Helen Flanagan has been left "shaken" after armed thieves broke into her home and stole her belongings, it has been reported.

The former Coronation Street star was apparently alone in her house in Cheshire late last night (17 June) when she was confronted by three raiders.

According to The Mirror, the men managed to make off with some of Helen's possessions before she was able to contact the police.

A Cheshire Police spokesman told the newspaper: "We are investigating a burglary at a private address in Prestbury reported at 23.50pm on Monday 17 June.

"Thieves broke into the detached property and stole items of jewellery and a mobile phone."

Earlier in the day, Helen told fans on Twitter that her footballer boyfriend, Scott Sinclair, was not at home.

She said: "So super tired today :( which makes me emotional sensitive and mental ha. Can't wait to have my bf home x."

Reveal has contacted Helen's rep for a comment.

Helen has been busy working on various projects recently.

Last month, Helen was pictured in central London launching the latest campaign for animal welfare organisation PETA. The star wore a tight corset for the occasion and smiled brightly for the cameras.

The actress, who starred in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, has also revealed that she is branching out into the music industry.

On Sunday (16 June), Helen told fans on Twitter: "Loving shooting my music video, very exciting."

It seems her admission got her followers rather excited. One replied: "Music video????????!!!!!!!!!?????????"
