It’s been a while since we’ve seen Helen Flanagan enjoying a night on the tiles, so imagine our delight when these photos emerged of her painting the town red in Manchester over the weekend.
The former ‘Coronation Street’ actress was looking rather merry with her two friends in the wee small hours of Sunday morning, after celebrating their model pal Charlotte Dawson’s birthday.
From the looks of things, it had clearly been a long night for Helen, who managed to serve the paparazzi her usual trademark glamour, while still looking like she was ready for a kebab, two paracetemols and a ten-hour sleep.
Hel-Flan was also seen paying homage to her ‘Corrie’ roots in a pair of leopard print shoes that Liz McDonald would certainly approve of, giggling on her way out of a Manchester night-spot, arm in arm with her friends Jodie Stringfellow and Michelle McKenna.
We’re sure they were arm in arm because they were all such good chums. Not because anybody needed to be propped up. Nope. Nobody is saying that.
She also showed off her newly ombréd hairstyle, which first made its debut on her Instagram page earlier that evening, though a footloose and fancy-free twirl on the dance floor had left it looking a little more dishevelled by the time these pictures were taken.
Helen was enjoying a rare night away from her long-term boyfriend Scott Sinclair, who she revealed back in August that she was hoping to have children with, before they eventually tie the knot.
