Helen Flanagan reveals 'sad' reason she won’t be spending Christmas with kids

Helen Flanagan reveals 'sad' reason she won’t be spending Christmas with kids

It will be her first timing spending the big day without her children

Helen Flanagan has revealed the reason why she won’t be spending Christmas with kids for the very first time.

The 33-year-old Coronation Street actor, who shares three children, Matilda, seven, Delilah, five, and Charlie, two, with her footballer ex-partner Scott Sinclair, 34, opened up about her plans over the festive period.

Explaining a little more about how she navigates the co-parenting situation, Helen detailed her Crimbo plans which do not involve her three little ones.

Helen and her ex-fiancé Scott parted ways last year after 13 years together.

Speaking to Closer, the TV star said her kids will be spending December 25 with their dad and their grandma in Bath which is a little under 200 miles - or about five hour away - from her home in Bolton.

"My children really miss their daddy and they're very close to their nanna, so they're going to spend Christmas with them," she told the outlet.

Corrie star Helen Flanagan explained why she won't be spending Christmas with her three kids.

"I won't have them for about four days. It will actually be the first Christmas that I don't have my children."

Although she said she'll feel 'really sad' when she spends time away from her kids, Helen added that she'll be getting them back after the big day and will be taking them on a lush winter holiday for the New Year in Bali.

She also opened up about how she's handling co-parenting on Lorraine this morning, saying: "I feel like with co-parenting it is a journey."

The mum-of-three continued: "My kids just love their daddy so much and they are going to him for Christmas for four days.

"Scott is working in Bristol and he plays football. Then I'm going to go to Bali for 10 days with them for New Year."

It comes after boxer David Haye’s girlfriend, Sian Osborne, appeared to 'snub' Helen amid rumours of their new romance.

The boxer, 43, and 31-year-old Sian, who have been an item since 2020, have reportedly welcomed a number of other women into their coupling this year after being open about 'expanding' their relationship.

The mum-of-three opened up about how she's navigating co-parenting.

Helen and David 'reconnected' after first crossing paths over a decade ago when they both appeared on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! in 2012 together.

A source close to Helen, who played the character of Rosie Webster on the ITV soap, told The Mirror: "Helen reconnected with David earlier this year. They got on like a house on fire and have been messaging a lot since.

"Helen and Sian have also met and hit it off straight away. Helen's a very open-minded person and all three got on well. Helen has had some difficult dating experiences since becoming single but is really enjoying David's company."

Tyla has previously reached out to David Haye, Sian Osborne and Helen Flanagan's representatives for comment on the reports.
