Rosie on Kevin's affair and Tony's downfall

By
Coronation Street's Rosie Webster's (Helen Flanagan) bank balance increases by a fair few grand in a couple of weeks' time when John Stape (Graeme Hawley) has an attack of the guilties and decides to hand over his £150,000 inheritance from the sale of his grandma's house.

With a stash of cash in hand, Rosie flaunts her new wealth around the Street, enjoying champagne in the Rovers, a shopping trip to buy a £3k handbag and a flashy new sports car. All her mum Sally (Sally Whittaker) wants, however, is a hot tub in the garden. Classic Mrs Webster.

Add into that the extra attention she begins to receive from Underworld boss Luke Strong (Craig Kelly) and it looks like Rosie's onto a winner...

Last week, I managed to catch up with Helen during a break filming at Corrie. Click here to read the main part of the interview. Read on, however, for some bonus helpings of storyline goodness.

What was your reaction to the Molly and Kevin affair storyline when you first heard about it?
"I think it'll be brilliant. I was filming a scene the other day when Rosie nearly walked in on them together and I couldn't watch it! I actually felt like my dad was having an affair right in front of my eyes!"

What do you think Rosie would say?
"Rosie can be a bit of a bitch, but she does have a heart and I think she'll be devastated. That'd really upset her and even though she thinks her mum's a pain in the backside, she loves her mum and dad. It'd be a big wake-up call for Rosie and would probably make her more mature."

Would you like Rosie to be involved in Tony Gordon's downfall?
"It'd be lovely to be, but it's such a big storyline. It'll be interesting to see how it all unravels. It's going to be huge. I don't think Rosie's ever forgiven Tony for that time when she dressed up for him in that skimpy underwear in the hotel, though!"

Is there anybody that you've not had a scene with that you'd love to work with?
"My favourites on the Street are Malcolm Hebden who plays Norris and Maggie Jones who plays Blanche. They are legends. I've had a few scenes with Norris and Blanche's one-liners are hilarious. When I'm watching at home, they make me laugh so much.

"I've heard that I have a few scenes coming up with Kym Marsh, who I get on really well with, so I'm looking forward to that. Everything she does is really natural. We're 'love rivals' on-screen, too…But really there's no competition is there?! I'm not much of a rival! Luke'll just choose Kym anyway!"
