Pregnant Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan, 30, showed off her baby bump as she gave her Instagram followers a sneak peek into her upcoming autumn underwear collection. The Corrie star, who plays Rosie Webster on the ITV soap, was inundated with compliments from her fans after speaking out about the “vicious circle” she has experienced with extreme morning sickness.
Helen shared a snap of herself in her purple underwear sitting in a chair in her kitchen for the perfect picture opportunity.
The star, who is expecting her third child with her partner Scott Sinclair, wore her blonde tresses in loose curls while looking away from the camera for a candid shot.
In view of her 955,000 Instagram followers, Helen captioned the post with: “#bts of my @pourmoiltd shoot for my autumn edit glam @makeupbyashleyuk @jaybirminghamhair #noedit.”
Soon after Helen shared the pictures online, fans were quick to tell the star how “lovely” she looked.

Helen then explained how it has made her feel “isolated” as she can’t leave the house.
She continued: “One of the worst things about HG is how isolating it is.
“I couldn’t go out, I couldn’t cook, even talking on the phone for too long would make me ill. One thing that helped keep my spirits up during this time was @peanut. Being able to open the app and read other women’s experiences and messages of support was a great comfort and helped me know that I’m not alone.”
Many fans and mothers soon commented on Helen’s post with words of encouragement for the star.
One said: “Thank you, Helen, for sharing this and opening up another how you feel! I also like how you think of others such as IVF.
“I’m 11 weeks with my 7th round of IVF 10 years trying to conceive and I love it how celebrities can feel they can be open and thoughtful of others too. All the best!”
Another added: “I had HG with both of my children from start to finish. It’s so draining!!
“I was in and out of hospital topping up my fluids etc. I hope yours has eased now and you can enjoy your pregnancy xx.”
