She announced she was expecting her second child in December with partner Scott Sinclair, already proud parents to a two-year-old daughter Matilda.
But Helen Flanagan’s second pregnancy has reportedly caused a lot of bother for the Coronation Street bosses, as she can no longer fit into her famed skimpy outfits.
The 27-year-old actress, who plays Rosie Webster on the ITV soap, reportedly needed all new clothes as her pregnancy progresses, a source told The Sun.

The source said: ‘Helen’s bump is growing by the day. We’ve had to get an entire new wardrobe for her. There will be no boob tubes or miniskirts for Rosie.’
However it seems that Helen is looking forward to wearing slightly more comfortable clothes during filming, as he posted a throwback snap of Rosie sporting one of her signature looks on Instagram.
She captioned the post: ‘#tbt to Rosie’s skimpy wardrobe, bring on the maternity leggings and baggy tops to hide the bump.’
Representatives for Helen and Coronation Street have been contacted for comment.

Helen announced her second pregnancy just before Christmas, and in her big reveal with OK! Magazine she announced the struggles she has been through thus far.
Speaking candidly, the star said the pregnancy news was a ‘surprise’ shortly before explaining: ‘I had hyperemesis gravidarum; it lasted for five weeks… I was just so ill’.
Aside from her woes, her beau Scott said: ‘It was a little bit of a surprise! I was away in Dubai with my family. Helen couldn’t come as she was filming. She found out on a Thursday but had to wait until I got home five days later to tell me.’

Helen added: ‘I did three more tests just to make sure it was correct! I had a very strong feeling I was pregnant, so I wasn’t surprised.
‘I was very happy, but I was a bit taken aback as this baby wasn’t in the plan. I knew I would feel a lot better once I’d told Scott.’
Helen and footballer boyfriend Scott, 28, have been together since 2009 but he now hints that they will get married ‘pretty soon’.
