Actress reminisces with Instagram fans

Helen Flanagan has always been a natural in front of the camera.

The ex-Coronation Street star posted some cute childhood photos on Instagram on Thursday, with one showing her looking very young in her school uniform.

‘Yo,’ Helen, 23, captioned the snap.

Little Helen wears a pink headband in her shoulder-length hair as she gives a modest smile.

In another picture the actress wears matching outfits with younger sister Jessica, now 21, and cutely holds onto her baby sibling.

‘My Jess 💕,’ Helen wrote.

Helen was clearly enjoying a moment of reflection having had a very busy week.

The pretty brunette shared a selfie from her car this morning and revealed that she’s spent many hours travelling back and forth to the capital over the past few days.

‘Tuesday Wednesday this week just call me the Motorway woman 👩,’ Helen told her followers.

‘Birmingham to London and back #5amstarts #work #homeatmidnight #congestioncharge #remembertopayno

‘I need a place in London 🏠💤💤💤💤’

The long journeys have left Helen craving some yummy-looking toffee and chocolate hot cross buns.

‘Dreamy #Chocolate #Bread #nohelen 🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫💗,’ Scott Sinclair‘s girl posted with a picture of the rolls.
