It's no secret that Helen Flanagan loves Marilyn Monroe, and now she's even morphing into her idol!

The former Corrie actress first showed her love for the screen icon by getting Marilyn's face tattooed on her arm.

And now Helen's posted a stunning Instagram selfie sporting Marilyn-inspired lips and tresses during a recent photoshoot.
