Joking that all she has eaten throughout December has been chocolate, Helen told fans: ‘I think from December 1st, all I’ve [eaten] is chocolate. I actually can’t believe how much chocolate I’ve consumed over the last few days.
‘I feel like the biggest sloth and I can feel the cellulite on my thighs.’
Keen to get herself back on track when it comes to her fitness regime and diet, Helen added: ‘But 2020 is coming up and I am determined to smash my fitness goals.’
While Helen didn’t specify exactly what goals she has in mind, she did tease that her efforts would result in big changes and said: ‘I can’t wait to share with you my transformation… I hope.’

Helen swears by home workouts to maintain her svelte physique and has shared her own series of ‘mumma fit workouts’ on fitness app TV.FIT, telling fans via Instagram: ‘I don’t need child care to go to the gym I can just workout in my living room and achieve my fitness goals.’
The soap star is mum to two daughters – Maltida, four, and 18-month-old Delilah, whom she shares with her footballer beau Scott Sinclair – and candidly spoke of her struggle to regain her pre-pregnancy figure in a recent social media post.
Sharing a throwback photo from when her eldest daughter Matilda was just a month old, Helen wrote: ‘Found this picture on my old iPhone, Matilda was about a month old here, this was four and half years ago.
‘My tummy hadn’t just magically sprung back, it was the last thing on my mind as I was too busy soaking up my baby bubble and I was just happy to be a mother and have this beautiful precious baby.’

Helen continued: ‘I did struggle with my pelvic floor after having Matilda. I remember the midwife mentioning it to me but I was just so overwhelmed with Matilda, I’d never been around babies before, I was like, “Pelvic what?”‘
Going into her second pregnancy with more knowledge, Helen said she didn’t have the same issue with her pelvic floor after welcoming Delilah, thanks to post-partum workouts designed to strengthen it.
The pelvic floor is the muscular base of the abdomen which supports the lower internal organs and can cause loss of control of the bladder if weakened.
Helen looked incredible in a bikini snap she shared to reflect on 2019, which saw her pose in a pink and white gingham two-piece while cuddling up to her children.
Throwing a sheer white cover up over her swimwear, Helen was seen smiling as her little girls, Matilda and Delilah, both wore swimsuits to match her bikini.
Alongside the post, that featured sweet photos of her family, Helen told fans she is ‘grateful for the love in my life’.
Happy: Helen shares her two daughters with her long-term love, footballer Scott Sinclair
