Coronation Street actress, Helen Flanagan, visited an East Lancashire pumpkin farm recently for some family-friendly Halloween fun.

The former Westholme School pupil visited Mrs Downsons Farm in Clayton-le-Dale.

In the pictures, Helen’s family can be seen choosing their pumpkins and the kids were filmed taking a ride in a wheelbarrow.

Helen’s fiancé and Preston North End winger, Scott Sinclaire, also made an appearance.

In one beautiful shot, Scott (32), Matilda (6), Delilah (3) and Charlie (6 months) are pictured at the farm with smiling faces.

In another picture, 31-year-old Helen wrote: “Fab day at Mrs Dowsons pumpkin picking”.

A spokesperson for Mrs Downsons Farm said they were “thrilled” to welcome Helen and her family to the farm earlier this month.

They added: “They are regular farm park visitors and fans of the farm.

“We’ve had lots of celebrity visitors to the farm recently including the Radford family, which is always exciting.”

Back in the September, the Radford Family headed down to the farm after hearing great reviews about it.

They even documented their trip in a YouTube vlog where they captured one hilarious moment on camera.

In the clip, parents Sue and Noel, can be seen “trying to distract” kids from watching two alpacas that were ‘playing together’ at the farm.

Mrs Dowsons Farm park is a popular place to go pumpkin picking in the north west. It costs £9.95 for adults and children to go pumpkin picking – and this includes the price of a pumpkin as well as farm admission.

The farm has more than just your bog-standard orange pumpkin and there are 12 varieties of pumpkin to choose from.

The park also offers an immersive Halloween experience and visitors can interact with scarecrow actors as they pick their pumpkins.

You can book your ticket for the pumpkin picking event online:
