The actress is getting used to her new home

Helen Flanagan is slowly getting back to normal after her idyllic holiday in the Maldives.

The ex-Coronation Street star returned from vacation earlier this week and is getting her new Manchester apartment in order.

When I’m at mine which is rare every morning I have to go and drive to the Starbucks drive thru at Trafford as there is no food at mine,Helen, 23, told her Instagram followers yesterday.

I shall do my first food shop today 👍 and I must start taking my contact lenses out before I sleep 👀

A resolute Helen spent the morning sorting her flat out before posting a quick selfie online.

Busy morning with my lovely lady cathy who helps me keep organised and on top of my apartment 🙂 now finally off to get my roots done #thankgod x,‘ the actress wrote.

After showing off her ‘beautiful’ blonde locks a happy Helen returned home for a relaxing soak in the bath.

She posted: ‘Hahaha feeling happy content and balanced 🙂 drinking a smoothie 🙂 in my silk Victoria secret dressing gown 😂 about to run a bath while listening to beyonce xxx washing machine on! Took a while but feel happy in my little place 🙂 xxx.

In the reality star’s final selfie of the day she flaunted a new bronze shimmer while kicking back in a cosy onesie.

Couldn’t get a spray tan today so attacked a bottle of St tropez haha chilled in my onesie 😊💗,’ Helen posted last night.

It sounds like Helen is finally adjusting to life in her new pad after she moved out of the home she shared with her ex Scott Sinclair in July.

She split from the footballer, 24, following TV star Donatella Panayiotou‘s claims that she’d received flirty texts from Scott.
