Helen was a regular on the show from 2000 to 2012 and then she went on to reprise her role in 2017 for one year.

She then went on to act out her last scene in 2018 and then headed off on maternity leave.

The soap star – who is mum to Matilda, five, Delilah, two, and newborn Charlie – admitted during her segment on the show that she was planning on heading back at one point, but then fell pregnant again.

She told hosts told hosts Ruth Langsford, Janet Street Porter, Coleen Nolan and Brenda Edwards: "It's really funny because as soon as my fiance moved back to Preston, to play for Pretson, I was in talks with Corrie about going back.


"Then I found I was pregnant a few days later. And I had to say in my meeting I was pregnant!

"So I was going to go back, then I fell pregnant with Charlie.

"But he's the best thing ever."

Ruth then asked if she'd like to go back when her kids are a little bit older, to which Helen replied: "I'd love to go back, I grew up on the show and I do miss the excitement…


"But your children are only young for such a short time I'm just really enjoying them being young and being at home."

The mum-of-three took over the role of Rosie Webster from Emma Collinge in 2000.

After 12 long years, Helen decided to leave the show to pursue other interests – and starred in the likes of I'm A Celebrity, Celebrity Super Spa, Holby City and Celebrity Wedding Planner.

Within that time frame Helen also gave birth to her first child Matilda in 2015.

In 2017 the actress returned to Corrie, but then took maternity leave after falling pregnant with her second child.

She gave birth to Delilah in June 2018.

Then in March 2021 the star welcomed her first son into the world, Charlie.

Helen shares her bundles of joy with professional football player Scott Sinclair.

The pair have been together since 2009 and got engaged on May 31, 2018.
