Helen Flanagan turns daughter's birthday around after tearful start

Helen Flanagan managed to turn her daughter's special day around after it got off to a bit of a tearful start. Former I'm A Celeb campmate Helen celebrated her eldest daughter Matilda's eighth birthday in style earlier this week, sharing the celebrations with her Instagram followers.

But Matilda's birthday did not get off to the best start as her younger sister Delilah, who turned five last week, wasn't too impressed that it was Matilda's birthday and not her's. Sharing a video of her youngest daughter in tears as the birthday girl tried to comfort her, Helen wrote alongside a string of laughing and skull emojis: "When Delilah realised today was Matilda's birthday.

"She has a very bad day yesterday as it was Matilda's party. Now, today," she added with another crying laughing emoji. Thankfully, Delilah appeared to have calmed down later on in the day, as the family celebrated Matilda's birthday together.

Helen then got all dolled up in a white and blue floral dress for a special evening of fun with her firstborn, who she shares with ex-fiancé, Bristol Rovers winger Scott Sinclair. The soap star, 32, danced around her kitchen with her hairstylist and best friend Kelvin Barron, before getting the birthday girl involved.

"Birthday baby," Helen captioned the clip, as she celebrated with Matilda. The eight-year-old looked just like a princess in a pretty white dress and a sparkling headband as she prepared to celebrate her day with her famous mum.

Mum-of-three Helen, who is best known for her former role as Rosie Webster in Coronation Street, then got Delilah and two-year-old Charlie involved in the fun as she picked up her son for a quick boogie. Meanwhile, Kelvin, who has been helping Helen out with the children since her split from Scott around a year ago, made sure Delilah was feeling happy after she was feeling left out.

Helen and Matilda went out and celebrated her special day at Menagerie, an industrial-chic restaurant in Manchester which is popular with celebrities. Helen later uploaded a snap of the birthday girl having a whale of a time in an Insta-worthy bathtub, surrounded by gold and pink balloons.
