Model and actress Helen Flanagan, who announced her pregnancy just before Christmas, has found an unusual cure for her chronic morning sickness… sour ice-lollies! The former Coronation Street actress is reportedly bulk-buying Marks & Spencer’s Colin the Caterpillar lollies as she finds the sour taste settles her stomach.
“Her freezer’s bursting with them,” a source told the Sunday People newspaper. “She hasn’t stopped retching since she found out she was expecting. But the lollies take the edge off the nausea and settle her stomach.”
The model and former I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant is expecting her first baby in June with Manchester City footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair. “I love morning sickness! Nausea is my favourite!” she joked on Twitter.
But before Christmas, the 24-year-old revealed she’s thrilled with her pregnancy. “We are both so happy and excited xxx,” she tweeted.
