The actress isn't fazed by harsh comments over her modelling work

Helen Flanagan is proud of her work as a glamour model.

The ex-Coronation Street actress, 23, was criticised for ‘pot kettle black’ when she Tweeted about some of the Celebrity Big Brother contestants’ debauched antics on Saturday.

After she wrote: ‘Be a lady @bbuk i don’t mean to be be mean but that’s just too much,’ Helen received a very catty reply from another Twitter user.

‘because getting your tits out in every newspaper and magazine is the epitome of ladylike? #awkward,’ they Tweeted.

But Helen hit back: ‘I celebrate my femininity I just think all girls should always carry themselves like this 👸 in their head x.’

Helen – who recently reunited with footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair – often strips off her clothes for steamy shoots and likes to post sexy snaps on Instagram.

Despite some people disagreeing with her modelling career, she’s also received plenty of support over her CBB-related Tweet.

‘ms Flanagan not often I agree with u (sorry) but ur bang on with that comment #beAlady well said x,’ Tweeted one.

Another wrote: ‘anyone in their right mind knows you’re not mean…such a sweetie.’
