Many believe that Swansea City's passing style has been a refreshing addition to the Premier League this season.

While the likes of Leon Britton, Nathan Dyer and Danny Graham have all received praise for their contribution to Welsh club's cause, one of the Swans' major shining lights has been winger Scott Sinclair.

The 23-year-old, who is expected to feature against Queens Park Rangers this evening, joined the Swans in 2010 and with him every step of the way has been his girlfriend Helen Flanagan.

Former England youth international Sinclair began dating the former Coronation Street actress during a loan spell from former parent club Chelsea to Wigan Athletic.

The pair were said to be inseparable while Sinclair lived in Manchester, with Flanagan also based in the city due to work commitments.

However, Sinclair joined Swansea on a permanent basis in the summer of 2010, meaning that a relocation to Wales was necessary. Flanagan was unable to move with her partner because of the workload that came with being employed as a Corrie actress.

Rumours began to circulate that the pair would be forced to split. However, Bury-born Helen showed her commitment to Sinclair by having his name tattooed on her upper thigh.

Regarding the tattoo, Flanagan said: "I got the tattoo of his name done in the summer and I absolutely love it. I'll never, ever regret it. I love Scott to bits and I'm very happy."

The couple would not be apart for long though, as Flanagan went on to announce her departure from the soap, where she had played Rosie Webster for 12 years, in late 2011.

She has since relocated to Swansea, where the couple purchased a property together earlier this year.

While things continue to go from strength to strength for Sinclair on the pitch, things don't seem to be going too badly off the field of play either!
