Helen Flanagan plans to start her family before she ties the knot

Helen Flanagan is a huge fan of Kate Middleton and was fixed to her TV screen when Kate walked down the aisle with Prince William at Westminster Abbey in 2011.

Former Coronation Street star Helen hopes for an equally romantic affair when she exchanges vows with footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair, 24 – only on a much smaller scale.

‘People imagine I would want a massive wedding but I don’t,’ confides the 23-year-old.

‘I’m a Kate Middleton obsessive and I loved her wedding. It was the biggest wedding in the world, but actually it was just about her and Prince William.’

Despite having a good idea what she’d like for her big day, Helen isn’t planning her nuptials and is in no rush to become Mrs Sinclair.

‘I don’t want mine and Scott‘s to be about just one day, I want it to be about the rest of our lives together,’ Helen tells TV Magazine.

‘First I want a baby with Scott, then we will get married and the wedding will be simple, spiritual and meaningful.’
