She had put so much effort into her outfit but Helen Flanagan could have done with putting some thought into it too – after she tripped up thanks to a pair of vertiginous heels on Monday.
The former Coronations Street star fell right over, after her foot slipped out of a pair of nude Christian Louboutin pumps that boasted a ridiculously high heel and platform. Helen tried to break her fall with her arms, but she still ended up on her bottom.
It was clear that she was embarrassed by the situation as her friends rushed to her rescue, to try and pick her back up. But judging from Helen’s body language, which saw her clap her hand over her mouth, the reality star was more than a little mortified by the situation.
Helen was leaving a restaurant in Liverpool after having dinner with her Celebrity Super Salon co-stars when the slip-up occurred.
While house shoes are the likely reason for her fall, her inability to control her balance could also have been down to overindulging in some wine at the meal. But while Helen managed to avoid tears and took her accident in good spirits it seems one reality star was rather amused by the situation. James Argent was seen laughing hysterically as the pair drove away, with Helen clutching at her heels in her lap.
And it seems all the pampering and preening has rubbed off on Helen as she opted for an extravagant hair-do as she headed to filming on Monday morning. Sporting an over-sized bee-hive and a tight pink dress the 22-year-old looked like she had taken inspiration from Barbie as she strolled alongside new best pal James Argent.
But unlike the plastic doll the former Coronation Street star’s dress didn’t quite fit like a glove and instead pulled across her slim body. Featuring frill detail around the sleeves and slim straps, it seems the actress decided to forgo wearing a bra as she revealed perhaps a little too much of her chest as she strolled along.
Completing her outfit she wore a pair of towering nude coloured platform heels, that were clearly not the most appropriate thing for a day on her feet. But the blonde looked excited about her day ahead and grinned as she strolled arm in arm with Arg, who simply wore an all-black outfit. The pair have grown close during the course of filming with Helen regularly tweeting about how well they have got on.
She wrote: ‘Me and @RealJamesArgent in absolute stitches x’ , ‘Me and Arg Best Pals xxx’ and ‘Had so much fun the past few days #lovingit xxx’ Helen is appearing in Celebrity Super Spa alongside Yvette Fielding, Jody Latham, John Burton Race, and Rustie Lee. The laughs with the TOWIE star are no doubt just what she needed after a difficult few months, after her four-year relationship with footballer Scott Sinclair crumbled amid claims he had been ‘sexting’ another woman.
Helen moved out of their shared £6,500-a-month rented mansion in Alderley Edge, Cheshire and has since been living with her parents in Manchester. Although the Manchester City footballer is unsure over their future, Helen is adamant they should get back together. She told The Sun last weekend: ‘I’ve always been deeply in love with Scott and the past few weeks have been heartbreaking.
‘I want to work things through and get back together. I just want to be happy again. We’re spending time apart to sort things out, but my feelings for him have not changed.’
