The actress has displayed her nipples to the world

Helen Flanagan has stripped off for her first ever topless shoot.

The ex-Coronation Street actress bares her boobs – which she describes as ‘the best she’s ever seen on anyone in the world’ on page 3 of The Sun today.

Helen, 23, is posing in a shower in the saucy picture and covers up the lower half of her toned body with a well-placed white towel.

She’s been made up with heavy eye-liner and a slick of nude lipgloss, while her blonde hair falls loosely down her back.

Helen seems pretty pleased with the raunchy photo, posting on Twitter this morning: ‘Be proud of who you are. Stay true to yourself and do things your way.’

Her followers are also big fans.

‘Not a bad way to start #TittyTuesday! Miss Helen Flanagan, national treasure in the making! #HelenFlanagan #Topless,’ writes one.

Another says: ‘First thing I turn to this morning is Helen Flanagan nude in the paper.. I can already tell today is going to be a good day. #Flawless.’

One happy reader Tweets: ‘Helen Flanagan getting her pappies out for the lads in today’s sun has made work a little bit more bearable.’
