Helen Flanagan has admitted things are still a little crowded in her bed as two of her three children don't want to sleep on their own.

The former Coronation Street star has three children with footballer Scott Sinclair, but says that the older two still sleep in their bed.

Asked by a fan how to tackle children waking up multiple times a night during an Instagram Q and A, Flanagan, 31, said: "Charlie has a great routine now, bed at seven and he sleeps through in his cot - wakes up at seven and naps at one.

"I haven't had the waking up in the night but Charlie is my only baby that wanted to sleep on his own. The girls still sleep with me after me doing their room up so lovely for them."

Flanagan and Sinclair's daughters Matilda and Delilah are seven and four, and they welcomed son Charlie in March 2021.

It isn't the first time that Flanagan has opened up about her family's sleeping arrangements as back in May, she said that she and fiance Sinclair had not shared a bed for seven years.

"I'm doing my house up at the moment (hence why most of my pics are taken in lounge area as I haven't got round to the rest).

"One of my next jobs is mine and Scott’s room and after seven years it would be nice as a couple to actually share a bed and not feel like flatmates!. I’ve always just co slept with the kids out of easiness and just basically so I can sleep and just function in the morning."

Flanagan and Sinclair got engaged in 2018, but are yet to marry as she says they have been too busy with their children and decorating their home.

And things could get even busier for the actor as she's rumoured to be taking part in 2023's all-star spin-off of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, which brings back memorable former contestants for a new camp in South Africa.
