Rosie Webster puts the 'Cor' in Coronation Street, flashing the flesh in a series of saucy photos as she tries to make it as a glamour model. The teenager, played by Helen Flanagan, shells out for a portfolio of sexy shots, which can be viewed on the soap's website (opens in new tab). Her daring outfits include a thigh-skimming cheerleader's costume, which she wears in her new job as a Cherry Vodka promotions girl, and a vampy corseted dress which shows off plenty of cleavage. Rosie's new career starts on screen on Friday night, when she shocks her parents, Kevin and Sally, with her new uniform. The outfit comes complete with roller skates, so Rosie can glide round the bars of Weatherfield, firing shots of vodka from a water pistol. But show insiders say her plans go awry as her photos appear in unlikely places. Undeterred by the experience, Rosie decides she needs a boob job in order to further her chances, unaware that her mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Flanagan, who took skating lessons for her new storyline, said: "This is the perfect career for Rosie. She is like so many girls out there who read the celeb mags every week and want to be like Katie Price or celebs from shows like Big Brother. "She is playing to her strengths. She was never cut out to be a businesswoman. "Playing Rosie is fantastic fun, I get to do all the things I would never dare do as Helen! The roller skating was tricky and I did have to have a stunt double for some of the scenes." Click here to watch’s weekly soaps video preview, the Soap Scoop (opens in new tab)
