The actress is tricked by magician Ben Hanlin
Helen Flanagan was terrified when she spotted a spooky ghost during a photoshoot in an old house.
The ex-Coronation Street star, 23, screamed: “What the f*ck is that?” and ran away screaming after seeing the frightening ghoul at the window.
A freaked-out Helen – who was wearing a frilly white dress – called for her agent Vivien and said she wanted to ‘get the f*ck out of this house’.
Luckily for Helen, she didn’t actually lay eyes on a phantom – magician Ben Hanlin had set her up for a Halloween special of his ITV2 show Tricked.
Helen had been sent to the property on the premise of doing a magazine shoot and Ben was posing as a cameraman capturing backstage footage for the publication’s website.
‘Helen was genuinely terrified. I didn’t expect her to run from the house,’ Ben tells Mail Online.
‘When she realised afterwards that the ghost was actually created by magic, she took it really well. She was a good sport.’
