Police were called to the home of British actress Helen Flanagan on Monday (17Jun13) after armed men broke into her house.

The former Coronation Street star was at home in Cheshire, north west England, when three men gained entry and confronted her, before making off with jewellery and a cell phone.

Flanagan's representative insists the 22 year old is "coping well" after the incident.

Police visited the property on Tuesday (18Jun13) to interview the star and collect evidence.

A Cheshire Police spokesperson says, "We are investigating a burglary at a private address in Prestbury reported at 23.50pm on Monday 17 June."
