Helen says couple 'truly love each other'

Helen Flanagan has denied that she’s split from her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair.

Reports circulated last week that Helen and Manchester City star Scott, 24, had called time on their tempestuous relationship but the former Coronation Street actress says it’s untrue.

‘It’s my private business, but we haven’t split,’ says Helen, 22.

‘We’re still living together, too. We’re fiery and passionate, but we truly love each other. And when you find someone you really love, you work through your problems.

‘We clash and have ups and downs, like most couples. People hear about it because we’re in the limelight.’

Helen, who has been dating Scott for four years, is pleased that her man thinks she’s smart even though she often comes across as ditzy.

‘Sometimes, when I watch myself on TV, I cringe because I can’t help coming across as girlie and ditzy,’ the I’m A Celebrity star says.

Scott gets so frustrated because he knows I’m intelligent.’
