Helen is passionate about being independent

Helen Flanagan has vowed not to change her image if she becomes a mum.

The ex-Coronation Street star is hoping to start a family with footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair in the near future but won’t let it stop her from being sexy.

‘I like to do lingerie shoots, but to keep things classy,’ says Helen, 23.

‘I’m really interested in photography so I want to get that kind of thing out of the way now I’m 23. It’s just the way that you do it.

‘A lot of Victoria’s Secret models have babies and look beautiful – I don’t think you should not model or not be sexy after having a baby.

‘Yes [I’ll keep up the sexiness after a baby] but I don’t think I’ll be modelling like I am now.’

Helen definitely has no plans to become a full-time mum when she has kids.

‘I think women should always have their own independence, no matter what,’ the actress says.

‘I’m a big believer in that. I’ve always worked solidly. When I broke up with Scott [briefly last year] there was no difference to my lifestyle.

‘I just think a lot of things can happen, so every woman should have their independence.’
