Helen Flanagan makes memories with kids as she prepares for first Christmas after ‘split’

Former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has spent the start of the festive season making some memories with her daughters Matilda and Delilah, as she prepares for her first Christmas after her reported split from fiancé Scott Sinclair.

The mum and daughter trio attended the the launch night of Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland, where they donated some toys to Lidl Bear's Toy Bank.

Helen, 32, cut a casual figure as she donned a black crop top and leggings, which she paired with a light brown teddy jacket and a pair of matching boots.

Matilda and Delilah sported matching blue jackets emblazoned with teddy bears, red leggings and brown boots.

Posing for photos, Helen promoted the Lidl Bear's Toy Bank, where individuals can drop off unopened toys and games which will be gifted to local children in need of support.

These can be donated either at the Hyde Park event, or to over 940 Lidl stores nationwide until 16 December.

Helen is thought to be newly-single after "splitting" from fiancé Scott Sinclair, with whom she shares her two daughters and son Charlie.

Earlier this week the actress attended the star-studded 2022 ITV Palooza, where she was asked how things were going following the split, responding with: "Good! Life is good!"

And as she continues Christmas preparations, Helen has revealed that she's already put up her tree and decorations.

Taking to Instagram she shared a video of the tree and said she “knows she’s early”, but because she was “so late” with decorating last year, she wanted to make up for it.

The massive tree is decorated in purple and grey hues and features ribbons and baubles, as well as being flanked by large lanterns.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: "I'm the only one around my house who has got their Christmas lights up.

"We're probably [going to be] at home, I'm having a new dining room which I'm very excited about, so yes, Christmas at my house."

Helen and her footballer fiancé, 33, are believed to have recently hit a rough patch in their relationship, prompting them to call it quits.

The Sun reported that Helen removed her engagement ring in September, and that she has told "those close to her" she's no longer in a relationship with Scott.

They said: “Helen has removed her engagement ring and told those close to her that she is no longer with Scott. They hit a rough patch in the summer and after Helen came back from South Africa it ended for good."

“Helen and Scott have committed to co-parenting their kids as a family unit," an insider told the publication.
