Flanagan set for beauty spa show
Former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan is to learn about waxing and pampering treatments for a new celebrity TV show set in a beauty spa.
The actress - who was subjected to numerous stomach-churning challenges on ITV's I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! - will be joined by contestants including ex-Shameless star Jody Latham, former boyfriend of Tulisa Contostavlos.
Also in the Channel 5 show, called Celebrity Super Spa, will be chef Rustie Lee who first found fame almost 30 years ago on TV-am, and has since stood as a candidate for Ukip.
Six contestants will learn a variety of techniques as they are put through their paces at the Liverpool salon run by the city's well-known hairdresser Herbert Howe.
They will be getting to grips with "vajazzles", intimate waxing, fish pedicures and tattooing. Also taking part in the show will be James "Arg" Argent from The Only Way Is Essex, Most Haunted presenter Yvette Fielding and another TV chef, John Burton Race.
Herbert has tasted TV fame on previous shows including the docu-soap Shampoo.
Helen, 22, was shaken by a break-in last month at the home she was renting in Cheshire. Earlier this year she was voted the sexiest woman in the UK by readers of FHM magazine.
