She is no stranger to hitting the headlines thanks to her antics, including a gun photo scandal last week.
But on Thursday night it was Helen Flanagan's outfit which caused a stir, as she headed out for a friend's birthday dinner in Manchester.
The 22-year-old actress opted to go without a bra as she showed off her famous figure in a low-cut black top.
I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star Helen teamed the top with a pair of black skintight jeans and a pair of thigh-high black boots for the occasion.
Aside from her sexy ensemble, Helen's glowing fake tan clashes with her frosted pink lipstick, with her dyed blonde hair swept back in a severe bun.
Joined by a group of girlfriends, Helen partied until 1am in Manchester city centre.
She initially arrived at the Australasia restaurant around the corner, but it looked like she may have arrived too late and soon left and made her way to Alchemist bar and restaurant around the corner.
Ahead of her night out, she tweeted her excitement at having a girls' night out following a few days at home with the family for Christmas.
She wrote: 'Very much looking forward to @emily_jennings birthday celebrations this eve be there or be square.'
She later posted a photo of herself with a few of her friends enjoying themselves.
Over Christmas, Helen revealed her mother was sick of her 'stupid' trademark pout as she posted a photo... or herself pouting on Twitter.
She wrote: 'Helen will you do a pic without that stupid pout... Er no mum I won't.'
Meanwhile, Helen has vowed to be more careful about what she posts on Twitter after a furore over her photo of her posing with a gun - which she uploaded just days after the shooting massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.
She blamed her 'hangover' with a reason for posting the image - which was taken in October - writing: 'I sometimes forget myself as I am being watched by the public in my tweets. I have truly never been more sorry in my life.'
