I’m A Celebrity star Helen Flanagan has certainly been through the wringer this week as not only was she held hostage by armed raiders in her home in Cheshire, it’s also been alleged by a tabloid newspaper today that her boyfriend, footballer Scott Sinclair, has been sending “a string of sexy messages” to TV presenter Donatella Panayiotou!
The paper claims that he sent Donatella – who, back in 2010 narrowly escaped being killed by a crazed gunman who was apparently trying to assassinate her, but instead murdered three revelers at an event she’d organised – a text which read, “U would look so much better with everything off”.
The Sun adds, “The England Under-21 winger also urged her to send sexy photos and tell him ‘dirty’ stories.”
However, neither party has commented on the paper’s claim, so we can only stress that these are allegations.
Meanwhile, the Sunday People reports that Helen and Scott will not be returning to their house in Prestbury, where of course the robbery took place, and will instead be moving into a new home in Berkshire.
A source close to Helen said, “She was absolutely petrified when she saw the burglars coming in and she no longer feels comfortable in her own home.
“It took so much courage for her to go back there on Friday because she was still really worried…
“Because of Scott’s footballing commitments, she’s not sure she could ever stay there overnight on her own so it makes sense to make the move down south to Berkshire.
“Helen has been keen to move nearer to London as she sees that’s where the work is for her.
“Scott’s family aren’t that far away so it is the perfect solution.”
Helen has been staying with footballer Wes Brown and his wife Leanne – who owned the mansion in Cheshire that Helen and Scott lived in – until Scott returned from a trip abroad.
Here’s a reminder of a news report about the break-in…
