Helen Flanagan's message to Carol Vorderman as she misses Grand National

Coronation Street’s Helen Flanagan has shared a message to friend Carol Vorderman as she misses The Grand National.

The actress attended Ladies Day yesterday, sporting a stunning £215 Karen Millen dress, and spoke to the ECHO earlier today about how much she "loved" getting glamorous for the event.

Helen’s fellow I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here…South Africa star Carol Voderman usually attends Aintree racecourse for the famous event, but this year she has yet to be spotted. Now, Helen has shared a message to her friend after she missed Ladies Day.

On her Instagram Story, Helen shared a photo of herself from Ladies Day with the caption: “Meerkat @carolvorders missed you today [heart emoji].”

In the next Story, she shared Carol’s response, which read: “My little Helen Meerkat Satanic Angel (full name) missed me today.” The two are set to star in I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here…South Africa on ITV later this month.

The series will see Helen and Carol joined by a number of other celebs, including Shaun Ryder, Amir Khan, Jordan Banjo, Phil Tufnell, Janice Dickinson, Fatima Whitbread and Paul Burrell. More names are expected to be announced later on.
