Helen Flanagan on brink of tears after admitting anxiety leaves her overwhelmed with moving house


Helen Flanagan fought back tears as she admitted on her Instagram Story on Sunday that her anxiety is overwhelming her after she secretly moved house recently.

The 31-year-old went on to tell her fans she couldn’t cope with the unpacking of all her boxes, which she still has stacked up in each room and a sickness bug left her weak and unable to look after her children properly all weekend.

The Coronation Street star’s confession came as she disclosed that she had privately suffered from Hyperemesis gravidarum during all three of her pregnancies.

Helen touched her face and stroked her hair and looked to be on the verge of tears as she revealed on Instagram: ‘I’m trying to get on top of the house. I’ve actually moved house recently which is exciting but it has been stressful.

‘I haven’t shared it on my social media. I don’t know,’ she continued.

‘It might sound really silly to a lot of people but sometimes sharing some things on Instagram makes me feel a bit anxious.

‘Anyway we’ve been moving house the last few weeks really and I’m not going to lie. I do feel a bit overwhelmed.

‘Every single room is like towers of boxes and I can’t find anything and organisation is not my strong point.

‘So yeah any tips on organisation or when you’ve moved house on how to basically just get it together. I feel like I just don’t even know where to start really.’ 

Helen shares daughters Delilah, three, Charlie, four months, and Matilda, six, with footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair, 32, and earlier told viewers she’d ‘had a horrible sickness bug all weekend’, which left her struggling to look after her children.

‘Scott’s been away all weekend with football and my mum’s been away. Looking after three young children with the bug has been hard,’ she said.

‘Girls have argued the whole time and Charlie has wanted to be held all the time. Not being a misery but showing a bit of reality.’

Helen also told her followers that she had suffered from the HG illness – Hyperemesis gravidarum – during all three of her pregnancies.

Symptoms include severe nausea, weight loss, vomiting and dehydration due to a rise in hormone levels.

She said: ‘I had HG in all three pregnancies and when I have a sickness bug it does bring it all back. HG is not morning sickness and it’s not something you can just get on with.

The former I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here campmate advised fans that telling someone with HG to eat a ginger biscuit doesn’t help.

‘I get a lot of direct messages from other women on HG. It’s a comfort to know you’re not just on your own.’

‘For me it lasted around three months. Medication worked with Delilah. Nothing worked with Charlie.

‘The worst was 100-per-cent not being able to look after the girls. What worked for me was lots of rest, lots of help with children.’

‘I moved in with my mum for three months as Scott had football. Even though you can’t face it eating little and often.

‘Sipping lemonade worked for me. Medication worked with Delilah. I was ill with girls and a boy. The HG got stronger though in each pregnancy.

‘Your babies are always so worth it and more. Just thought I’d share as I do have a lot of women messaging me about it and you do feel very on your own when you go through it.’
