The star posted a selection of snaps to Instagram from the filming of her character, Trixie, getting married.

In the first image, she stands in character in her wedding look alongside Olly Rix, who plays her groom, Matthew Aylward.

Many fans left messages of support in the comments section of Helen's post, sharing their feelings after watching the milestone episode for Trixie.

"Never been so happy for a fictional character in my life. I cried the whole episode," wrote one viewer.
