The actress charts her trip on Instagram

Helen Flanagan is looking hot in Los Angeles.

The ex-Coronation Street star jetted into California over the weekend and went to explore the city in an eye-catching pink ensemble, teaming rose skinny jeans with some huge platform shoes.

The next day Helen’s exploits continued with a visit to a gospel church.

Ready for my soul to be uplifted people ❤,’ the blonde star, 23, posted on Instagram.

She attended Kirk Franklin’s Gospel Brunch at House Of Blues and was clearly inspired by the music.

Jesus is my friend ❤,’ Helen wrote alongside a video clip of the service.

Unfortunately the actress’s positive vibes didn’t last for long and she soon found herself seeking home comforts.

Feeling home sick 🐱,’ she posted later on.
