Helen is best known for playing the eldest daughter of Sally and Kevin Webster in the popular ITV1 soap Coronation Street. When in 2011 it was announced that she would leave the soap to ‘pursue other interests’, people were intrigued to find out if her real life personality would mirror that of her brattish onscreen persona. Since her exit Helen has courted the media and caused controversy with her tweets. In addition she had more than her fair share of headlines during her stint in I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
Helen took her first steps towards launching her TV career when, at the tender age of five, she started taking drama lessons at Carol Godby's Theatre Workshop in Bury. She was in numerous adverts, before landing the part of Rosie Webster Coronation Street, in 2000.
The role earned Helen a number of headlines, with controversial storylines seeing Rosie involved in an affair with her school teacher, being kidnapped and pursuing a career as a glamour model.
Helen's stint on Corrie earned her two nominations at the British Soap Awards, for Best Dramatic Performance from a Young Actor or Actress (2006) and Villain of the Year (2007).
Shortly after leaving the Corrie cobbles, Helen entered the I'm A Celebrity... jungle for the 2012 series. After she was repeatedly voted to do the Bucktucker Trials, viewers saw the former Coronation Street break down in tears as she confessed she couldn’t cope with the strain that being in the jungle was putting her under. Helen was eventually voted out, finishing in seventh place.
