Helen Flanagan has admitted she "really wants to go back" to 'Coronation Street' because she misses the show "so much", but she will only head back to Weatherfield "when the time is right"
Helen Flanagan misses 'Coronation Street' "so much" and "really wants to go back".
The 30-year-old star is currently pregnant with her third child with fiance Scott Sinclair, and while the Rosie Webster actress misses her on-screen mum Sally Dynevor (Sally Metcalfe) and her on-screen sister Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster) – who is also on a break from the show – she will only return to the ITV soap "when the time is right".
She said: "I miss 'Corrie' so much, I really do.
"I miss everything about it – the excitement of filming, I miss Brooke, I miss Sally. I really do. I grew up on the Street as well.
"I really, really want to go back, but when the time is right.
"You know what it's like after you've had a baby, if you're lucky enough to stay at home you want to have that bonding time with them."
And while Helen hasn't been acting with Sally for a while, she is constantly reminded of her when she watches Netflix show 'Bridgerton', which stars the 57-year-old actress' daughter Phoebe Dynevor as main character Daphne Bridgerton.
Speaking on 'Lorraine', Helen added: "I'm so obsessed with 'Bridgerton' – it is amazing.
"Phoebe is just like her mum. Every time I'm watching it I just see so much of Sally in Phoebe.
"I just love the show, she's so beautiful in it.
"If you look at pictures when Sally was younger as well they just look exactly the same."
Helen – who has kids Matilda, five, and Delilah, two – recently admitted her current, third pregnancy will be her "last".
She wrote on Instagram: "This is definitely my last pregnancy. I had Matilda at 24 and I wanted my children close together and it just feels right for me. I would never want to go through the hyperemesis again, it wouldn’t be fair on the children I already have and I want to give each child as much attention as each other. I thought I’d feel sad if I knew I was carrying my last but the hyperemis has been a blessing as it’s took that away. (sic)"
