The actress, who played Rosie Webster on the ITV soap, gave footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair a taste of what their domestic life could be like in the racy snaps - but made it clear that she would always want a career of her own.
"I think some people have the misconception that if you're going out with a footballer, you're some sort of brat and get whatever you want," she told the magazine.
"I'm just a really normal girl... but I don't think I could be a stay-at-home housewife. I'm not dissing that, but it's not really me. I'm not the best at baking cakes."
However, Flanagan did admit that she has started thinking about her future with Sinclair, suggesting that she would like to have four of her own children and adopt some more with the Man City player.
The 22-year-old also defended the numerous scantily-clad photos that have been uploaded to her Twitter in recent times, stating: "I do love my body. And I'm quite happy with my weight. I think it's bad to be too obsessed with your weight or how you look."
She continued: "Most girls do that [take sexy pictures]. The only difference is that my tweets end up on news sites."
