Helen Flanagan has been struggling with severe morning sickness on and off throughout her pregnancy, and, despite reaching the six month mark, it doesn't seem to be getting any easier for the young mum-to-be.

Taking to Twitter this morning, Helen wrote: "Throwing my breakfast up this morning isn't the one...

"I think it's because I'm tired today."

Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley, who is due to give birth to her own baby in March, was quick to reach out to the 24-year-old and offer her own advice.

She wrote sympathetically: "Awww babe :-( you still taking a good probiotic?"

Despite feeling severely under the weather, Helen took to Instagram to celebrate reaching her third trimester.

The former I'm a Celeb contestant posted a split pic of her and her partner Scott Sinclair when they were kids, under the caption: "6 months we can't wait to meet you x"

Don't the pair look adorable? We bet their little one is going to be ultra-cute… and, while we're not sure if Helen is expecting a boy or girl yet, the soapstar seems convinced that it's a blue one!

Speaking to OK! magazine, Helen said: “Scott’s known I’ve wanted to be a mum since pretty early in our relationship. So when I turned 24 we both felt it was time to finally have a baby.”

“A mum is really everything I’ve genuinely wanted to be. I think it’s the best thing you can be!

“I’m convinced it’s a boy – I love the name Flynn.”

The name Flynn, meaning "ruddy, red haired", is actually a unisex one - so, if Helen proves to be wrong in her predictions, she can always use it for a baby daughter, too.
