Helen Flanagan reveals MORE bad luck as her replacement car breaks down, days after crashing her own car – and just hours after flooding her bathroom
Helen Flanagan’s streak of bad luck has continued as she revealed another accident on Tuesday.
Just hours after she shared a video of a major leak in her kitchen after flooding her bathroom, a stressed Helen was back on Instagram to announce that her car had broken down.
The star was driving a courtesy car after crashing her own car over the weekend.
Looking teary, Helen got behind the wheel in the short clip and insisted: ‘This is not normal, I broke down in my replacement car.’ She captioned the video: “Why am I such a mess?”
She also shared a selfie of herself waiting for help as she joked, “It was like I’m an AA Gold member, come get me.”

Monday evening is the former Kroningsstraat star, 33, took to Instagram to share that she was suffering from her flooding nightmare after crashing her car last week.
And in addition to the flood and feared crash, the actress also revealed that her television broke that same night.
The mum-of-three, who shares Matilda, seven, Delilah, four, and Charlie, two, filmed the madness for her followers to see.
Matilda and Helen were seen filling cups of water and throwing them out the window to catch the water that flowed out.
And if that wasn’t enough, later that evening Helen said her children had broken the television – and brought her father over to repair the damage.
Despite experiencing three unfortunate disasters at the start of her week, Helen remained in good spirits and kept light of the situation.
She captioned the first video: “Mum left the bath on,” as she filmed Matilda frantically trying to help catch the water from the ceiling.
Helen later said: ‘We’re like throwing buckets (of water) out the window’.

It comes after Helen walked away shocked but unhurt after crashing her £70,000 Audi.
She had been playing pumpkins with her three children when the unexpected accident happened.
On Saturday evening, Helen explained on Instagram that her father had to pick up the children from her ex-fiance Scott Sinclair because she couldn’t drive.
She said: ‘My father just went to pick up the children. I couldn’t go, I couldn’t drive… it wasn’t a big deal, but I crashed my car.
“The kids were fine, I was fine too, but I was playing pumpkins and all I did was back into a piece of wood because I couldn’t park to save my life.
‘I thought I had scratched my car, but I took the whole hood off. Wow…and my car is new too.”

Helen also talked about the struggle of being separated from the children while they spent time with their father.
She said: ‘I’m getting my kids back today so I’m excited about that, they’ve been away for six months.
‘I really miss them when they’re gone. It always feels very strange.’
Speaking about starting a new school year, Helen confessed that she prefers her children to be with her. She says: ‘I love my children when they are not at school, but I like it much more when they are at home. I love it when they are with me.’
She also hinted that there were some “exciting” things in the pipeline, revealing that there was “exciting work news on the way” but she couldn’t share it yet.
