Helen fears snaps could be shared online

Helen Flanagan is worried that saucy private pictures of her could end up online.

The ex-Coronation Street star’s phone was stolen when her house was raided by burglars earlier this month and she’s concerned that sexy snaps stored on the device could get leaked.

Helen’s mortified at the thought of the photos and texts going on the web,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘She doesn’t want her solo amateur stuff bouncing around the net forever.

‘It’s all very well doing sexy poses for mags in a studio. But daring shots taken in the privacy of her home are very different and were never taken to be made public.’

It’s thought that the photos include shots of Helen, 22, posing topless and others of her wearing skimpy underwear.

The iPhone also contains private texts to boyfriend Scott Sinclair.

Helen moved out of the home she shares with the footballer after discovering flirty messagesScott insists a friend sent – to TV presenter Donatella Panayiotou on his phone.

Helen recently thanked her Twitter followers for their support during the tough times.

Thank you for your kind messages of support about the burglary,’ the actress Tweeted on Monday.
