Helen Flanagan is reportedly being lined up for 'Celebs Go Dating'.

The former 'Coronation Street' star - who split from footballer Scott Sinclair in October 2022 after 13 years together - is said to be at the top of the wish list for producers working on the E4 show.

An insider told The Sun newspaper's TVBiz column: "Helen is the perfect candidate for 'Celebs Go Dating' and E4 is hoping that she will agree to take part when they approach her for the new series.

"She is a television pro thanks to her time on 'Corrie' and is incredible glamorous.

"Helen would be the star signing for the show and the production team have put her name at the top of their wish list as they think she would be a hit with viewers."

Although "it's still very early days" when it comes to the cobbles star looking for love again, bosses hope the mum of three - who has Matilda, seven, Delilah, four, and Charlie, 23 months, with ex Scott - could be convinced to give the show a go.

The source added: "Helen only split from Scott five months ago so it's still very early days for her in terms of finding love.

"She is also a devoted mum to their three children and hasn't had time to meet anyone new.

"But the producers think that Helen may be open to dipping her toe back into the dating pool with the help of the programme's relationship experts Anna Williamson and Paul C Brunson."

Producers are ready to "pull out all of the stops" if Helen does take the plunge and decide to sign up.

The insider said: "The show really does try and help the stars find love with people outside of their industry and Helen could take a lot from it.

"They will pull out all of the stops for Helen if she did take part."
