SHE might have the looks, but birthday girl Helen Flanagan definitely doesn’t have the brains.
The ditzy former Corrie babe spent her 23rd birthday yesterday posting pictures of herself in sexy poses on social networking site Instagram.
But while she enjoyed flowers, presents and a cake in the shape of shoes, your fun-loving Daily Star decided to look back at her recent best bits instead.
To celebrate another year of our fave telly babe, JENNIFER DUNKERLEY brings you a timeline on the best and worst wisdom of Helen Flanagan...
November 2012: During her jungle stint on I’m A Celebrity Helen tells campmates you are charged “about £100” for trying on hotel dressing gowns.
November 2012: She admits she does not know how to use her washing machine and sends all her clothes to the dry cleaners.
December 2012: The airhead says she is not high maintenance, despite having a salon blow-dry every day. She insisted: “There’s nothing wrong with getting a blow-dry.”
December 2012: Just days after the Sandy Hook school shooting massacre in America, Helen poses with a gun to her head on Twitter.
Despite posting a tribute tweet days before, the actress admitted she hadn’t thought about it when posting the picture.
She apologised on Daybreak, calling it “the stupidest thing I’ve ever done”.
February 2013: The soap star favourites pro-anorexia photos on her Instagram site and is blasted by eating disorder charities.
She later denied promoting the “thinspiration” movement by favouriting a photo of a very thin woman with the headline “craving is only a feeling”, saying she thought it was about dieting.
March 2013: Helen pledges support to animal rights charity PETA – then poses with her collection of leather handbags.
Helen responded: “I’m sorry but this is ridiculous! I’ve done something for charity – exotic animals are killed in a cruel way for their skins, leather is not!”
April 2013: The ex-Corrie babe has a hotel evacuated and police called because she thought she saw a murderer under her bed, but it turned out to be her reflection.
She confessed: “I was absolutely terrified and thought I was going to die. The whole hotel had to be evacuated and put on security lockdown.
“They checked all the CCTV and the police were called, then I realised that it was just a reflection under the mirror.”
May 2013: The UK’s Sexiest Woman makes a brainless gaffe when she defends child sex offender Stuart Hall, saying: “I just think, that’s an 83-year-old man. You could give him a heart attack. Have some respect.”
She later tweeted: “I don’t know anything about the Stuart Hall case. To be honest I was thinking about Bill Roache who has recently been arrested.”
May 2013: She clearly isn’t short of cash, thanks to her telly and modelling deals, yet is “caught shoplifting” £200 of beauty products from Boots.
She later paid and claimed it was “an honest mistake” but was banned from Boots for five years. Where will she buy her fake tan now?
June 2013: Helen is mocked online for tweeting about being “Home Alone” hours before armed robbers targeted her £2.8million house.
Tweeters called her “clueless” for advertising that she was home without her then boyfriend, Manchester City player Scott Sinclair, 24.
July 2013: A terrified Helen orders an emergency spray tan to her hotel at 1.30am because she feels “too worried about being pale” to sleep.
July 2013: Helen announces that she has the best boobs in the world.
The unshy owner of 32E’s told a men’s mag: “I have the best boobs I’ve ever seen on anyone in the world. Ever. They’re amazing.”
