Model Helen Flanagan has been left shaken and in tears after three armed raiders broke into her home and confronted her last night.
The men burst into the Cheshire home she shares with her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair shortly before midnight.
The raiders fled from the property with jewellery and a mobile phone.
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 spacious house 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 incident happened after Helen was seen out in Alderley Edge yesterday afternoon.
