After quitting Coronation Street in February, Helen Flanagan can't wait to rough it in the wild and show millions how different she is in real life, away from her soap character.

Age: 22

Best known for: Playing Rosie Webster in Coronation Street

Career high: Her 12 years on the soap

Love life: Dating Manchester City footballer Scott Sinclair

Jungle phobias: "Jumping out of a plane and spiders"

Missing any special occasion in the jungle? Her sister's 20th birthday

What she will miss most? Her boyfriend

Words of wisdom: "People say you make friends for life and so I am really excited about making some new friends in the jungle. It will be good to discover things about myself too - my different strengths and weaknesses."

"I am fearful of heights. I have never jumped out of a plane and I don't even like rooms high up in a hotel. I will scream if I see a spider at home but we will all be in the camp together and we will all deal with it."
