Helena opted for an eye-catching floral dress that boasted an array of blue and pink pastel shades as she headed to the cafe for lunch.

The star teamed her outfit with relaxed black sandals that boasted a pearl detailing with a pair of glasses perched on her head.

Carrying her essentials in a black leather cross-body bag, Helena was seen chatting to her friend as they sat outside at a table together.

It comes as Helena has been busy filming scenes for her role in an upcoming ITV drama series in Venice and Manchester. 

The three part drama, Nolly, penned by Russell T Davies, will explore the all-powerful reign and fall from grace of the inimitable Noele Gordon, who died in 1985. 

She was declared the ‘Queen of the Midlands’ thanks to iconic role as Meg Mortimer in Crossroads and was the darling of the establishment until it turned on her.

As flame-haired widow Meg in the long-running soap opera Crossroads, Noele became one of the most famous people in Britain.

Then in 1981, at the height of the show’s success and the peak of her fame, she was axed without ceremony, without warning and with no explanation, with the soap eventually ending two years later.

After she was dropped from the show, Noele’s ill health prevented her from accepting many more roles, and she died in 1985 at the age of 66.

Exciting: It comes as Helena is in the midst of filming the ITV drama Nolly, which will document the life of iconic Crossroads star Noele Gordo
