The 27-year-old star - who plays Rosie Webster - will take a break from the cobbles later this month ahead of giving birth to her and her footballer partner Scott Sinclair's second child, and though she's "definitely" going back to the soap after her maternity leave, she isn't sure how long she'll be taking off yet.

She said: "I will definitely return, I'm just not sure when.

"I just need to see how everything goes with the baby.

"I didn't want to have the pressure of putting a date on going back to work. My girls need to be my priority."

Helen - who also has two-year-old daughter Matilda with Scott - has been living in Manchester with her parents while shooting 'Corrie' but she's looking forward to getting back into a "routine" with Scott in Glasgow, Scotland.

She said: "I really like Glasgow. It's a great city, the people are friendly. I have a lovely friend up there too.

"I'm looking forward to seeing Scott because I do miss him. I'm looking forward to having a bit more of a routine and being a family unit again...

"My mum is going to try and come up every couple of weeks.

"Sometimes I would work long hours and just get home knackered so it will be nice for us to spend some quality time together."

Though she's excited about having another baby, Helen is worried she's in for a "rude awakening" because Matilda has always been so content and slept well.

She added to OK! magazine: "Matilda has been amazing and slept through the night since she was a newborn.

"I hope I don't have a rude awakening with this one!

"I haven't experienced looking after a baby when I'm deprived of sleep.

"Scott's mum has told me all her babies were good sleepers too."
