Actress has a busy day

Helen Flanagan is feeling the strain of her jam-packed schedule.

The ex-Coronation Street star had a busy day doing a photoshoot in London on Wednesday and decided to take a bit of time out afterwards by dining alone.

Lovely dinner before I drive home. I quite like eating on my own sometimes #happyinmyowncompany #geek 👍😇👸💗,’ Helen, 23, posted on Instagram with a snap of her meal.

She also indulged herself by donning a luxurious furry wrap to keep warm in the chilly weather.

Love my faux fur shawl 🎀,’ Helen wrote.

But her attempts at relaxation didn’t seem to work as the actress ended up nursing a sore back, so she was thrilled to finally unwind on Thursday night with a DVD of The Great Gatsby.

Busy day my back is killing me switching off with this #finally 😍,’ a relieved Helen told her followers.
