Helen will start her maternity leave at the end of the week after filming her final scenes at Corrie as Rosie Webster.

Sally Dynevor, who plays her on-screen mum, told Lorraine on Tuesday how much she is going to miss her.

“I will miss her so much, she’s such a treasure,” she said. “We cried so much the other day. She’s still got a scene to do on Friday but I am going to miss her, she’s such a little sweetie.”

She added that she’s sure the crew will be happy to see the back of her baby bump since it often disrupted filming.

“The crew will say ‘oh sorry, we have got to go again because we can see too much of the baby bump’ but there is only so much you can do to hide it! They do a good job,” she said.

Helen has said she hopes to return to Corrie but for now she’s looking forward to being a mum again, even if her second baby wasn’t planned.
