Helen Flanagan shares pic of rarely-seen sister with sweet birthday message

Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan, who recently teased a possible return to the soap, has shared some snaps of a day out at Manchester's Christmas markets with her rarely-seen younger sister Jessica.

Helen and her three kids joined Jessica and her son to celebrate her birthday and judging from the pics, it certainly looks like they had fun.

Posting a selfie on her Instagram, 32 year old Helen wrote: “such a nice day planned with my sister for her birthday.”

The sisters then posed with their heads through a fun carnival cut out at the market, with Jessica in a cartoon ketchup bottle while a grinning Helen posed as a hotdog.

Helen then shared a series of clips of the whole family enjoying a meal out, jokingly sharing a pic of her son looking unhappy, captioned: “when you're fuming your cousin steals your iPad.”

The Corrie star then shared a snap of two pink cocktails the two mums were enjoying.

The family day out comes not long after Helen, who’s best known for playing Rosie Webster on Coronation Street, split from her fiance of 13 years, Scott Sinclair.

The two reportedly parted ways in October 2022 when Helen started being regularly seen without her engagement ring.

In November 2022, newly-single Helen shared that she often suffers from "mum guilt" when she's forced to leave her kids – even when it's just one night.

Helen recently joined the cast of the upcoming I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! All Stars in South Africa. The series will air on ITV next year.

Helen first appeared on I’m A Celeb in 2012 and soon became a fan favourite.

The star was voted to take on a terrifying seven Bushtucker trials in a row but failed to attempt some of them as she battled various fears.

In 2020, Helen shared that she was still haunted by some of her experiences on the show, writing on Instagram: “Just the thought of when Ant and Dec come on and say ‘For this challenge’ – It just gives me the fear…

"When they used to explain things to me about the trials, I’d panic because I’d be so scared… I wouldn’t even process because I’d be so worked up.”

However, the star added that despite her struggle with the trials, the show was still an “amazing experience.”
