Bombshell: Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan's transformative peroxide blonde crop is growing out already
When she dyed her hair peroxide blonde, Helen Flanagan perhaps didn't think about how much maintenance the new 'do would require.
The 20-year-old actress, who plays Rosie Webster in Coronation Street, stepped out in Manchester today with her dark roots clear to see.
However, Flanagan seemed either unaware or unconcerned about her faux pas as she enjoyed the sunshine while shopping in the city centre.

Flanagan looked in good spirits as she strolled around, wearing a Noddy T-shirt bearing the slogan 'King of the Road' teamed with black jeans and a pair of huge sunglasses with bright pink flip-flops.
Following her transformation last month, a spokesperson for the actress told MailOnline: 'Helen has had the same hairstyle and colour for many years, and decided the time was right for a big transformation.
'She is absolutely thrilled with her new hairstyle and how it has made her feel.'
Flanagan's new look came during her three-month break from ITV soap Corrie to concentrate on her personal life.

After seeing her 'do for the first time, a spokesperson for the programme said they would be thinking of ways to write in the makeover upon her return.
The spokesperson said: 'We love Helen's look and knew she was having it done. It will be mentioned in some way on her return.'
One of the main reason's for Flanagan's break from the show was to concentrate on her relationship with footballer Scott Sinclair.
However, the 22-year-old striker has yet to comment on his girlfriend's new look.
Scott currently resides in Swansea after signing a three-year deal with Swansea in August.
