The couple are loved-up again

Helen Flanagan admits she struggled to cope during her brief split from Scott Sinclair.

The ex-Coronation Street star moved out of the house she shared with Scott last summer after TV star Donatella Panayiotou claimed that she’d received flirty texts from the footballer.

‘It’s been a really difficult year for me,’ says Helen, 23.

‘I was all over the place when Scott and I split up for six months last year, but we’re really happy now.’

Helen moved to Birmingham to be with West Bromwich Albion player Scott, 24, back in January and they’re even contemplating starting a family in the near future.

‘Things are great with us at the moment – we might try for a baby in the summer,’ the actress tells The Sun.

‘I’ve always said I want children and the time might be right soon. But let’s wait and see what happens.’
