Helen Flanagan is battling her morning sickness with ice lollies.
The ex-'Coronation Street' star - who is expecting her first child in June with footballer Scott Sinclair - is reportedly suffering terribly from the pregnancy side effect and is snacking on Marks & Spencer's Colin the Caterpillar lollies to "settle her stomach".
A source told the Sunday People newspaper: "Her freezer's bursting with them. She hasn't stopped retching since she found out she was expecting.
"But the lollies take the edge off the nausea and settle her stomach."
Earlier this week, the 24-year-old actress jokingly tweeted that she nausea was her "favourite".
The model also took to the social media site in late December to confirm the couple's happy news.
She wrote on Twitter: "Me and Scott are expecting our first baby in the summer. We are both so happy and so excited xxx (sic)"
Helen is believed to be "thrilled" about the impending arrival, despite struggling with her sickness.
A source said at the time: "It's a much-wanted pregnancy which makes it all the sweeter. Helen is so thrilled. She was bursting with excitement.
"It hasn't been easy for Helen. She's been feeling poorly."
