The actress has a tough day

Helen Flanagan was feeling pretty rough yesterday.

The ex-Coronation Street actress, 23, shared a photo of herself on Instagram wrapped up in a large scarf and looking downbeat while snuggled up on a chair.

She told her followers that she’d come down with a bug and desperately needed to rest.

‘Poorly today. Close to tears drained head feels like its been cut open. Want to sleep forever,’ Helen captioned the shot.

After having a difficult day, Helen let her fans know that she was in a much better mood this morning.

She’d been cheered up after having a life-affirming conversation with a pal.

‘Good chat with @melissasgram yesterday sorted me out been a very bad @thegreengoddesslife looking after myself now,’ wrote Helen.

‘postive energy no negative vibes ❤ .’
