Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan celebrated the Easter weekend with her family.

The Rosie Webster actress, 33, took to Instagram to share with her followers a wholesome snap of herself and her son in celebration of the Easter festivities.

The soap star rocked a floral yellow sundress which showed off the flared detail at the bottom. 

‘Happy Easter It’s my little boys and nephews 3rd birthday party today,’ she penned.

This comes after Helen took to her Instagram stories to say thank you for all the kind messages she had received, as well as explaining that she had been nervous to open up about her mental health struggles.

‘I wanted to say thank you so much for all your lovely messages,’ she said in the video.

‘It probably sounds really silly but I was a bit nervous about my post yesterday, I felt a bit anxious which probably sounds silly. But yes thank you for the messages.’

Helen recently opened up about being diagnosed with psychosis following a ‘really bad’ reaction to her ADHD medication.

 ‘I felt really not great in my head over Christmas and I didn’t really feel that much different when I took the kids away for new year,’ the actress revealed in a candid Instagram post.

‘I felt terrible, so I was due my theatre tour which I was excited about so when I came back from holiday I thought it was best for me to take some medication so I’d feel better and be able to cope better with being a working single mum of three,’ she continued, before explaining that she was ’emotionally struggling’ after her split from partner Scott Sinclair in 2022.

She went on to explain that she is in a much happier place now, and that she had worked on herself a lot, praising therapy for helping her on her journey.
