The actress shares snaps on Instagram

Helen Flanagan was in an animal mood yesterday.

The ex-Coronation Street star, who has just returned from a break in the Maldives, shared a funny selfie on Instagram where she compared her pouting expression to a moose’s mug.

She also poked fun at her orange hands after a fake tan session went disastrously wrong.

‘Blurry pic in a dressing room yesterday I look like some kind of moose ha #faketanhell #sh**happens 🙈💗,’ Helen, 23, captioned the shot.

The mammal theme continued when Helen resumed filming on upcoming movie Mouse And Cat, where she plays a woman who fights back against an abusive uncle.

A snap taken on set shows a make-up free Helen cuddling an adorable Bengal cat, though the pussy looks keen to get away.

‘For you @mads_kelly hahahaha. Back to mouse and cat x,Helen posted.
