Rosie to star in internet spin-off

Coronation Street fans will see Rosie Webster appear as a chat guest, in character, on shows such as Loose Women

Coronation Street fans will see Rosie Webster appear as a chat guest - in character - on shows such as Loose Women as she bids to become a top model.

The soap diva - played by Helen Flanagan - is to star in her own internet spin-off show in which she heads to London to pursue her modelling dreams.

And she will be seen getting caught up in a catfight with a rival model live on Lorraine Kelly's ITV1 chat show.

Helen, 20, returned to Corrie after a three-month break with her new peroxide pixie crop dyed brown, ready to get back into character as wannabe model Rosie.

ITV1 viewers will see Rosie talk about her plans in episodes of Coronation Street and head to London with builder boyfriend Jason Grimshaw (Ryan Thomas) to appear as a model on Lorraine.

The internet spin-off then picks up the story and after her TV scrap turns mouthy Rosie into an internet sensation, she is invited to be a guest on Loose Women, gets interviewed by Johnny Vaughan and Lisa Snowdon on radio's Capital FM and even launches her own website.

Corrie fans will also be able to follow Rosie on Twitter as she tweets all about her adventures in the big city.

The Rosie Webster internet series - at www.itv.com/corrie - follows other Street internet spin-offs.

Gary's Army Diaries revealed what happened to post-traumatic stress disorder sufferer Gary Windass in Afghanistan, while Ken and Deirdre's Bedtime Stories allowed viewers a peep into what Ken and Deirdre Barlow chat about in bed.

Getting handsomely rewarded for your communication skills will be gratifying. When one door closes, another will usually open.More
