Helen Flanagan Moves In With Footballer Wes Brown After Burglary At Her Cheshire Home

Helen Flanagan has reportedly moved in with Sunderland footballer Wes Brown after becoming too scared to return home following a burglary which saw her confronted by three armed robbers.

The former 'Coronation Street' star is staying with Wes - who owns Helen's £2.2m Cheshire mansion she shares with Manchester City player Scott Sinclair - and his wife Leanne in the wake of the robbery.

A source told The Sun: "Helen's too traumatised to go back," a source said. "Wes owns Helen and Scott's house, so thought it's the least he could do."

Helen was locked in a utility room during the burglary, and previously said she thought she was going to die during the traumatic experience.

The Mirror claimed she told a friend: "I don't feel safe in my own home anymore. I could have been killed.

"It was the most frightening experience of my life. I was absolutely petrified."

The burglars got away with valuable jewellery and a mobile phone, just hours after Helen tweeted that she was home without boyfriend Scott.

A police investigation has since been launched.
