HELEN Flanagan has admitted to a co-parenting struggle with her ex Scott Sinclair, as she called in friends for support.
Actress Helen, 33, shared an emotional post to her Instagram Story yesterday, where she was seen rubbing her eye in bed.
She wrote, "Never a fan of when my kids go to their dads as I always just like them with me even though it's chaos.
"My friend got me to come out though and out my dressing gown."
Meanwhile, Scott took to his own profile to share a beaming snap with their brood – Matilda, eight, Delilah, five and Charlie, two.
The Coronation Street alum and her former fiancé Scott, 34, parted after 13 years together in 2022.

Helen and Bristol Rovers footballer Scott started dating in 2009 and have three children together.
And in a pointed dig at her former flame recently, Helen re-shared a quote on her Instagram Stories.
It read: “Whenever I’m having a bad day I just stop and remind myself at least I don’t have my ex’s name tattooed on my body.”
The news of Helen and Scott’s split emerged three days after Helen was seen dancing with a mystery man at a friend’s birthday party — and only a few weeks after she finished filming ITV’s ITV’s I’m A Celebrity All Stars in South Africa.

A source said: “Helen has removed her engagement ring and told those close to her that she is no longer with Scott.
"They hit a rough patch in the summer and after she came back from South Africa their relationship ended.
“Helen and Scott are committed to co-parenting their kids, even if they are no longer a couple.”
Helen revealed that the pair had not shared a bed for seven years — with Helen choosing to sleep with her children.
The couple’s careers also led to spells living apart.
The source said: “Helen turfed Scott out of their marital bed a long time ago because she co-sleeps with their kids.
“Naturally it put a strain on their relationship over the years.”
Talking about her and Scott’s sleeping arrangements, Helen said last year: “It would be nice to actually share a bed and not feel like flatmates.
