    CORRIE STAR HELEN FLANAGAN HORRIFIED AFTER MUM-SHAMERS TROLLED HER INCREDIBLE BIKINI BODY 8 WEEKS AFTER GIVING BIRTH

    HELEN Flanagan was left horrified after cruel mum-shamers trolled her incredible bikini body eight weeks after she gave birth to son Charlie, it has been reported.

    The 30-year-old star posted the stunning snap to her social media page last month, but some lashed out at her trim figure.

    An insider has now revealed that the Coronation Street favourite was "hurt" by the nasty comments, with some claiming she was making other mums feel bad about their own post-baby bodies.

    The source shared: "Criticism is hard for Helen as she's openly admitted to being insecure and is very self-aware.

    "The photo was a happy moment with her girls and she did feel content in her body. She got a lot of really lovely comments but the negative comments from mummy-shamers still crept in and they do hurt."

    CORONATION STREET AND EMMERDALE WILL ALSO FEATURE ON DEMAND FOR A MONTH DURING EURO 2020

    CORONATION Street and Emmerdale will both move to ITV Hub as a weekly binge-worthy boxset during the Euro 2020.

    The two ITV soaps will drop their entire week's episodes online on the Monday so fans can watch whenever they want and avoid the disruption that comes with the football tournament.

    Beginning June 14 the soaps will premiere early on the ITV Hub. This will be alongside showing the episodes on the main ITV channel each week, giving viewers a wider choice of how, where and when they’d like to view.

    Coronation Street boss Iain MacLeod said: “There are loads of key rivalries across the Cobbles this summer and I think it will be like following your favourite team – there will be times where they let you down, make mistakes and maybe score a few own goals.

    "But you’ll back them till the end and woe betide anyone else who criticises them. Given how exciting the stories are, it’s great that fans will have the chance to binge watch all the episodes on ITV Hub at the start of each week – as with football, sometimes when it’s an exciting face-off, you really want extra time.”

    “If you’re with Sharon, you need to make an excuse and come straight home,” she said. 

    “Please Rita, it’s important. Call me when you get this.”

    But as Jenny left the message, Sharon appeared behind her. Jenny demanded to know where Rita was, and Sharon told her she was “lying horizontal” which saw Jenny fly into hysteria screaming: “What have you done with her you evil witch?!”

    The evil schemer – who is played by actress Tracie Bennett in the ITV soap – was desperate to keep her evil scheme quiet and took drastic action to stop Jenny from spilling the beans.

    LESLIE ASH TO APPEAR IN CASUALTY AFTER 11 YEARS OFF SCREEN

    LESLIE Ash is set to appear in BBC medical soap Casualty after a staggering 11 years off screen.

    In one of the longest breaks in soap history, she is coming back as Vanessa Lytton – but this time as a patient.

    Leslie, 61, last played the character in Holby City and will enjoy a return to the character in its crossover show Casualty.

    She told OK! magazine: "I played a wonderful character called Vanessa Lytton, who was the CEO of Holby City. She brought quite a bit of trouble to the hospital and ended up having to leave.

    "I thought I’d seen the back of her until I was recently asked to come back for an episode."

    EASTENDERS ON DEMAND

    EastEnders fans will be able to binge-watch all of the week’s episodes in one sitting — in a telly first for Albert Square.

    Four helpings of the BBC One soap will be uploaded to iPlayer on a Monday morning for three weeks, starting in a fortnight.

    The EastEnders schedule will be ­shuffled about until well into next month because the soap clashes with games in the delayed 2020 Euros football tournament.

    Bosses say the “exciting” box-set development will put viewers “in control of their Walford watching”.

    ROSS KEMP TEASES RETURN OF GRANT MITCHELL (CONTINUED…)

    Kicking off the interview, host Adil Ray asked Ross if being in the pubs to promote the initiative had him wishing he was back in the BBC One soap that first catapulted him to fame – with his character famously the son of Queen Vic landlady Peggy.

    Ross coyly replied: "You never say never."

    And as the chat drew to a close, the presenter mentioned again: "I haven't seen you act for a while, have you put that on the backburner? Are you looking at scripts?"

    The actor-turned-documentary-maker smiled as he quipped: "All I will say is I've got a mortgage like everyone else, so whatever comes my way!"

    EMMERDALE: PLAYING IT STRAIGHT?

    Actor Lawrence Robb has revealed Emmerdale bosses are yet to decide on scheming Mackenzie Boyd’s sexual orientation.

    Soaps fans have become obsessed with Mackenzie’s flirting with Aaron and are convinced it means the pair are going to get together.

    But when talking to Inside Soap, Lawrence said Mackenzie was more ‘in the moment’ and compared his character to Charity Dingle – who had relationships with men and women.

    He told Inside Soap: “It’s interesting, as Sam asked him recently, ‘Are you gay?’ and Mack said ‘I can be whatever I want to be’, so he’s not really anything at the moment.

    “I don’t think the writers are going down a route of Mack’s straight, bisexual or gay, as I think he’s just free. 

    “And I don’t think that Mack’s really interested in anything romantic as of yet.”
