Helen Flanagan has come under fire after sharing her latest Instagram of herself and her daughter, Matilda, eight, on Monday.
The former Coronation Street star was met with backlash after posting the snap as fans claimed she used her children as ‘accessories.’
The 33-year-old posted the snap of her and her eldest cuddled up close as they donned matching multi-coloured patterned dresses.
In one snap the pair beamed at the camera while in another the mother and daughter looked at each other as they pouted ready for a kiss.
Helen captioned the post: ‘Fresh week’ yet not all fans saw the light-heartedness of the post.

One follower wrote: ‘It’s starting to look like your kids are just an accessory’ and a second replied to the comment: ‘Starting?’
Yet others were quick to praise the star as one wrote: ”What a great job you are doing. Even considering the shenanigans everyone goes through with kids!!!’
The mother-of-three shares children Matilda, Delilah, five, and Charlie, two, with her ex-partner footballer Scott Sinclair.
Helen and Scott split in July last year after 13 years together and the star has made it clear they will not be rekindling their romance.
Helen frequently shares her children with her followers and it is not the first time the star has been met with criticism.
Last month she received negative comments after she was cruelly mum-shamed after sharing a video from her ‘date night’ with son Charlie.
Sharing a clip of the evening with her fans, Helen was all smiles as she hugged her little boy and styled her long blonde tresses in a neat up do.
The video later transitioned and the former Coronation Street star was seen feeding her son from a plate of pasta.
She penned: ‘Date night with the only man for me.’

While many of Helen’s one million followers liked the clip, some were not so complimentary.
One wrote: ‘Poor kid, how much food are you trying to ram in his mouth, give him a chance.’
Another said: ‘Blimey, you nearly choked the poor kid!!’
And a third added: ‘Why are you ramming so much food into his mouth???’
Others took to the comments to defend the TV star, one wrote: ‘Best mum, honest and real! Love this.’
Another added: ‘It’s hard raising three alone but you’re doing great and looking fabulous’.
