Helen Flanagan took to her Instagram story to open up about her “grown up” seven-year-old daughter who is asking to download TikTok and wear crop tops.

The former Coronation Street actress, 32, is currently holidaying in Dubai with her three young children; seven-year-old Matilda, four-year-old Delilah and two-year-old Charlie.

Speaking about her eldest, after a day at Atlantis waterpark, Helen said: “It’s so weird this time because it’s like we’ve come on holiday, and the change in Matilda is just crazy, like she’s so grown up now. She is just so grown up.”

Explaining that they’ve had a few fall outs whilst on holiday, the Bury-born actress added: “Apparently I’m embarrassing. I’ve been told to go away a few times. I always call my kids ‘baby’ like ‘come on baby’, and I’ve been told not to call her baby again, and not to call her princess.”

Helen also revealed to her one million followers that the seven-year-old has been begging her to permit having a TikTok account.

Matilda is obsessed with her ‘phone’ at the moment which Helen explained is in fact an iPod, adding: “I would never let my seven-year-old daughter have a phone.”

The mother-of-three has been refusing to let the youngster wear crop tops, despite “mithering” her to be allowed. She said: “Yeah, and mithering me to wear crop tops. I am like ‘you are not wearing a crop top’.”

When speaking about her other children, she said: “Delilah’s been really good, she’s coming out of her tantrum stage.”

The actress, who played Rosie Webster in ITV’s Corrie, added: “Charlie is just like so beautiful. He’s like a proper little boy, just like pure boy energy.”

Helen shares her three children with her ex-fiance Scott Sinclair, who is also in Dubai.

The Bristol Rovers footballer has shared a series of snaps to Instagram showing that he is enjoying time in the United Arab Emirates country, but it has not been revealed if they have rekindled their relationship.

However, Helen has been spotted wearing her ‘engagement ring’ again, after she called off the engagement in October last year.
