However, the Coronation Street actress was relieved to find out she had developed a water infection instead.

The 27-year-old revealed this week in OK! Magazine that she is expecting her second child with Hoops star boyfriend Scott Sinclair.

The star, who has a two-year-old daughter Matilda with Scott, said: "I have just been really poorly. I couldn’t go into work and do any filming. I had hyperemesis gravidarum; it lasted for five weeks. 

"It doesn’t sound like a long time but I was just so ill. Luckily it cleared up at 10 weeks. I know some women have a horrific time and end up in hospital for nine months, so I was lucky, but it was horrendous."

"I did end up having to go to hospital here in Glasgow. I was there for a good few hours and they put me on a drip. I had some scans, fluids and anti-sickness injections. I was so poorly at this point and was prescribed some tablets." 

"There was some concern that I might be having an ectopic pregnancy, but I’d actually got a water infection."

In the joint interview with the celebrity magazine Scott revealed the baby news was a surprise.

He said: "It was a little bit of a surprise! I was away in Dubai with my family. Helen couldn't come as she was filming. She found out on a Thursday but had to wait until I got home five days later to tell me."

Helen added: "I did three more tests just to make sure it was correct! I had a very strong feeling I was pregnant, so I wasn't surprised."
