For the first time since their separation, Helen Flanagan revealed all as to what led to the end of her relationship with Scott Sinclair. According to reports it was all due to the snapping of her engagement ring.

The ITV soap star is believed to be“very spiritual” and saw the incident as a bad omen. After speaking to a psychic medium and working hard on the relationship, Helen decided to call off the wedding as she saw it as a sign she should not get married.

Speaking to reporters at ITV Palooza, explaining what life is like after her separation with the Bristol Rovers winger, she said: “Good! Life is good! I’m the only one around my house who has got their Christmas lights up. We’re probably [going to be] at home, I’m having a new dining room which I’m very excited about so yes, Christmas at my house.”

Helen Flangan first appeared on ITV’s Coronation Street as Rosie Webester in 2000. She was later nominated for “Best Dramatic Performance from a Young Actor or Actress” at the British Soap Awards in 2006. Her ex-partner Scott Sinclair is currently amidst the domestic English Football League One season with Bristol Rovers, where he has netted one goal in five appearances.
