Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has revealed she had to be rescued by the AA after her car broke down whilst she delivered PPE.

The actress talked about the incident on her Instagram stories.

She told her followers: “So I broke down on the motorway today, I’m delivering some PPE and anyway I’ve broken down. But the AA are coming, I’m near a farm, I’m completely safe.

“I just spoke to my little girl on the phone and I literally can’t believe she’s going to be five next month but I just love the age that she’s at.

“She was like, she’s just so cute, she was like ‘mummy, I love you, are you okay?’ She’s just so sweet.”

Helen continued: “But yeah, hopefully the AA come soon.”

Later Helen posted an update. Alongside the picture of the AA van, she wrote: “So, car doesn’t look good but amazing service from @theaa_uk.

“I was two hours away from dropping off the PPE and Darren from @theaa_uk is travelling all the way to drop the PPE off @scrubs4heros. Thank you.”

“I’m trying to work out when I can go back. I don’t know when it’ll be. It could be next year but I’m not sure.

“It depends on my girls. My youngest is 16 months. Obviously when you’re a mum your kids come first. So it’s about finding the right time to do things. Being on a soap means you have a pretty busy schedule.”
