However, both Helen and Scott spent the Easter holidays in Dubai with their three children, which led fans to believe they were rekindling their relationship.

Whilst in the sunny climate, fans also spotted that the soap star had a ring on her wedding finger. However, Helen shut down the rumours on Instagram by explaining that it was for “comfort” and even tagged the shop she bought it from.

Later this month, Helen is set to appear in an all-star edition of I’m A Celebrity - which airs on Monday 24 April - after coming seventh place on the ITV reality show in 2012.

Whilst filming for the show in South Africa earlier this year, the mum-of-three reportedly seeked relationship advice from fellow campmate and former Countdown presenter Carol Voderman.

An insider told The Sun: "Helen was at a crossroads in her relationship when she went into the jungle this time around.

"Carol became a kind of mother figure to the other campmates and Helen found herself opening up to her.

"She told Helen to follow her heart and put her children first. She advised that staying with someone just for the kids never works out. Of course they’ve got the kids and a huge history only time will tell if it’s over for good."

Helen, who played Sophie Webster in ITV’s Coronation Street, and Scott share seven-year-old Matilda, four-year-old Delilah and two-year-old Charlie.

The footballer proposed to Helen in 2018 and later confirmed that planning for the 2020 ceremony was underway.

However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Helen and Scott were forced to put their marriage on hold - and later made it clear that they had called off the engagement.
