  • Helen is a down to earth Northerner who tells it like it is.
  • She hit headlines three years ago when she was involved in a tabloid scandal involving a well-known personality. She says she doesn't regret her actions, but wishes it hadn't come out in the press where it got blown out of all proportion.
  • She lives with her son who is ten and absolutely adores him.
  • Helen has very forthright views, and compares herself to Katie Hopkins. She was brought up a Catholic, but doesn't practice now and is strongly against abortion.
  • Helen’s best personality trait is making others laugh. "I’ve always been the class clown, and I think it's important to always have a sense of humour. I'm rarely serious".
  • She doesn’t like that she gets stressed really easily and has a short temper.
  • She recently spent £6,000 on veneers.
  • Her friends describe her as fiercely protective and very caring. "I can be nasty if I need to be, though I hate bullies".
  • Helen is single and has been for the last year as she finds it hard to trust men.
  • She doesn’t have a type as such, but hates materialistic people and loves a man that can make her laugh.
  • Helen's not looking for love in the House and says: "I find it cringe when people crack onto me. I really am quite frigid and awkward when it comes to blokes".
  • She's very competitive and often thinks she's better than what she is. "I'm up for anything. The more physical, the better".
  • Helen gets on best with people who are real. She also hates girls 'who act thick when they're not'.[1]
