But now she’s single, it is something Helen has been talking about. The source also mentioned Helen hasn’t had any official meetings about her return.

Has Helen Flanagan split from Scott Sinclair?

Last month it was reported that Helen and her fiancé Scott Sinclair had split after 13 years together.

Helen and Bristol Rovers footballer Scott, began dating in 2009 and have three children together.

They got engaged in 2018 but it was reported that Helen received a chilling omen in the months which followed.

Helen is said to have split from Scott after her engagement ring broke.

Seeing this as a ‘bad omen’ for the future of their relationship, Helen sought advice from a psychic medium.

“Helen and Scott really tried to work on their relationship but ultimately she saw the ring breaking as a bad omen and one that meant she shouldn’t get married,” another source told The Sun.

However, the pair remain committed to their three children.

They continued: “Helen and Scott are committed to co-parenting their kids, even if they are no longer a couple.”
