Coronation Street actress, Helen Flanagan, has slammed people who are “mean to mums” in an emotional Instagram post.

The former Blackburn Westholme School pupil posted a rant to her one million Instagram followers after an incident which took place last week.

She said: “I recently had my period which probably explains some of my mood.

“I am quite good at controlling my emotions and keep quite bust but I always have an emotional outburst when I am due on my period.

“I was really annoyed last week because. I won’t go into too much detail but I hate it when mums are made to feel uncomfortable.

“I go everywhere with my kids, flown with them, got on trains and hotels, restaurants. I go wherever I want to go.

“I don’t like it when you get people being rubbish towards you because you have kids and you’re a mum, basically giving you evil [looks].”

Earlier this month is was reported that Helen split from her footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair after 13 years.

Reports suggest the actress, best known for playing Rosie Webster on the ITV soap, removed her engagement ring last month.

She was seen partying without it weeks after she finished filming for ITV’s I’m a Celebrity All Stars in South Africa.

Helen, 32, and Scott, 33, began dating in 2009 and have three children together.
