Helen Flanagan used to live in hotel
Helen Flanagan used to live in a hotel.
The 'Coronation Street' actress, her long-term partner Scott Sinclair and their 15-month-old daughter Matilda were forced to take up residence in a big establishment in Scotland for just under two months because they couldn't find anywhere to live when they first moved up there.
Scott - who plays football for Celtic - said: "We were living in a hotel for the first month and a half."
Helen added: "I loved the room service and the spa. I didn't want to leave but Scott had enough of it. I suppose it's a bit much living in a hotel all the time."
Scott explained: "We were looking for a house but I wanted my own space which I couldn't have living in a hotel."
The couple - who have been together for over seven years - are now living apart while the 26-year-old actress films her scenes for 'Coronation Street' but, although it's been tough being away from each other during the week, Helen thinks the separation is "healthy" every now and then.
She told OK! magazine: "I'm commuting between Glasgow and Bolton. But I try to get back to Scotland as often as I can because I want to see Scott and Scott wants to see Matilda...
"We've been together over seven years. We love spending time together but it's nice for us to do our own things as well. I think it's healthy to do that in a relationship."
Scott added: "We're not going to be apart for too long anyway."
