Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has opened up about a recent experience with her son where she says she was 'mum-shamed'.

Flanagan, best known for her role playing Rosie Webster in the much-loved soap, is currently on holiday with her three children and friend.

Taking Charlie, two, Delilah, four, and Matilda, seven, away can't exactly be the most peaceful of holidays considering their ages.

However, the actor has been updating fans on social media and it appears she was having a good time up until now.

The actor took to her Instagram stories to explain her recent ordeal while on holiday and enjoying a bit of grub.

Flanagan said: "I cannot tell you how horrendous Charlie’s tantrums have been.

"I mean I’ve got two children and I know what babies can be like and the tantrums and stuff, but when I’m saying he screamed the restaurant down yesterday - he just screamed and screamed.

"There was no consoling him at all, he literally just screamed the whole restaurant down. It was a really, really, really busy restaurant - I could feel there was a table, just sensed it."

She concluded: "This is my third child - I don’t think they were being that nice to be honest about my parenting, even though I was really trying my best to console Charlie."

However, Flanagan did say that not all fellow holiday makers were so judgemental, as one girl was actually 'really nice'.

In this rather testing moment, the girl apparently approached Flanagan for a hug and even offered to help her in the moment.

Flanagan split up with long-term partner Scott Sinclair in October 2022 after 13 years together.

On Instagram last year, Flanagan spoke about the struggles of the split and being a single mum.

Alongside a photo of her crashed out, she said: "I’m frazzled. I find being a mum hard. I feel tired most of the time and like I have to split myself into three, but just love them so much so would never change it for the world and just give them all I’ve got every day."

We will not see Flanagan on Corrie for a while, but she does appear on the all stars version of I'm a Celebrity, set in South Africa, which is set to debut on ITV later this month.
