Helen Flanagan: 'My Boyfriend Doesn't Want People Looking At Me In My Underwear'

Helen Flanagan has won an army of male admirers thanks to her saucy Twitter pictures, but she has revealed her boyfriend Scott Sinclair is less of a fan.

The former 'Coronation Street' star - who was crowned the UK's sexiest woman by FHM readers last week - has said the Manchester City player doesn't like other people looking at his girlfriend in a sexy way.

When asked by OK magazine if Scott would ever upload pictures of her on Twitter after she posted a picture of him sleeping, she said: "My boyfriend is gorgeous, he has an amazing body and I'm proud of him. Although I don't think Scott would be too keen to post a picture of me in my underwear. I don't think he wants people looking at me like that."

The couple have been at the centre of split rumours recently, after a report claimed that they were over "for good".

However, Helen has since insisted that they are still together, but admitted problems in the relationship.

She told MailOnline: "People always say they never see us together, but I can't get him off the couch after training. I try to get him to go out with me and he's like, 'No, I'm tired'. So we're very, very different people. He's very chilled and level-headed and I'm just not!

"We just get on each other's nerves sometimes, like everyone."

Despite their problems, Helen has gone on to say that the couple are planning to start a family around Christmas.

She told The Mirror: "I've always been really broody. We're thinking Christmas time - we've talked about it and everything."

Helen was recently at the centre of another controversy when she said that convicted paedophile and former 'It's A Knockout' host Stuart Hall "deserved respect".
