The actress, who celebrated her birthday yesterday, excitedly posted a whole host of pics showing off her new long blonde locks.
Appearing to revel in the freedom to play with her hair colour, Helen wrote on Twitter: “I look exactly like my little sister @jnflanagan x My dads blonde, aunties, cousins... I love it #feelflanagan.”
When asked by her followers what inspired the striking hair colour change, the former soap star explained: “Wanted a fresh for my 22nd bday coming up... Had it done at Daniel Hersheson by the amazing @DemetriouVicky.”
It appears the retired soap star spent the majority of her birthday posting photos of her presents and cards on Twitter and re-tweeting birthday wishes from her followers and former Corrie co-stars.
Among those she thanked for their birthday tweets were former castmates and Corrie stars Samia Ghadie, Jennie McAlpine, Georgia Foote, Brooke Vincent, Catherine Tyldesley, Vicky Entwistle and Ryan Thomas.
Helen also showed off an expensive-looking ring with a large blue stone from boyfriend Scott Sinclair.
Since leaving Coronation Street, Helen has relocated to Wales to be with her Swansea City professional footballer boyfriend, who most recently played with Team GB at the Men's Football Quarter Final on Saturday.
