• Thieves burst into her property shortly before midnight last night

It appears that Helen Flanagan may have come unstuck on Twitter after letting slip that she was at home without her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair.

Hours later, three men wielding a screwdriver and a saw burst into the house, confronting Flanagan and a female friend before fleeing with jewellery and a mobile phone.

The men burst into the Cheshire home she shares with her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair shortly before midnight.

A spokesman for the former Coronation Street actress confirmed she was left ‘shaken’ by the incident but is ‘coping well’.

The incident happened after Helen, 22, let slip on Twitter that she was in the large detached home alone as Manchester City star Scott was away.

She wrote: ‘Super tired today, which makes me emotional, sensitive and mental!
‘Can’t wait to have my boyfriend home.’

The raiders confronted two woman who were inside the home at the time, a police spokesman said.

The incident happened after Helen was seen out in Alderley Edge yesterday afternoon.

Police were seen outside the property this afternoon, and have been interviewing Helen as well as taking evidence from inside.

A spokesman for Cheshire Police said they were treating the incident as an aggravated burglary.

‘We are investigating a burglary at a private address in Prestbury reported at 11.50pm on Monday 17 June,’ he said. ‘Thieves broke into the detached property and stole items of jewellery and a mobile phone.

‘The investigation into the incident is continuing. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cheshire Police.’

Helen’s boyfriend Scott is a 24-year-old winger who plays for Premier League side Manchester City.

It has been reported that Helen is planning to stay with a friend for the next few days before making a decision about whether or not she can return to live in the house.
There have been rumours that Helen is set to split from her long-term partner Scott after he allegedly had a fling with a mystery woman while on holiday in Monaco.
