The former 'Coronation Street' star detailed how she got a “sinking feeling” when she couldn’t find her seven-year-old daughter Matilda in the supermarket.

The 32-year-old actress told New! magazine: “I must have turned my back for a second.

“I remember having this horrible, sinking feeling. I always keep an eye on my kids but I couldn't see her for about a minute.

“There's nothing worse than that, it's the worst, worst feeling ever.”

They are good with that but you need eyes in the back of your head.”

Last month, Helen spoke about she handles raising her three kids with her footballer ex Scott Sinclair, 34 - who, along with Matilda she has four-year-old daughter Delilah and two-year son Charlie - after they split last year after 12 years together.

She told the Sun newspaper: "I co-parent with Scott. We were together for a long time. So he lives with his mum in Bristol, and I live in Manchester with the kids. I get on really well with Scott's mum.

"I was with Scott aged 19-31, so that's why I get on so well with his mum. So honestly, it makes my life so easy because we hang out together.

"It's really nice. It's pretty drama free as I get on really well with her.

"The kids see their dad all the time, they see their nana a lot. We're always in Birmingham a lot to meet with the kids half way.

"The kids have an amazing time when they are with me too. I have a friend that helps me, because obviously I work as well.

“I work nearly every day so I do have a friend that comes to help me because well, I'm not a superwoman. We do mum things, the kids all have different activities too.

“Then when they go to their dad, they have a lovely time with him. They've just been to Dubai actually for a week with their dad and had a lovely time.

"So I missed them when they were away, but it was a shock to my system when they were back. "

The former ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’ contestant also explained she feels like mums can’t “ever win”.

Helen said: "As women I don't think we can ever win. I've got friends who don't work at all, stay at home.

"Then they feel bad they are not working. Then I've got friends who work all the time and they feel guilty because they are working all the time.

"I just feel as a woman you can never win. I do feel like the happier you are as a mum, the better it is for your child."
