Pals of Helen Flanagan have poured cold water on gossip claiming she has got married in secret earlier this year.
The former Coronation Street star has referred to beau Scott Sinclair as her "hubby" on social media more than once with fans speculating about their status.
The 30-year-old and her footballer fiancé set the rumour mill swirling – but friends say the big day is yet to come.
However, a source close to the actress says she is chomping at the bit to get hitched.
They couple have been together since 2009 and have been busy planning their special day for some time.
She got speculation swirling that the couple had got hitched in private
She has long planned to marry Preston North End forward Scott with the pair hoping to walk down the aisle in 2020 before Covid struck and wrecked their plans.
The source told New! "Helen is desperate to get married.

Helen Flanagan fuels rumours she's secretly married 'hubby' Scott Sinclair
"She basically considers herself married anyway. She always calls Scott "hubby" but she does want to make it official,
"She would really like to put the ring on her finger. It will be happening soon."
The pal added: "Helen has always battled confidence issues but Scott makes her feel complete."
Helen has hinted a wedding abroad, but with travel restrictions still in place things are even more messy.
But the new mum's big day is yet to happen
A source claims the actress is in no mood to hang around after having to cancel in 2020
She said on Loose Women: "Me and Scott have been together since 2009, we’ve been together forever, We’ve kind of done things the wrong way around.
"We’ve had three children first. The thing is, we’re really excited about the wedding but it’s something to look forward to as well, we’ve had our children first."
The couple welcomed their third child, son Charlie, back in March – with the pair also having five-year-old Matilda, and two-year-old Delilah.

Helen Flanagan 'hurt' after trolls mum-shamed her incredible 8 weeks post-baby body
The star looked exhausted as she cradled their newborn in her hospital bed, as dad Scott sharing the black and white selfie on social media.
He wrote: "I couldn’t ask for a better gift on my Birthday, what a blessing!!! welcome to the world son. Charlie Scott Sinclair 25/03/21."
Helen, who shot to fame when she joined Corrie at the age of nine playing Rosie Webster, was apparently "hurt" when trolls shamed her astonishing post-baby body just eight weeks after giving birth.
While she was flooded with plenty of praise, there was also jealous trolling about how Helen was making other mums feel bad about their post-baby bodies — something the actress had never set out to do.
Helen was said to have been heartbroken reading the cruel comments on her social media page, especially as the photograph had captured such a happy moment with her daughters.
She said two months before the birth that they pair won't have any more children.
Telling the Sun in January, she said: "I always really wanted four children, but after the hyperemesis this time, I could never go through it again.
"So the decision about having more children after this one has been taken out of my hands, really."
