In the snapshot, Helen snuggled up to her one-year-old tot who was sporting two tiny pigtails. "Lark and her pigtails," the doting mum remarked.

Despite the lovely picture between mother and daughter, many fans were left divided over Helen's newly-dyed brunette hair. "Cute. You look so different as a brunette. Not the same ol' Trixie! Love you as Trixie!" said one, while another added: "You're so pretty but I prefer you blonde."

A third post read: "You look so different with dark hair, didn't recognise you if it weren't for seeing your name above your post. You look fab though and Larks curls are too cute! Xxx."

Others heaped praise on the recent transformation, with one saying: "You look fantastic with dark hair, it really suits you." Another stated: "I love your hair dark lovely."

At the start of the year, Helen slowly transitioned her platinum blonde locks to dark. She surprised fans in January, when she showed off her hair a few shades darker before completely going chocolate brown.

Fans know her for playing the glamourous nurse, Trixie Franklin, in the BBC period drama. She shares both of her daughters with long-term partner Jack Ashton. The couple started dating in 2016 after meeting on set in South Africa, when Jack used to play Reverend Tom Hereward on the BBC period drama.

The mum-of-two - who has played the fan-favourite nurse on the show since it first premiered back in 2012 - recently expressed her worries about being written out of the show, admitting "you never know" what might happen.

"And they might just come to a point where they think, 'Do you know what, we've got nothing more to say about your character. There's nothing left to do with you. So you're off.' It happens."
