Helen Flanagan mum-shamed for inappropriate photoshoot with kids

Helen Flanagan showcased her trademark sexy style on a recent magazine photoshoot, pouting and playing up to the camera while her voluptuous boobs spilled out of her bustier. However, the former Coronation Street star’s behind the scenes video footage quickly attracted negative attention when she shared it with her one million Instagram fans.

She fondly revealed that she had taken her “babies” with her to work – daughters Matilda, eight and Delilah, five, plus two-year-old son Charlie – but some seemed appalled. “Your babies? Which ones – your children or the ones sticking out from your upper body?” one fan quizzed, before claiming there was “no warmth” between her and the kids.

“It’s not for you to ‘look sexy’. You’re with your children – be natural and be their mother,” the follower continued. “Where’s the cuddles, where’s the smiles and where is the love? The kids look ignored because the camera has your full attention.”

A second follower chimed in to say: “No Helen this is so wrong. You’re dressed inappropriately for a kids’ photo shoot. I love you to bits but you’re coming across desperate.” A third echoed: “Sorry but there’s hardly any family bond here, just Helen pouting at the camera.”

Meanwhile, a fourth retorted of the former Rosie Webster actress: “Still attempting the sexy poses whilst doing a shoot with kids, weird.” Another urged: “Don’t mix sexy shots with your children present, it’s just so tacky.”

Helen did receive support from some fans who urged the trolls to leave her alone, and argued that looking stunning wasn’t necessarily incompatible with motherhood.

“This is lovely, leave the woman alone, she’s doing no harm. Jealousy is an awful thing,” one devotee cautioned. Another declared: “If she wants to pout let her pout. It’s no one else’s business!”

Helen has been a vocal advocate of women empowering themselves through their sexuality for a long time, although it’s a topic which has caused division among fans of the ITV star.

She was open about losing her confidence after breastfeeding three kids caused her boobs to sag, and admitted regaining a feeling of womanhood has been important for her.

Speaking of her lift surgery, which took place earlier this year after her stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, she lamented to OK! Magazine: “My boobs were ruined from by breastfeeding. I had [the surgery] done for me, for my confidence, and I wanted to be honest because that’s my connection with other women.”

Helen is currently single but experimenting with dating, following a split from the father of her three kids, Scott Sinclair, whom she now says she “loves but doesn’t like”. She and the former Bristol Rovers footballer are committed to co-parenting together.
