Helen Flanagan Under Fire For 'Freebie' Train Journey

Another day, another Helen Flanagan drama - this time she's come under fire for reportedly being allowed to take a 200 mile train journey - for free.

According to The Sun, Virgin trains took pity on the former 'Corrie' star after her credit card was declined when she tried to buy a ticket from Manchester to London's Euston.

The train company still allowed her to board the train, saying she could pay later after leaving her name and address, prompting anger from other passengers.

One told the paper: “If any normal person couldn’t pay for a ticket there’s no way they would be let on the train.”

Another said: “Why should she get to travel for free just because she’s famous? And she’s loaded.”

Helen - who's currently appearing on 'Celebrity Super Spa' - has been back to her flesh-flashing antics on the Channel 5 show.

The model and actress stripped to her bikini for a spray tan demonstration in this week's show.
