Former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan is recovering after a break-in at her home which left her "very shaken" but unharmed.

The actress, who also appeared in I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! last year, had raiders at her home in Cheshire late last night.

Police are now investigating after jewellery and a phone were taken from the property she shares with footballer Scott Sinclair.

A spokesman for the 22-year-old TV star said: "We confirm the home Helen shares with Scott was burgled last night.

"Helen is naturally very shaken but is unharmed. The police have been called and are investigating."

Flanagan appeared for many years as Corrie's Rosie Webster but left the soap last year. She was recently voted the top UK star in the annual FHM 100 sexiest women poll.

Yesterday afternoon she posted a message on Twitter to say she was looking forward to the return of Sinclair.

"So super tired today - which makes me emotional sensitive and mental ha?? Can't wait to have my bf home," she wrote.

Police confirmed they were looking into the incident which happened in Prestbury at about 11.50pm last night.

In a statement, they said: "Thieves broke into the detached property ... and stole items of jewellery and a mobile phone. The investigation into the incident is continuing."
