Helen Flanagan Targeted By Armed Robbers
Actress held hostage in her own home as raiders steal jewels...
Helen Flanagan is reported to have been the victim of an armed robbery at her home.
And police are said to be investigating whether a message she posted on Twitter about being at home alone could have prompted the criminals to mount the terrifying raid.
Three men wielding a screwdriver and a saw broke into the luxury home she rents with footballer BF Scott Sinclair in Cheshire - threatening the 22-year-old and a female pal with violence before locking them in a bathroom.
They escaped with a phone and jewellery worth thousands of pounds in the raid, which took place shortly before midnight.
She had tweeted that morning: "So super tired today — which makes me emotional sensitive and mental ha?? Can’t wait to have my bf home."
Scott is reported to be away on a trip with club Manchester City.
And The Sun claims that Helen, who is now staying with friends, has said she may never return to the house where the robbery took place.
We told you yesterday how Scott had been reported to have ended things with Helen.
