Helen Flanagan hints at Corrie return 4 years after leaving Weatherfield behind

She said goodbye to the cobbles four years ago, but former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan has teased that she could make a return to the ITV soap.

Helen played Rosie Webster on Corrie from 2000 to 2012, before making a brief return in 2017.

And speaking exclusively to OK!, the 32 year old says that she isn’t ruling out stepping back into Rosie’s shoes.

“I’d love to go back to Coronation Street at some point,” she says of her time on the show, which saw her nominated for British Soap Awards for Best Dramatic Performance From A Young Actor and Villain Of The Year.

“I think it’s obvious that everything I do work-wise just works around the kids. So yeah, probably when Charlie gets a little bit older, maybe.

"But I think while he’s young and Charlie’s like my last – unless I have another one when I’m a lot older. So I really want to enjoy that baby stage. I don’t want to miss out.”

Helen exited the soap in 2018, just before she had her second daughter, Delilah, four.

She and footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair are also parents to daughter Matilda, seven, and son Charlie, 18 months.

They have been together since 2009 and got engaged in 2018 in Disneyland Paris and are now busy planning their 2024 wedding.

And it seems for now at least that their family is complete, with Helen admitting she doesn’t think she could face going through another pregnancy after suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum.

The medical condition sees women experiencing extreme sickness, nausea and weight loss, which the Princess of Wales among those who has suffered from it.

“I had hyperemesis gravidarum in all my pregnancies,” says Helen. “I was hospitalized with Charlie.

"The condition gets worse with every pregnancy. So it would be very, very unlikely that I would have a baby.

"If I was ever to have a baby again, it would not be for a very long time, just because you can’t do anything when you have hyperemesis.

"I had to move in with my mum and dad because Scott had training and someone had to take the girls, as I was literally bedbound for around four months. I had such guilt even though I couldn’t help it and it wasn’t my fault.”

Helen is keen to open up about the condition because she believes people need to have more awareness about it.

“I was so poorly with it that I wasn’t able to be a normal mum,” she adds. “I couldn’t take them to school, I couldn’t drive.

"It’s tough mentally as well. It’s nice to talk about it because I do still get a lot of messages about it. Because a lot of women do struggle with this and there’s not enough awareness about it.”
