The actress admits she's changed

Helen Flanagan has hit back at rumours she’s had lip fillers and other cosmetic work.

The ex-Coronation Street star, 23, took to Instagram yesterday after a magazine feature noted how much she’d changed, using before and after pictures to compare how she used to look as a teenager with her appearance now.

‘Jokes,’ an annoyed Helen, who has had a little tweak to her nose, wrote.

‘In my before pic I was 16 just dropped out of sixth form (which I don’t recommend to do stay and finish your a levels really) just grew boobs and I have chubby cheeks

‘7 years later as a 23 year old woman I’m going to look different.’

It didn’t put Helen in a bad mood though and she joyfully blared out Pharrell Williams‘ hit song Happy from her car later in the day.

‘#100happydays #day39 feeling all the good vibes #love #excitment #gratitude #joy buzzing to give my sister her birthday gifts!’ Helen captioned a video from the vehicle.

‘Happy birthday to my amazing sister @janeoflan so proud of you #classylady 👩❤️ #thissongtho 🙌’

Helen also enjoyed some downtime with her mum and dad.

‘Good day ended with hugs off the parents 👱👧 and home comforts 👸,’ the brunette babe told fans.
