It was revealed earlier this year that Helen had decided to take a step back from the relationship and seperate from her long-term partner.

The couple had three children together – Matilda, seven, Delilah, four and Charlie, one.

However, Helen was keen to prove that all was well between the exes as she took the children to watch the game.

She shared a loved-up snap with her daughter as she captioned the image: “Watching daddy @scotty__sinclair.”

Scott, who plays for Bristol Rovers, was likely bursting with pride to have his family turn up to the match to support him.

The proud father has previsouly shared images of his children accopanying him onto the football field, referring to them as his ‘little mascots’.

The kids kept wrapped up warm from the cold winter nights in matching bright red coats and wooly hats.

In another pic, the two eldest cheekily stuck their tongue out in the playful photo as they flashed a peace sign into the camera.

Adding to the sweet image, Rosie Webster actress Helen said: “Cheering on daddy.”

This reunion comes after The Sun exclusively revealed that thr former couple plan to reunite this Christmas.

Insiders said the pair planned to enjoy the festivities together for the sake of their three children following their split last month.

Pals said they would be together for their children but any talk of a reconciliation was out of the question.

A source said: “Helen’s sole focus is the three children she shares with Scott and they want to make this Christmas as ‘normal’ as possible.

“Scott is a professional footballer so often he won’t be around on Christmas Day because of his fixtures list however Helen and Scott are planning something special for the children.

“Although they’re no longer together they will work together to make it magical for the kids.

“Helen is not open to talk of reconciliation and she just wants them to focus on being co-parents.”
