Corrie actress hates nasty part of role

Helen Flanagan hates being horrible to Jennie McAlpine.

The 'Coronation Street' actress' alter-ego, teen vixen Rosie Webster, clashes with former love rival Fiz Brown, played by Jennie, but Helen admits she finds it difficult acting out the scenes.

She said: "I don't like coming in to work and having to be a b***h first thing in the morning - it's really hard to get into character! Jennie McAlpine is a lovely person to work alongside, so I really hate being nasty to her all the time!"

Although Helen feels uncomfortable being horrible to Jennie, the 19-year-old beauty's co-star Kym Marsh recently said she loved doing fight scenes with Helen.

She said: "We had such a laugh doing it. I really enjoyed working with Helen. Rosie's not a character I would normally meet in ordinary circumstances so it's a unique story for me to be involved in.

"Obviously Rosie's quite a lot younger than Michelle so it wouldn't necessarily happen unless there was a guy involved, so it's been really good to work with her."
