Helen Flanagan caught shop liftingHelen Flanagan was left terrified after armed raiders broke into her home last night.  

The former Corrie and I’m a Celebrity star had tweeted that she was at home waiting for her boyfriend Scott Sinclair to get back. Thieves took advantage of the situation by breaking into her Cheshire mansion just before midnight, and taking off with jewellery and a mobile phone.

Police confirmed: ‘We are investigating a burglary at a private address in Prestbury reported at 11.50pm on Monday 17 June. The investigation into the incident is continuing. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cheshire Police.’

Helen, 22, was said to be ‘shaken’ this morning, but a spokesman confirmed she is ‘coping well’.
