Cor­rie He­len hits back at on­line crit­ics

Manchester Evening News - - FRONT PAGE -

CORO­NA­TION Street ac­tress He­len Flana­gan has hit back af­ter be­ing ac­cused of ‘moan­ing’ about her chil­dren.

He­len, who has two young daugh­ters, Matilda and Delilah, an­noyed an In­sta­gram fol­lower af­ter open­ing up about her ex­pe­ri­ences as a mum.

The Cor­rie favourite was told to ‘buckle up and get on with it’ - but He­len says she’s be­ing hon­est so that her fol­low­ers can iden­tify with her. The soap star posted the row on her In­sta­gram sto­ries for oth­ers to see.

He­len was told: “Stop rant­ing about your kids! Buckle up and get on with it. There are some peo­ple who are un­able to con­ceive then you have peo­ple like your­self moan­ing. It’s part of the process. Get on with it and stop rant­ing which is what you’re do­ing.”

He­len, from Bury, replied: “Ac­tu­ally I am hon­est on my In­sta­gram so other mums can iden­tify with me and feel less on their own.

“I am sup­port­ive of other women.”

He­len, 29, shared on her In­sta­gram sto­ries a photo of her­self look­ing glum with the words: “To get any peace at the mo­ment I have to lock my­self in the toi­let... any other mums do the same?”

In an­other frank post she shared a pic­ture of a choco­late cake with the cap­tion: “Delilah screamed so much in the car to­day I was so stressed I had to stop at Costa drive thru and in­hale this.”
