But she soon discovered that retail therapy doesn’t always live up to its name.

Luckily the rest of Helen’s weekend was a bit more peaceful.

Helen spent a relaxing Sunday evening watching I’m A Celebrity and shared a sexy selfie as she cuddled up in front of the TV, giving a flash of cleavage in a unbuttoned top.

After appearing on the show last year, Helen felt relieved that she wasn’t going through it again.
