The star let her curly brown locks flow loose and looked a little nervous as she climbed a ladder down into the freezing water.

In the accompanying video, she gasped as she entered the water and started to splash about.

Meanwhile, a male voice off-screen could be heard teasing Helena, saying "It's fine!"

Helena took an outdoor dip on Christmas Day

And Christmas wasn't the only reason for her swim.

Posting the images to Instagram, the star shared that she has an extra special reason to celebrate – it was her birthday on Christmas Day!

The caption to her post read: "Another year [birthday cake emoji], another dip."

Her followers were quick to send her birthday well-wishes, with fellow model Eva Herzigova commenting: "Happiest bday my love!"

Other fans wrote: "Omgggggg!!! Happiest birthday," "You are the coolest. Happy Birthday," and: "You're crazy! Happy Birthday!"

Last year, the star wore a black-and-pink print swimsuit as she leapt into a canal, which she also shared with her followers on social media.

Helena shot to fame as a supermodel in the 1990s and earlier this year, her lookalike son Mingus made his catwalk debut.

Modelling an oversized black t-shirt, draped parachute trousers and a striking fringed scarf, the 21-year-old walked in Tommy Hilfiger’s London Fashion Week show back in February.

Appearing at the high-profile event, Mingus - who has previously modelled for Calvin Klein - was in good company as he joined the likes of Naomi Campbell and Winnie Harlow on the runway.
