Former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan was left red faced as she appeared at a talent show on Monday
The actress was a judge on a new pilot show Is This Talent but turned up in her white Audi R8 with an expired road tax disc.
To make matters worse, the 23-year-old then parked her car in a Permit Holders Only bay.
Flanagan, who has appeared on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and has plans for her own reality TV show, was filming Is This Talent in Bolton along with Greek model Georgia Salpa and English glamour model Rhian Sugden.
Car Insurance , road tax and a valid MOT certificate are, of course, all legal requirements for cars.
Flanagan - who was wearing a black and white shift dress, black tights and a leopard-trimmed handbag - hopes the new show will prove a success. It is the idea of PR man Paul Alistair, who told The Bolton News: "This could be the next big TV programme so the people of Bolton could be involved in a bit of history as well as having a great night out."
