Helen Flanagan has been crowned the Sexiest Woman in all of the United Kingdom.

The plaudit comes in the latest issue of lads mag FHM which also granted the model cum actress cum celebrity the privilege of an exclusive cover shoot.

The pouting Helen has had a roller coaster year. First came her appearance on I’m A Celebrity, then her first ever FHM cover shoot and now a trip to the hospital to visit boyfriend Scott Sinclair who was taken ill at the weekend with a blood-clot on his shoulder.

She has also been troubled by the arrest of friend Bill Roache on an alleged rape charge, taking to twitter to explain that she can just not believe such allegations about a person that she respects so much.

Will FHM readers care about her angst…probably not. They’ll just want to see the full photo-shoot.
