
