Helen Flanagan frolics in the pool with baby Delilah in sunny Dubai

Baby love hits new heights as Helen Flanagan lifts up tot Delilah to plant a kiss on her lips.

The Coronation Street star, 28, only gave birth in June to her second child with Celtic footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair, 29.

Yet as Helen splashed about in a blue ­bikini on a beach in Dubai she was clearly back in great shape.

In the soap she plays dozy Rosie Webster but swapping rainy Weatherfield for the sunshine looks like a smart move.

The former I’m A Celeb campmate hit back last weel after fellow mums told her she’d committed a potentially dangerous parenting faux pas – by weaning her baby daughter too early.

Helen came under fire from worried mums, who pointed out that medical advice is to keep babies on milk alone until they’re six months old.

She replied, "I’m only giving her little licks of the spoon not the whole packet and on the baby packages it says from 4 months onwards and no mum shaming please that I didn’t boil the fruit. I am still feeding her myself and will do as long as she needs."
