Corrie’s Helen Flanagan reveals ‘bad omen’ led to split with fiancé Bristol Rovers footballer Scott Sinclair

Bristol Rovers winger Scott Sinclair had been in a relationship with Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan since 2009 but announced they had split up last month - here’s why.

Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has revealed the real reason why she split with ex-fiancé and Bristol Rovers footballer Scott Sinclair. The pair announced the end of their relationship in October.

Having been together since 2009, the couple got engaged in 2018 and initially confirmed an official wedding date. They have three children together and are now said to be “committed” to co-parenting.

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.”

The end of her relationship with Scott Sinclair was confirmed shortly after he signed with Bristol Rovers. The 33-year-old has only managed to feature in five games since, scoring his first and the match-winning goal against Peterborough United last weekend.
