Helen's antics don't always please her parents

Helen Flanagan has admitted that her mum was devastated when she unveiled her Marilyn Monroe tattoo.

Former Coronation Street star Helen got the blonde bombshell’s face inked on her arm in October last year but her parents weren’t too pleased about it.

‘My mum cried for a week,’ says Helen, 22.

‘She was like, “Oh God, what happens on your wedding day?” My parents are really conservative – they were like, “Oh my GOD, you’ve had a tattoo?”‘

Helen, who also has footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair’s name tattooed on her inner thigh, knows her mum and dad don’t understand why she’s posed for some rather sexy photoshoots.

‘I was trying to explain it to them, and my dad was like, “That’s really cool,”‘ the I’m A Celebrity star tells the Daily Mirror.

‘But my mum was like, “I just like your smiling pictures.”‘
