Helen said: “It’s just something that I did for myself, I really wanted to do it for my confidence. I have been really nervous about sharing this.

“Obviously I am very much for body confidence, and very much for supporting other women, but supporting women in all choices that they decide to do.”

The mother-of-three explained that the reason she decided to have the surgery was to boost her confidence after she went from a natural E cup to barely filling a B cup bra due to breastfeeding her children.

Helen shares Matilda, Delilah and Charlie with ex-fiance Bristol Rovers footballer Scott sinclair. The couple broke up in October after 13 years together.

The actress said: “I never thought I would have a boob job. I always... I was always like, really, busty, I never thought that I would be someone that would need to have a boob job.

“Basically, my boobs just changed so much from pregnancy and breastfeeding. And it’s a really tricky one here, because I loved all my breastfeeding journeys. I’m a massive supporter of breastfeeding.”

The TV personality added that she is usually someone who “run’s around all the time doing a million things”, so she is finding it frustrating not being able to do her usual day-to-day tasks.

Whilst she recovers Helen can’t take a normal shower, lift the kettle or even pick up her children so she has someone helping her with the kids.
