Helen told fans on her Instagram stories: “So Matilda still likes to sleep with mummy, it’s just something we’ve always done, really. It’s just something… obviously if she’s happy then that’s always been my priority, you know.

“But I think now I’m going to have my third and what have you, so we’re just gradually working on that. I think it can be a very very hard one though.

"Delilah has always really liked her cot but Matilda has always liked to stay with me, which I’m finding too hard at the moment because of my back pain.”

However, the expectant mum is hopeful that she’ll be able to get Matilda into her own bed in time for the new arrival.

She explained: “She’s always bunk beds though so I’m hoping that will be some kind of motivation for her to maybe sleep on her own. I mean I love the cuddles and everything, because she always likes to stay with me.”


The star went on to tell her fans that she’s determined to get ahead with her Christmas shopping this year and already feels more organised than usual.

The star, who was once a contestant herself, then went on to comment on the launch of this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here and said that she thought it was “cool” that it is happening in Wales.

Helen went on to say that she thought that Giovanna Fletcher is a “genuinely lovely person,” and also threw her support behind fellow ex-Corrie actress Beverley Callard.

The star said that she thought it was great the show has been able to go ahead despite coronavirus restrictions and added it was “something to look forward to in the evenings.”

Recently, she told fans she hadn’t been enjoying her latest pregnancy as much as her previous ones as she’s been unwell. Although, the actress is convinced she's having another girl.

The star, who was hospitalised with sickness, said: "This time round I just don't feel like I'm enjoying it the same. Maybe because it's my third and I just feel super tired and I know it's going to be full on.”
