Helen is close to Coronation Street star

Helen Flanagan might have played Brooke Vincent‘s big sister in Coronation Street but she’s more like the younger sibling in real life.

The blonde star has revealed that Brooke, 21, once had to come and fetch her when she’d a few too many drinks.

‘I’m very good friends with Brooke,’ says Helen, 23.

‘I remember there was one night I was a bit emotional with everything that had happened to me. I was personal shopping in Harvey Nichols and thought I fancied another drink.

‘I ended up in the Living Room [club] and got a bit drunk. She had to come from filming to rescue me!’

Brooke, who plays Corrie’s Sophie Webster, has previously admitted that she’s protective of Helen.

‘[She’s my] big-little sister – she’s older than me, but I try and look after her,’ says Brooke.

‘She’s lovely, Helen. I care for her as my friend. When I read things in the paper I think, that’s not my friend.’
