Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has revealed that she has filmed her leaving scene ahead of her maternity leave:
“I’m going out in kind of very much a Rosie style. The storyline is hilarious. It is really, really funny. I’ve enjoyed that about my character, the comedy,” the actress told Loose Women.
Flanagan – who is currently expecting her second child with partner Scott Sinclair – revealed she had just two days left of filming and that the prospect of exiting Weatherfield had left her teary eyed:
“I was really emotional – I’ve absolutely loved it going back. I’ve loved it so much it’s been brilliant. I’m really, really close to Sally [Dynevor] and so, so close to Brooke [Vincent] who plays my sister. I’ll miss seeing them on a daily basis. But obviously I’ll still them every few weeks or whatever.”
Earlier this month, Flanagan stated that she would like to return s Rosie at some point in the future before adding: “just not sure when that will be.”
The character of Rosie made a much-publicised return in 2017 after five years away from Coronation Street. Speaking at the time, Flanagan said:
“I am having so much fun being back here playing Rosie again. The writing is hilarious and I can’t wait to see what Rosie is going to get up to.”
