Helen Flanagan wants to pose for playboy like Marilyn Monroe

London: Model-actress Helen Flanagan says she is keen to emulate her icon Marilyn Monroe, who stripped off for Playboy`s very first issue in December 1953.

The 23-year-old `Coronation Street` actress said she enjoys modelling and has fun while doing it, reported Daily Mirror.

"I`d love to do Playboy. I mean Marilyn Monroe did Playboy and she`s my idol. I`ve always enjoyed modelling - you can play with it and have fun and all my work is tasteful," Flanagan said.
