Fans will notice that in the show the star was wearing the engagement ring, leading many to become confused by the timing of the split. However, Helen confirmed that the pair had split in July after the star returned from filming I'm a Celebrity in South Africa.

More recently, Helen was again seen wearing her engagement ring on a trip to Dubai in the Easter holidays, but the actress addressed the reason behind the decision on her social media. Posting on her Instagram Story, she wrote: "My ring is @laraheems_jewellery I always wear it as I find it a comfort as I'm used to having a rock on my finger."

Why did Helen Flanagan and Scott Sinclair split?

The specific reasons why Helen and Scott called time on their relationship have not been made public. But reports did state that their relationship was put under strain due to Scott's career and not spending much time together.

Helen and Scott began dating in 2009 and share Matilda, seven, Delilah, four, and Charlie, two, together. The couple got engaged when Scott popped the question on a trip to Disneyland Paris.
