The actress was spotted outside the ITV studios and looked a far cry from the flirty and flashy Helen we are used to seeing, as she dressed for business in a cool, tailored ensemble instead.
She teamed a long black blazer that was a little loose fitting, with some black trousers and a pair of white, open-toe heels.
Helen also appeared to add a funky edge to her all-black outfit with a khaki green top underneath and a black and brown handbag with hearts printed on the side.
Yesterday, the 23-year-old readied herself for her trip to the television studios in London with some freshly dyed locks and a pampering session, which left her feeling "content and balanced".
She debuted her lighter blonde hairstyle in a candid snap on Instagram and revealed to her fans that she was unwinding with a smoothie, a tanning session and a nice bath.
Helen wrote: "Hahaha feeling happy content and balanced :) drinking a smoothie :) in my silk Victoria secret dressing gown, about to run a bath while listening to Beyoncé xxx washing machine on! Took a while but feel happy in my little place :) xxx"
It is thought that the former Coronation Street star is referring to her new pad in Manchester, which she moved into over the summer after splitting with boyfriend Scott Sinclair.
The couple broke up after Helen discovered that her man was rumoured to be sexting another woman.
However, last month a spokesperson confirmed to Reveal that Helen and Scott are "trying to work things out" and have been meeting up with one another again.
Maybe Helen shouldn't be getting too comfy in her new place just yet then!
