During the day out, Helen shared a heartwarming clip of her ‘brave’ daughter Matilda touching a starfish in the aquatics section of the centre.
It comes after Helen, who is also mother to son Charlie, two, with her ex-fiancé Scott Sinclair, was cruelly mum-shamed after she shared where she bought her children’s school shoes from.
She took to Instagram to share a sweet picture of herself and her two daughters, unaware to later receive the backlash from it.
She penned: ‘So for once I’m actually organised for back to school. Wish I actually looked so calm and put together for the school run x
‘Picked up the perfect going to back to school shoes for my girls from @schuh that they both love. ( can’t cope with how cute Delilah looks on pic 3❤️… how is she not going into reception and into year one).
‘I always buy my kids shoes from @schuh #wewearschuh #AD.’
Delilah and Matilda looked smart as they stood standing in their uniform preparing to go back into their new school years.
However, the mum-shamers couldn’t resist to troll when they spotted her spending £149 on school trainers.
Off they go! Flashing a wry smile for the camera,Helen playfully captioned the post: ‘What idiot lets their kids out on scooters at The Trafford Centre’
Matilda’s shoes are by Dr Martens and are on sale in the store for £119, while Delilah donned a pair of black New Balance PE trainers costing £30.
Critics wrote: ‘You’re organised because it’s been gifted’
‘Being given uniform to advertise, helps’
‘You don’t pay for #AD, you get paid more than you’ll pay for the shoes’
‘Literally using your kids to shill, absolutely shameless behaviour. No doubt to pay for some more lip fillers or some other nonsense for your continuing quest to be somebody.’
While some opted for a negative approach, Helen’s fans gushed into her comments to support the actress.
Helen’s post was a paid one, with the actress making that clear by adding ‘AD’ at the end of her caption.

Fans wrote: ‘Everyone has to make a living… But maybe Helen is really happy with these type of shoes and wants to share with her fans… Please do not forget that Helen is a long standing child actress who worked hard in her career to get her to where she is now…
‘A professional actress is all glamorous sometimes (normal) And like any other professional actress she is also a parent and a mother … Who adores and loves her children… ( always putting her kids as her 1st priority).
‘Please let’s not put negativity comment when we have no idea what people might be really going through in their lives … Never judge a book by looking at the cover. My heart I love them so much. Adorable’
‘The are both so cute, cannot get over the height of Matilda now xxx’
