Helen Flanagan is embracing single life and is back on the dating scene following her split from footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair last year.
The former Coronation Street actress, who recently had a boob job and her lips plumped, was spotted on celebrity dating app Raya last week and pals have told us she’s opening up to the idea of a new romance.
“She’s not actively looking for a new relationship – it’s just a bit of fun and an ego boost,” a source close to Helen revealed. “Friends have told her to put herself on the market and that’s what she’s doing.
"She’s a mum of three, so she doesn’t actually have that much time to go out on dates. But she’s enjoyed a couple here and there and is dipping her toe into the dating pool.
“It’s a new chapter for Helen – she’s had her boob job, she’s had her lips plumped and she’s feeling good about herself. It’s helped her confidence.”
The source added that dating is “very different” for 32-year-old Helen these days, as her main priority now is motherhood.
“She was with Scott for a long time, so she’s getting used to it again after all these years. She’s also a mum, so she wouldn’t just jump into a relationship. She’s putting the children first,” they explained.
“Friends think it’d be nice for her to meet someone who also has children but there’s no rush and she’s not looking for anything serious right now.”
On Helen’s Raya profile, which it is thought she uploaded while on a recent trip to Paris, her job is listed as “actress and social media” alongside a string of glamorous selfies.
The star, who played Rosie Webster in the ITV soap, split from Bristol Rovers winger Scott, 33, in October after 13 years, with sources claiming they hit a “rough patch” over the summer.
It reportedly came shortly after Helen returned from filming I’m A Celebrity All Stars in South Africa.
The former couple, who got engaged in 2018 and were due to tie the knot next year, are parents to Matilda, seven, Delilah, four, and Charlie, who turns two this month. “Helen and Scott are still on very good terms and are co-parenting the best they can,” our source added.
Earlier this year, Helen revealed she had surgery after becoming unhappy with the way her boobs looked. “It’s just something I did for myself, I really wanted to do it for my confidence,” she told her Instagram followers in January.
“Obviously, I very much am for body confidence, and very much for supporting other women – but supporting women in all choices that they decide to do.”
Just weeks later, she also showed off her enhanced lips after getting her pout plumped up.
“I’ve got big lips but my bottom lip was bigger and because I’ve been overlining my top lip, I wanted a little bit of filler to even them out,” she explained.
